We hope you are all staying safe and keeping in good health.
The TCBL Board has met periodically over the summer to discuss the pandemic’s potential impact on our program for the 2020-21 season. As you know, TCBL relies almost exclusively on public school gym access. At this point, it is unclear when live basketball will be authorized by NY State and when public school facilities will be available for any indoor high school or youth sports. Therefore, our normal planning process is on hold.
Nonetheless, with safety and adherence to evolving NY State regulations as our number one priority, we will make every attempt to organize some form of a season if and when conditions allow. Some possibilities are:
-Delayed season start (e.g. early January).
-Local divisions only ("mini league").
-Weekend tournaments instead of full league play.
Unfortunately, there also remains the possibility that we are unable to offer any programming this year. We certainly hope that's not the case.
Thanks for your patience and support during these difficult times. We will keep you posted and welcome any comments or ideas you may have.
