Jamboree Teams,

We have been monitoring the COVID – 19 information closely and monitoring the situation in our local region. We have also consulted with the latest appropriate county health information.  As of this time, they are not requiring businesses to close.  While a limited number of school districts have made the decision to have students stay home many remain open and are following normal operations.

As an abundance of caution, given the number of people that would be attending the 8U Jamboree at one time we have decided to cancel the event this weekend.  We appreciate all the volunteers time that went into planning and organizing the Jamboree and are very disappointed that it will not be held.  Thank you to all of the 8U parents and families for a great season and we look forward to seeing you all next season.

We will be refunding all team entry fees due to this cancellation. I have already let our hotel representative know that we will be cancelling the event. 

Below are some guidelines from the CDC for you to follow:

  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. Note: We have added hand sanitizers in key locations within the arenas so please feel free to use them. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wipe down your cell phone routinely.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow/arm, not your hands. Wash your hands afterwards.
  • Consider boosting your immunity by eating vitamin-C rich foods, getting enough vitamin D, etc. Emergen-C is also available in the kitchen.

If You’re Sick or Someone You Live With is Sick

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • If you have a sick family member or roommate at home with COVID-19 refer to CDC guidance for how to conduct a risk assessment of potential exposure.

Please let me know if you have any questions. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
