We hope this post finds families safe and healthy. I am sure many of you are aware of “Dial Back, Minnesota” as introduced by Governor Tim Walz last night. The plan puts youth sports on hold for approximately four weeks.
What does this mean for Big Lake Youth Basketball?
The In House Program (K-3rd grades) will be temporarily on hold and we are planning to start up again after 1/9/2021.
The Travelling Program (4-8th grades) will be temporarily on hold. Stay tuned for e-mails from coaches regarding return to practice after 12/28/2020. Tournaments are anticipated to resume after 1/9/2021.
Pictures will be rescheduled after 1/9/2021.
If your team is scheduled for practice tonight (11/19) the Board is leaving it up to the coach on whether or not they want to hold the practice. Your coach will be in contact with you on whether or not practice will be held tonight. Effective Friday 11/20 practices will be on hold until further notice. Coaches will remain in communication regarding this.
The Big Lake Youth Basketball Association recognizes the importance of youth sports and activities and we are committed to getting the kids back in the gym as soon as we are able to do that safely.
Please reach out with questions or concerns.
Big Lake Youth Basketball Association will be following all guidelines put in place by the Minnesota Department of Health. Please note that this information will continue to be updated as often as the information is released or changed.

More information to come as schools start to determine school year schedules.
The Big Lake Youth Basketball Association (BLYBA) is an independent non-profit organization and is not part of the Big Lake School District programs.
We are a community group of volunteers interested in the promotion of basketball in the Big Lake attendance area and the development of a competitive basketball program. Participation will focus on camaraderie, sportsmanship and the intense instruction of basketball fundamentals and having fun while traveling to other communities.
