Goldenball Basketball (Grades 3-12)
August 25, 2020
Hello Goldenball Coaches and Team Organizers,
We hope you and your families are managing the Covid-19 pandemic as well as possible. So much has changed since we ended our basketball season March 8, 2020. By March 17, Portland Parks & Recreation closed all programming and we began our new telework assignments.
The Sports world has completely changed from last season. Fall sports nationwide are postponed until spring 2021. Our tri-county area remains in Phase I and children will continue distance learning until at least early November.
Portland Parks & Recreation and the City of Portland follow the Oregon Health Authority guidelines. Basketball is still not allowed due to high risk factors of virus transmission. Gyms will not be available to the public for several months. Due to the uncertainties we face in trying to offer our sports programs, we are unable to offer the Goldenball league this upcoming season.
We look forward to better days ahead and will share updates as we are able to move towards a safe return to sports participation. Our greatest concerns are for the continued health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff.
Thank you for your contributions to our Goldenball program and we hope to see you all again soon!
