Basketball Off-Season Training

The basketball off-season training program has officially started June 21st. The training is being held at the Peak Performance facility on Dave Ward Drive, and we are using the Peak Performance trainers to run the sessions. The sessions are setup by age group and gender, and they are having two sessions a week focusing on skills and drills. This is a great opportunity to build basketball skills in preparation for the coming season! If you were thinking about starting to play basketball with the Falcons in the fall, now would be a great time to get started. If you are interested in getting involved with the off-season training, then reach out to our Basketball Director Ben South (501-733-6430) to get more details.

State Tournament Cancelled

We are very sad to inform you that the 2021 State Basketball Tournament has been cancelled because of no approval being received from the ADH (Arkansas Department of Health). We considered some alternatives, but nothing proved to be viable in this situation. We remain hopeful that we will be able to get back to our normal State Tournament format next year, and pick back up where we left off.

Home Game Guidelines

Here are our guidelines for home basketball games at Peak Performance. Please enter the building through the doors on the east side of the building (facing Wal Mart). Face coverings will be required for all person’s present, except for children under the age of 10 years old. Athletes and referees will not be required to wear a face covering while actively participating, but otherwise they should wear one. Coaches will need to wear face coverings during the game. Everyone will have their temperature checked as they enter the building. There will be a sign-in sheet for everyone to sign, so Peak will know who to contact in case of someone coming down with COVID-19 that may have exposed other individuals at a game. Family units can sit together on the bleachers, but everyone else should sit six feet apart. There is seating capacity for about 60 fans, so approximately 30 fans per team. Please keep the attendance to immediate family only since we have limited capacity. We will Facebook Live the games on our Facebook page, so they can be watched by those not able to attend the game in person. After the game is completed everyone will need to leave the building, so that the building between can be cleaned between games. Please exit through the doors on the south side of the building (facing Dave Ward Drive). Then the next group will be let in to watch the next game, so please just attend the games in which you have a child involved. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we do our best to provide the opportunity for our children to play basketball this season!
