My name is Adam Jewett and I along with Greg Ferguson will be coaching your daughter’s basketball team this winter season. I want to welcome you and your daughter to the team.
Before I get into information about the team, practices and games, I want to share information about things related to COVID-19 and its impact on this season. There is a coaches meeting on Tuesday where we may receive additional information that we will need to share. One thing for sure is that the situation is fluid and things can change at anytime or additional protocols may be put in place, etc.
Attached you will find the BRYC Return to Play Guidelines. Please read these guidelines before coming to our first practice. Some key points I want to share from these guidelines are:
- Each player must have their own indoor basketball. The size is 27.5, Amazon or Dick's Sporting Goods is a good place to start. BRYC is not providing us with basketballs this year.
- No parents or spectators will be allowed into the gyms/facilities.
- All players, coaches, referees, etc. will wear masks at ALL times. We will make sure the girls are spread apart during water breaks.
- All participants will be required to complete a health screening prior to each practice and/or game. We have been advised in lieu of collecting paper versions, we could automate the form online. I know from having to fill these out daily for school and sports, that it is easy to forget. Please note that we have to keep detailed records for the county should there be there be a COVID-19 related instance. You can find the Google form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/19WqXP4yL1gRlfZumQwc4nTRltVMUpnvox68Mg3lDPoo/edit
If you have any questions or concerns around COVID-19 guidelines please let us know or e-mail Director Megan Fay,
Below you will find details about the team, practices and games. If you have any questions about expectations, practice, games or anything in general please email me or call me at (518) 390-0753. If you have a scheduling conflict with practice time or other issues, please contact Director Megan Fay,
Practices will be on Thursday evening at 5:30PM at White Oaks Elementary School, 6130 Shiplett Blvd, Burke, VA 22015.
Our first practice will be this Thursday, January 14th. If you cannot make practice please let me know.
As it stands, our first game will be on either January 23rd or 24th.
Greg and I are excited to coach your daughter this season. Please lookout for information and reminders next week.
Thank you and have a nice rest of your weekend and we will see you this Thursday.
