This page offers some general information on the MPRA Basketball program. If you have other questions not addressed here, email email@example.com. We will generally respond within 48 hours.
General Info: This season will be unlike any other. Please be patient as we work through these difficult times. Practices will be reduced this season due to the late start. Due to the current circumstances, games may not be able to be made up. There is no guarantee that missed games will be rescheduled.
The MCC is currently available for use. Our school partners are still evaluating the use of the facilities for outside organizations. We will continue to monitor the situation with the schools for potential use this season. The season may be extended to the end of February due to the potential of limited gym space. This may also affect the All Star program at the end of the season. We will not know the exact schedule until we get close to the start of practices.
COVID Precautions will be updated and communicated as necessary. Capacity at the facilities will be reduced. Masks will be required at all times (excluding players on the court) when inside the public facilities. Each facility has the right to remove anyone not following COVID-19 protocols.
