: : : : good morning
: : : : what do you guys think? will there will a regular 2020-21 hs basketball season???? Based on current events, if i had to bet, id say NO - the 2020-21 season will be cancelled. There will be NO HS or college games. No Travel teams. No Park League - No AAU - No tournaments. Nothing. What say you?
: : : : but lets say somehow, there is a season. It will more than likely look differently than what we are used to. I believe fans/number of fans allowed in gyms will be limited.
: : : : Times have changed. This will change everything. Sad day in America and the world.
: : : ; No problem !
: : Summer ball is definitely cancelled for high schools. AAU will try to schedule some stuff but they will make players and families sign waivers that they arenít responsible if someone gets sick. Youíd be an idiot to expose your child or family at an AAU event over the summer! I think that IF there is a season, and thatís a big IF, it will be league only which starts in January. But realistically, I donít think there will be high school sports this upcoming year.
: CIF has not made it official, but IF there is a season, everything will be pushed back. Football is slated to start with practices in Sept and season starts in Oct-Jan. Basketball would start around Christmas and end in March to coincide with March Madness, Spring sports will be March-May.
: There was talk about League only, but it will be full season apparently. A reason being is that the TV (Fox and/or Spectrum)want their contract fulfilled with games played. CIF may just oblige.
If could be fear mongering, it could be trying to play it safe, but the CDC is thinking there could be another big outbreak in winter when flu season hits. Unfortunately basketball is a winter sport.
