WKBSA , LOYBSA, and COVID-19

 

WKBSA

The WKBSA has cancelled the schedule pool draw this weekend due to the order from the Ky Gov office in which he directed all recreation facilities and community centers to be closed by 5pm Wednesday. The WKBSA board of directors had a conference call Tuesday night and authorized each area to form teams per the WKBSA rules and most issues were discussed and resolved via the conference call. There are a few issues that remain in which conference/video calls will happen to complete the process of placing all kids on teams. As the areas complete this, parents will be notified by the coach on what team your child is on.

 

However, due to the order of the KY Gov as noted above, All WKBSA teams and players practices, games and activities are cancelled until the order is lifted by the Governor. It is also important to note, the players and teams will not have insurance beginning on April 1st. Once we get a date to start the season, then insurance will be resumed on the players and teams. In Simple terms, without the revenue from actual games and players in the WKBSA, there is no way to keep the insurance active until we resume play.

 

It is our desire to ensure we do the upmost to protect each and every child first and foremost. We hope to be able to play as scheduled by the beginning of May just as we normally do, but the COVID-19 crisis will determine that. We will keep you posted as we move along. Coaches should carefully consider when to purchase uniforms and equipment based on the news of the pandemic. A good point of reference that we are using as a guiding principle is that of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA). We will monitor the responses of the KHSAA and take into account their actions and that of the Governor's office and provide updates as we can.

Thank you for playing in the WKBSA and pray that each of you and your families remain safe and healthy. We additionally pray for the leaders of KY, the USA and that of the world during this pandemic. We look forward to seeing you soon!!
