Hello AYBA Families,
We miss you guys, and we miss basketball!
We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to have some sort of Rec league this winter.
We are in the process of formatting a safe way to play in this time of Covid-19. Our number one priority is the safety and health of our AYBA families, and our second priority is to play basketball.
We don’t know yet when we’ll be able to play again, but we are hoping and planning for a mid-January start date for games.
This will all depend on when we are allowed back into the gyms. That will be a decision the school districts make, and when they deem it’s safe to play again. The AYBA fully trusts the decisions that the district makes regarding the current pandemic, and we will continue to follow their lead.
As soon as we have more info and a solid plan to play, we will let everyone know. Until then, stay healthy!
Since the inception of the Agoura Youth Basketball Association many years ago, the focus of the organization has been supporting the kids in our community in learning skills, teamwork and personal growth through the sport of basketball. But, during these times of Covid-19, with the organized playing of basketball not possible, the AYBA is benefiting the kids in the community in any way they can. During these crazy times of the pandemic, that benefit has taken on a completely different form.
With that, the AYBA Board unanimously voted to donate $10,000 to local schools to help make sure none of our kids go hungry.
$5000 went to Las Virgenes Unified School District to offset the costs of the FREE breakfast and lunch program. LVUSD has been offering packaged breakfast and lunch meals for all students, five days a week, from 9am to 12:00pm at the AE Wright Middle School location in Calabasas, where families can pick up daily meals for their children.
AYBA continues its mission to positively affect the community it serves through donations such as this, as well as improvements to various school site and athletic facilities.
An additional $5,000 went to Oak Park Unified School District to fortify their Nutrition Program.
Your students are our players, so on behalf of the entire AYBA Board, we are thrilled that we can help, and thankful for all the people helping to get food to those in need.
On August 10, 2020, AYBA President Drew Fine (not pictured) met up with LVUSD Superintendent Dr. Dan Stepenosky, Assistant Superintendent Karen Kimmel, and staff at AE Wright's kitchen to deliver the donation.
