BASKETBALL


    2020-2021 WINTER PROGRAMS


    The 2020-2021 season has faced more challenges than any before it. Due to the challenges faced in this pandemic and gym availability ORYA Basketball is offering a Skills & Scrimmage style program approach. Younger age groups will focus on foundational skills via fun games & activities while older age groups will work on age-appropriate skills for a portion of each session saving some time for inter-group scrimmage time. This will allow time for development as well as time for game play in each session.

    COVID-Safety: ORYA basketball is taking adherence to ORCSD and ORYA guidelines seriously. We expect all players, coaches and visitors to any ORCSD facility to adhere to our Indoor COVID-Safety Guidelines.  Below are a few highlights but all participants should read our guideline document thoroughly.

    • Every player and coach will be required to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES while in the gym.
    • Depending on age group, spectators will be either be limited or not allowed.
    • Every player, coach & spectator will be screened with temperature taken on-site prior to entry to gym space.
    • Practice groups will be limited to 20 or fewer participants

    If you are not comfortable with those minimal elements above we recommend waiting until the 2021-2022 season to get back on the court. In the event the season is cut short due to State or ORCSD guidelines your volunteer AG will work with ORYA to determine if pro-rated refunds, credits or an alternative option can be offered. 

    *Note that no refund or pro-rated refund will be given for any families that are required to quarantine during the season.

    Why is there a difference per town for recreational program fees?
    When ORYA receives funding from the communities we serve, it directly subsidizes the participation of our ‘non-competitive’, recreational programs for members of that specific community. The differences between each residency-rate is a direct reflection of the expected or actual funding from each community in the budgeted year. If one community has a lower player fee, it means that community has chosen to reduce your participation fee in youth, recreational athletic programs. Travel-based programs are not subsidized by town funding.

    • 2021 spring outdoor skills

      Since our fall program was such a success we’ve brought this program back for the spring! Unlike ORYA’s regular season program which builds from skill work to game-play and game-play scenarios, this program will focus exclusively on individual skill with the ball. Developing ball handling skills, offensive moves and shot mechanics will be primary goal of the program. Offering this program outdoors is still a new experience for all and one we hope to make a regular offering in our fall and spring calendars. All sessions will be led by Coach Jason Campbell.

      Specific covid-safety guidelines will be emailed to all registered participants prior to the start of the program.
