Hello Players, Coaches, families and Basketball enthusiasts,
Last week we (CNWB - Calgary NorthWest Basketball) received a disappointing email from the city of Calgary, Parks & Recreation Dept., that they had been notified that all three school boards have suspended gym rentals and use until August 31, 2021. When I read this email my heart sunk as I have a great love for not just basketball but basketball for kids. For the first time in my 40 years as either a player, referee, Coach or executive member has a season of basketball been effected like this.
In talking with the executive of CMBA there will be discussion at the next board meeting about Spring ball season and how that will be effected due to the lack of gyms for teams to practice in. If the school boards and the city of Calgary Change their stance we will be the first to let you know. We the CNWB executive are truly disappointed and sorry that this season has ended this way. We look forward to next year in having an awesome season and seeing lots of kids participate in this great sport.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me by email and I will be more than happy to answer any questions or field any comments you have.
Remember to take the precautions to be safe out there and Happy Halloween.
