COVID-19 Update

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Board of Directors has decided that we will move forward with volleyball and basketball athletic activities, as we do our best to comply with the guidelines issued by the Governor and the Department of Health. Of course, each family will need to make their own decisions on what they are comfortable participating in, but we did want to provide the opportunity for those student athletes that are comfortable with playing this season. Volleyball has started to practice, and preparations are being made for basketball to begin in September. We do ask for your patience as we are going to have to make adjustments on the fly, and this will mean that things won’t always be as convenient as we would like. For example, the Don Owens Sports facility is not yet available to use, so the volleyball practices are being held at the Hangar in Greenbrier which is a bit of a drive, and there is no air conditioning. We anticipate that things will be pretty fluid the first couple of months, but hopefully it will settle down into our normal routine after that.

It was decided to cancel the Basketball End-of-Year party, but we are making plans for a modified Basketball Kick-Off meeting at the beginning of September. Please stay tuned for details on the Kick-Off meeting to come later.

COVID-19 Virus Update

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we need to postpone our Volleyball Informational Meeting that was originally scheduled in April. We will let you know when we are able to reschedule to a later date. If anyone has any questions before we meet, feel free to contact Coach LeSha Smith at 405-496-6700 or jlandlesha@att.net.

We are also postponing the Basketball End-of-Year party for the same reason. We will let you know when we are able to schedule it at a later date. We trust and pray that everyone will stay safe and healthy, and we will get together soon to celebrate the season that the Lord did bless us with!

Nationals Cancelled

National Basketball Tournament Has Been Cancelled

I am very sorry to inform you that they have cancelled the National tournament due to the Coronavirus outbreak. They decided this in light of President Trump’s request for extra caution and the NBA suspending their season. I know all of the players and coaches will be extremely disappointed, as I know I am sure broken hearted about it. In any case, I will contact the Hotel tomorrow to let them know that we will need to cancel our rooms, and will let you know if there is anything that you will need to do. Stay tuned for details on the end of year party.
