Dear Parents, Dear Players,
We are currently living due to COVID a difficult time for the country, families and for our favorite sport, Basketball.
According to the protection plan for our canton and the city of Versoix, we have the possibility of organizing training for children up to 12 years old without any restriction except of course keeping the distance, washing hands in entering and leaving the gym and wear the mask from the parking lot to the basketball court and at the end of training put the mask back on until the exit of the gym.
For players of 16 and over, training is unfortunately canceled.
For teams between 12 and 16 years old, we had the possibility of organizing training in the Founex gym in Vaud. But according to the protocol of the canton of Vaud players from 12 to 16 years old can train normally but always have to wear the mask, before, DURING and after training.
I am aware that it is not easy to play with a mask on, which decreases the breathing, the vision of the game and is very difficult to hold on the face.
We also feel a certain reluctance from some parents to send their children to training.
The championships are normally stopped until the end of November 2020.
We will ask each coach to make contact via WhatsApp to the players of their teams to ask them if they are interested in continuing the training under these conditions, especially with the mask issue.
If we have at least 50% of players are interested we will organize group training of less than 15 players. If this is not the case, we are suspending training until the end of confinement.
Sorry again for this setback due to this very virulent virus which forces us to make difficult decisions for our club.
I wish you and your whole family to remain in good health, and see you soon.
