The Georgia Kings Basketball 2021 AAU/YBOA season has been on “hold” since last fall as we assessed COVID-19 cases and the impact the pandemic has had on the availability of gyms. The safety of our players, coaches, and parents remains our #1 priority. Given the continued increase in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and even deaths in Cobb County, Georgia Kings Management does not believe it is in our best interest to risk exposing our players under these circumstances. For that reason, we have decided to cancel the 2021 season.
We certainly realize that several area AAU travel basketball teams are having tryouts and moving forward with their season. However, as an organization, we believe it is more prudent to err on the side of safety, and we cannot in good faith ask or encourage you to allow your son to participate in in-person practice and games until we see significant improvement.
In the meanwhile, we are in the process of developing a new virtual skills training program that you will be able to utilize to improve your basketball skills. While this new program is in the early stages of development, we hope to provide preliminary details in the next few weeks. We will be sure to keep you posted.
We will begin planning for the 2022 AAU/YBOA season in late August 2021 and should be able to provide you with more information in September. Please feel free to reach out to anyone on the Georgia Kings staff or check our website as we get closer to that date. Hoping you and your family continue to stay safe!
