Information for 2021

Welcome to Parkway's Winter Basketball season!

This year's basketball season will look a little different from our past seasons with Upward.  Parkway will host a modified basketball season to allow us to still offer an outlet for children to play, connect and learn more about Jesus while taking the necessary precautions for conducting a high contact sport like basketball.  This year's  league will extend for six (6) Saturday's beginning in January for grades K-8th.  There will be no separate practice nights.  Saturday's will feature skill development, a scrimmage within specific age groups and a short devotional during each age group.  Below are some questions you may have.  We have attempted to answer them as things are at this moment.

When will the season run?

Games will run for 6 consecutive Saturday’s from January 9th thru February 13, 2021.  There will be no skill assessments this year.

What will the age groups be?

Age groups will be similar to previous seasons. However, registrations and the number of players will ultimately determine the groupings.

Will my child be on a team?

Teams will be created within specific age groups, with coaches who will coach the skills portion of the practice together.  Coaches will then partner together to create teams for scrimmages, which may change from week-to-week at the coaches discretion. 

Will parents/families be able to watch their child play?

This season we are limiting the number of spectators to immediate family only (parents and siblings).

Will Stars and/or Recognition continue into this season?

Yes. Recognition and positive affirmation of every player will continue to be an essential part of our league. 

What protocols will be in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone?

We will have physical distancing, hand sanitizers throughout the building, and a traffic flow that will allow us to limit overcrowding and milling around.  We will also ask spectators to wear face-masks while inside the building.

Concessions

There will be no concessions this year.
