NEWS from the Ponchatoula Basketball Association Board

2021 PBA Winter Basketball Season

After heartfelt and grueling deliberation, Ponchatoula Basketball Association Board of Directors have decided to cancel our 2021 season.   The obvious obstacle is Covid-19.  As a board, we contemplated every scenario from reducing the season to the number of players on each team and also attendance.  At the end of the day, just one person with Covid-19 entering our gym would shut us down. We understand the schools are playing; however, they are playing games in limited capacity.  Recreation basketball would consist of games on Friday night and all day Saturday which elevates the risk of exposure. This pandemic has created a new world that is controlled by this virus. Until a vaccine has been approved, we cannot create an unsafe environment putting our children, board members, family and friends at risk for infection.   Our hearts are broken but we feel it is our responsibility to keep our league and our community safe by helping to stop the spread of this virus.

LOOK FOR US IN 2022!  Next season we will be back stronger and better!  We will have the use of two gyms and cannot wait to have our Saturdays full of game for our kids ages 5-18.

Please stay safe and we hope to see you next season,

The PBA Board of Directors
