2020-21 Season Plans / COVID-19 Update (last updated on 8/13/20)

 

Vista Talons Players & Families (past and future),

Hello!  I hope you all are doing well and figuring out life the best way possible as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.  I miss seeing all of you and I wish I was emailing to talk about tryouts in a couple of weeks.  My last update a few weeks ago in the email blast I sent to all Talons families – I mentioned that tryouts would likely be pushed out until September, October… maybe even as far out as January.  Since that last update – we have more information and a new set of tentative plans.   Our Talons Board Members recently met and we have agreed to the following tentative plans.

 

What We Know Now:

  • FCUSD schools are back in session with distance learning
  • CIF Sac-Joaquin Section has released the tentative plan for high school sports
    • VHS basketball (boys & girls) limited or out-of-season from 12/7 – 2/21, practice begins on 2/22, games from 3/1 to 5/28
  • Highly probable that Folsom Athletic Association (FAA) and FCUSD will not allow City Youth Sports Leagues (like Talons for example) to use indoor FCUSD facilities in 2020
    • Elementary, middle and high schools
  • Vista Talons Boys basketball will not conduct tryouts until December (at the earliest)

 

Tentative Talons 2020-21 Season Plans:

  • Offer (2) seasons with independent flat rate pricing
    • Season-1 (January through mid-March)
    • Season-2 (mid-March through May)
  • Conduct 2-days of tryouts for all grade levels in mid-December at non-FCUSD facility for Season-1
  • Conduct 2-days of tryouts for all grade levels in early-March at facility (TBD) for Season-2
  • Talons practices likely at non-FCUSD facilities January through February and possibly through May
    •  Talons leadership currently working on securing court time for tryouts and practices
    • Will likely have practices on Monday’s & Friday’s at non-FCUSD facility
    • Practice example:  Mon/Fri  5:30-7:00pm (3rd, 4th, 5th grade), 7:00-8:30pm (6th, 7th, 8th grade), using (3) courts
  • NOTE:  All tentative plans are subject to change due to COVID restrictions (for better or worse) set by the state, county and/or district level.  Safety for all personnel (players, coaches, parents, administrators, etc) will be our top priority.  These tentative plans will be adjusted as necessary but they are targets for all of us to strive for in the meantime.  I think we can all agree that our youth need these physical and social outlets not to mention improve their skillsets for their basketball future!

 

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).

 

Be safe, be well and I sincerely hope we see each other on the hardwood sooner than later!!!

 

Thank You,

Brian Murray

President / Coach
