Providing Opportunity to Develop Leadership

Real Athletics Official Update: COVID-19 VIRUS 3-16-20

We continue to monitor the seriousness of the COVID-19 Virus as this is uncharted waters for all of us during this time. With everyone's health and safety being our main priority we have decided at Real Athletics to postpone all  basketball events this includes: tryouts, open gyms, practices, and tournaments through April 13th 2020. At this time we will examine the situation and set dates for tryouts. This information will be sent via email, website, and social media.
We have been locked in making phone calls, looking at options and gathering feedback from other club directors in state as well as on a national level. We feel that it's best that tryouts will be postpone and moved to: (We are looking at the dates of April 13th-19th) We will set dates as we gather more information.
Tournament Plan Moving Forward:
  1. We are planning to play tournaments mid-April through late June.  Some teams will have options to play in July as well.  This will all be more clear as we learn more about the COVID-19 Virus.  Its our hope that things settle down soon. 
I want to reiterate our programs commitment to keep every player, and family safe, and to do our part to protect the public health. By delaying tournaments and practices this allows all of us to learn more about the COVID-19 Virus. This also gives us time to plan how the season will look moving forward.
We want to thank everyone for your flexibility during this time as we are navigating through all of this. Real Athletics will continue to keep open communication.  As we continue to monitor the situation will will share/update communication. 
Please follow us on Twitter: @realathletics as well as become a member at our website: we will send out communication through these platforms.
