COVID-19 has delayed the opening of registration for the 2020-2021 SAYBA travel season. SAYBA continues to navigate COVID-19 and impacts it has on youth sports.
This being said, SAYBA hopes to open registration for the 2020-2021 travel basketball season soon (hope is for the end of July or first week in August). We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and impacts it might have to the SAYBA travel season. Guidance/Guidelines from the state, local schools or the government could impact our season or cause for a variation to our handbook (practices/games, etc). We plan to review this as impacts are known. SAYBA is currently working on a Return to Play which will be added to the website once finalized.
Tryout dates have been set for the weekend of September 11-13. Exact date and times for each grade will be determined as it gets closer (tryouts are mandatory). Please plan to keep this weekend available; hope is to post exact date/times 1 week prior to tryouts. We know baseball currently has their tryout date set for September 12th as well, we plan to work with Sartell baseball to coordinate times, to hopefully not overlap per grade. Again, this is all depending on guidelines around COVID-19.
Just a reminder that when school is closed (or closes early) due to weather related issues, there will be no SAYBA practices those nights. This is for the safety of the players and parents, regardless of if the practice was at one of the schools or the community center.
