Good evening Nona Basketball family! Hope you are all doing well, staying safe, and staying warm as the dog days of summer hit. We wanted to give a quick update on news from the Academy!
Open Gym is ALMOST SOLD OUT
Our very first open gym is this Saturday and we have three sessions setup or the different age groups. Many of you have asked about Covid policies and you can see those precautions addressed below. One of the downsides of this is we are limited in the number of kids that can attend each session. We are VERY CLOSE to capacity so if you were wanting to sign your child up — do so ASAP. This is a FREE OPEN GYM on July 18th and we encourage all kids interested in our program to come out and have some fun. All kids in attendance will get a FREE Nona Basketball SHIRT!
PS — we will send another email out when this event has sold out!
Summer Camp Filling Up Fast
Similar to our open gym, our summer camp sessions are filling up very fast. The dates for camp are July 20th-23rd and July 27th-30th! Registration links for these sessions are below and our camp flyer is below that. Covid Precautions will be taken (see below). We have confirmed attendance and instruction from Professional NBA trainers, College and High School coaches, and some of the most experienced youth basketball coaches in Lake Nona.
We have spent a lot of time talking about how we will put in place COVID-19 precautions. Some of the ways are below:
1. Groups must be limited to a certain size.
2. No parents allowed in the Gym area.
3. Kids must bring limited equipment into the Gym.
4. Temperature checks will be taken at the door
5. Equipment will be cleaned and disinfected daily.
6. Sanitizer will be available and applied as needed.
We will do our best to keep a safe environment for all kids.
AAU Tryouts & Elementary Youth League
We are finalizing dates and details for our Nona Basketball Academy AAU and Recreational League teams very soon. Please keep an eye out on our social media and website for these announcements. There will be opportunities for 3rd grade through high school boys & girls to play AAU and recreational basketball. We encourage all skill level players to hold off committing to a team and at least attend our tryouts! It’s our expectation to have several teams at each age level coached by some of the finest basketball minds around. We are excited to bring the next level of basketball teams to the youth of Lake Nona. Tryouts will be free, dates & signup links will be announced very soon!
Aspiring Lake Nona Basketball Coaches
We are actively searching for GREAT youth coaches that have a passion for basketball and doing things the “Nona” way! If you want to learn more about our coaching opportunities and join this family — please email us and we will be in touch.
Congrats to Coach Vic
Congrats to Coach Vic for being hired as the General Manager of Nona Basketball. Many of you know Coach Vic and know he has a huge heart for youth and the game of basketball. He will be a great asset to this program and should be able to help you with ANYTHING you need at Open Gyms, Camps, Tryouts and beyond. Join me in congratulating Coach Vic!
