Season Overview: What does Basketball Look Like for 2021?
This year, we are thrilled to be planning a basketball program. In light of circumstances regarding COVID-19, we are following all recommendations from the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development. Our plan this season is to offer a safe and fun recreation basketball program during the winter months from January through the beginning of March 2021. This program is open to all experience levels. Players who have participated in SPR Travel Basketball programs in the past are eligible to participate. This program will focus on skills and drills, intersquad scrimmage, and if conditions permit, inter-community game play.

Working with Mike Nelson, a long-time volunteer coach for SPR with a decade of coaching experience in our programs, we are planning to offer an extended season beginning mid-March for those interested in a travel basketball experience for grades 3-8. This is contingent on COVID-19 trends and conditions being favorable in our area to permit games. All players must have participated in the recreation program in 2021 to be eligible.

COVID-19 Prevention Protocols
For Players:
1. Upon arrival, players will report to SPR Staff for a health screening and temperature check. Facial coverings will be required during the health screening process.
2. Players will utilize hand sanitizer at the health screening station before joining their team.
3. Update 11/5/2020: the use of facial coverings during practice and games will follow all state guidelines during the season.

For Parents/Spectators:
Indoor program group size capacities are limited to no more than 50 per CDC guidelines, which includes participants, coaches, officials, staff, and spectators. To meet this requirement, spectators will be limited as follows*:
1. Kinder Coed and Grades 1&2 divisions: Only 1 parent/spectator per player permitted for practices and games.
2. Grades 3-8 divisions: Practices are closed sessions. Only 1 parent/spectator per player permitted for games.
3. During times spectators are permitted, all must wear masks and stay 6 feet apart. Bleachers will not be used and distance areas will be marked.
4. Spectators attending will participate in a health screening and temperature check upon arrival.
*Any exceptions to spectator limits must still adhere to total group limits and may or may not be able to be accommodated.

Equipment Procedures:
1. Any shared equipment will be cleaned and sanitized between practices.

Grades 3-8 EVALUATION PROCESS
SPR will be holding evaluations for team placement for boys and girls grades 3-8 recreation basketball during the first week of practices in January. We will not be accepting teammate requests. To determine teams, players will participate in a short evaluation process overseen by Saco Parks and Recreation program staff and coaches. This is not a cutting process; our goal this season is to organize teams and balance skill levels across all divisions. Players must be registered to participate in evaluations. Please direct any questions on recreation basketball evaluations to parksandrec@sacomaine.org.
