Spring 2020 Training and Practice Schedule

We are excited that we have the most registrations for Spring basketball to date but at Youth Stars, our top priority is the health and well-being of our athletes, teams and communities. In light of the most recent COVID-19 information available, we have taken the precautionary measure to temporarily suspend the start of our Spring season indefinitely until we have a better outlook on our ability to hold our season safely and effectively. 

 

In addition, we plan to refund all our registrations today in case families need to use those extra funds.

 

Once we are green lighted to proceed, we will re-open registration.  Thank you for all your support.  #together #morethanbasketball #
