Attention Basketball Families
So after a very lengthy delay with the Town of Edson in attempting to acquire gym space for our 2023 season, it has been determined that there is not enough gym availability for us to run our program this year. We obviously have some restrictions in the timing of our practices due to the younger age of our participants and we simply couldn’t make it work. My apologies to the kids who were looking forward to being able to get back out on the court this year. After Covid stole our last three seasons, I was eager to be able to provide an opportunity for the kids to get out, be active and to start to grow their love of the sport. While I’m incredibly disheartened by this news, I guess on the other hand, it reinforces that sport and wellness are very important to people in this community if there are that many groups looking for space. It is obvious that this town is crying out for a multi-use facility and while we’ve been assured it is in the works, I definitely recommend getting in touch with the Town of Edson and Yellowhead County to share your thoughts and stress the importance of getting this project done sooner then later.
A big thank you to everyone who stepped up and offered to help with the program this year. Rest assured, I will be calling on you all again this fall to get this program up and running early so that we can have the best season yet!
