UPDATE REGARDING SVAA BASKETBALL PROGRAM
November 13, 2020
Richardson Independent School District informed us this morning that they will not rent any facilities for indoor activities in December. We understand the challenges RISD is facing and know this was a difficult step to take. No decision has been made for subsequent months. Based on our conversations with RISD, we expect to have additional guidance by early December. RISD will continue to monitor COVID-19 numbers in their school district and base its decisions on the trend lines of those numbers. Until we learn more, we are placing the Basketball program on hold. There will be no basketball activities in December. We apologize for any inconvenience that the delay may cause you and your children. Our program uses over 20 RISD gymnasiums and is very dependent on access to those facilities. We will provide you with additional information as soon as we have more to report. Thanks for your patience.

The Spring Valley Athletic Association continues to monitor the evolving developments surrounding COVID-19, including the guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments. SVAA completed its delayed Srping Season Sports in June and July by adopting guidelines for parents, officials, and players to follow.
SVAA plans to follow the same approach for its Fall Sports. You will find the the guidelines SVAA has developed for Football (tackle, flag, and 7v7), volleyball, basketball and baseball HERE.
As Govenor Abbott noted in his guidelines for youth sports operators and families, COVID-19 has not left our community and can be easily spread from person to person. While we have designed processes to help reduce the possibility of the spread of the virus, there is not guarantee those processes will be completely effective. Anyone electing to participate must realize that the risk of COVID-19 infection exists. Since the disease may be spread by those without symptoms, the possibility of spread to others is high, certaianly when compared to sheltering in place. Please review the checklists for Youth Sports Operators and Youth Sports Families issued by the Govenor on May 18 and executive order GA-29 issued on July 2.
SVAA appreciates your patience and understanding during what continues to be an unusual time for all of us.
