RCYBA is volunteer based non-profit sports association established to provide a fun, fair and safe basketball environment. RCYBA’s focus is to advance youth basketball in the City of Rochester through the teaching of basketball fundamentals, foster respect for others, build self-confidence, develop leadership, and promote teamwork in Rochester Student athletes.
RCYBA is required to use the current guidelines from Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) for the content of our COVID Plan. MYAS has a Covid Task Force that is working with the MDH and the Governor's Covid Task Force to develop a set of requirements that will allow youth basketball to continue playing this season. RCYBA is part of MYAS's Covid Task Force. and is in constant communications with MYAS regarding new requirements. The plan will allow us to return in a safe and healthy way, but in order for this to happen we need ALL parents, coaches and players to follow our approved COVID Plan. Please make sure you have read and understand the RCYBA COVID Plan.
Please keep in mind that ultimately the facility owner's (RPS, RCTC, NVC) COVID-19 plan will override any plan that RCYBA develops.
1) Masks are now required to be worn at all times during practice and games.
2) Spectators are permitted for games. Limits will be established by each facility. Spectators are not permitted in practices.
3) There will be a mandatory education package - coming soon.
4) Tournaments can start January 14th.
All of the above changes came from the Minnesota of Department of Health. These changes are currently being evaluated through the MYAS/MYBA Covid task force and constantly changing and we notify you of any additional changes.
