With Covid-19, this season will look different than years past. Our board is working on contingency plans but as all of us know, the information about this virus is constantly changing. At this point, we are proceeding with season planning as close to normal as possible. For Traveling, we will hold tryouts starting the last week of September and complete team formation in early October. In-House/Rec season planning will depend on additional facility availability, as the district is currently not scheduling Elementary school gym use.
We are collecting no player fees with registration. For Traveling, there will be a $50 tryout fee due for tryouts, and season fees for Traveling will be $475 for 5th-8th grade and $450 for 4th grade (inclusive of the tryout fee). In-House and Rec fees will be determined as we get additional information regarding facility use regulations.
Our Traveling fee increase is due to changes in most of our tournament fee structures: Host organizations are charging higher rates to register our teams, but will no longer collect individual fees at the entrance. We are doing the same with our own tournament. We believe that the increase we are adding to player fees will be more than offset by the savings the average family would see from individual admission charges at the door. Through our work with other associations, we know that our fees are already below average for the metro area, and we are only passing on costs that are directly required for the increase in registration fees and new expenses associated with building usage and new sanitation rules.
We believe that sports are an important part of the lives of our players, and are doing what we can to plan for another successful season, but the health and safety of our players, coaches, and families is of the greatest importance. We will follow guidance from the School District, the State of Minnesota, and Minnesota Youth Basketball Alliance as we proceed. We can all expect to see some differences from years past, but can't predict what those changes will be.
We will update the site as we get more information about what our season will look like. We will also be publishing a refund policy before we collect season fees in case our season is interrupted. Go Panthers!
