Compete for the Top

Our YMCA currently has one of the top youth basketball programs in the state at every grade level and our year-round program develops youth players both on and off the court.  

Spring Hoop Elite

Hoop Elite Parents,

It’s been a challenging few weeks for everyone, especially those who are here to serve the community, like the YMCA. As we’ve noted previously, this situation is fluid and as more and more information becomes available each day, it allows us to re-evaluate our decisions. Given the updated guidelines/information on COVID-19, and with the statement from the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown today, we have made the following adjustments to our spring programming to comply with the order and other additional information.
 

Practices | Postponed until Tuesday, April 28 and run through Friday, June 5

Games | Postponed and will operate on the schedule below.

Spring Schedule
Beginning of Season Tournament | May 9 & 10 | 3 Games
Week 1 League | May 16–17    
Week 2 League | May 23–24
Week 3 League | May 30–31
End of Season Tournament | June 6–7 | 3 Games

We strongly believe that pushing the schedule back to late April & early May start dates is the best option to allow programming for the kids to happen this spring, which we feel is important to help everyone through this crisis. We also understand that the situation is fluid, and if any additional information is released that makes this schedule untenable, we will be sure to be in contact with you regarding any potential adjustments or changes. Be sure to follow @bhyhoopelite on Instagram, as we will be posting frequently, including daily basketball workouts.

We are all part of the Hoop Family and we will get through these challenging times together!

Best,
The Beaverton Hoop YMCA Staff
