2020-21 Season Plans / COVID Status Update

2020-21 Season Plans / COVID-19 Update

Typically this time of the year we would be conducting skills sessions, mini-camps and open gyms in preparation for tryouts in late August for our winter season but we all know and understand we are chartering different waters now.  With the recent COVID restrictions (updated 7/13/20) in California and specific to Sacramento County – the Vista Talons program will remain “on-hold” for our 2020-21 season plans. 


What we do know:  We know that indoor sports programs/teams cannot use Folsom-Cordova school indoor facilities.  This is indefinite through the summer and possibly until fall sports have completed (assuming they happen).


What we can anticipate:  The Vista Talons Basketball program will remain adaptive and ready to adjust plans, policies and procedures that align with local & state guidelines.  Health and safety for our players, families, coaches & board members will always be our #1 priority! 


When will tryouts be conducted for the winter season:  There is a strong potential for tryouts to be moved back from late August to September or October!  It’s even possible we’ll move tryouts out until January – it all depends on when our local officials give the okay for return to play and when the City of Folsom opens basketball facilities back up for City Youth Sports Leagues (CYSLs) such as our Talons program.

Return to school plans and return to play for fall sports will both play a role in how/when winter sports can begin to plan their respective seasons. 


Alternative options we’ll consider:  Our Talons program will look at alternative locations and alternative “play/development” options that comply with local and state COVID requirements.  Again, health & safety is our #1 priority but we also understand the importance of social, mental and physical wellness of our student-athletes. 


How to stay informed: Continue to check the VistaTalons.com website for news and updates.  Follow the Vista Talons social media outlets on Instagram (vistatalons) or Facebook (Vista Talons Basketball).


On behalf of our Vista Talons Board Members and Coaching Staff – we remain steadfast & optimistic that we’ll have a season!  Fingers crossed and stay tuned for more updates coming in the near future!


Thank You,

Brian Murray
