Yateley Silverbacks Basketball Club News story


Silverbacks COVID Update

23 Feb 2021

Hello Silverbacks family.
Corrine, Our Silverbacks Covid Officer, has looked at the detail from the recent government briefing last night and has provided a club update:
The announcements from the government encourage us that there is a way back towards a return to play for organised indoor sport in the next few months.
The shape and timing of that return is not written in stone and will depend on interpretation of the road map by both Basketball England and Yateley Manor School.
As you know- Silverbacks, supported by YMS, have always pushed hard to get back to play at the earliest opportunity- and certainly the outdoor baskets you all funded last year are going to pay dividends again.
It seems that school sport will be first; then outdoor organised basketball; then indoor basketball for  juniors up to U18; and finally adult indoor play.
The earliest possible legal date for outdoor play would be 29th March- and there are many influences that could delay that target. Rest assured we will be working hard behind the scenes to plan and organise our safe return to play- and will give you all plenty of notice so you can dust off your kit!
Please continue to maintain fitness and ball skills as you can at home in the meantime- we don’t want injuries when we finally get back on court.
Please message me if you have any questions.
Stay safe
Corinne
