Mission Statement
The Junior Spartan basketball program exists to provide opportunities to members of the Brookfield East community.  

Junior Spartan Boys Basketball 2020-2021

The Junior Spartan Boys Basketball Program invites you to participate in a traveling team experience offered to boys in grades 3-8 (2020-2021 school year). The Junior Spartan basketball program is a community-based program and registration will open on September 1st.  Each family has important decisions to make regarding their son’s participation in Junior Spartans.  Parents and participants engaging in any opportunity offered by the Junior Spartan Boys basketball program do so with knowledge of the risks involved, including potential exposure to Covid-19.   Please review the Informational Guide below prior to completing the registration process.

Health Guidelines Regarding Covid-19

Please review the following document that outlines the safety guidelines that will be in place for the 2020-2021 Junior Spartan boys basketball season......

Quick Reference: What do I need to participate?

1) Please bring your own water bottle, basketball, and face covering to each practice and skills training session. 

2) Please complete the "Health Check" for each practice and game in TeamSnap.  

 

Face Covering Policy

As we begin the competitive season, I wanted to make sure all families are aware of the face covering guidelines as they pertain to participation in Junior Spartan Boys Basketball.  Please understand that there will not be consistent enforcement of the face covering mandate as we travel to league and tournament games.  With that in mind, here are some points of emphasis moving forward.

1) Athletes must have a face covering in all Elmbrook School District facilities.  This includes during practice and competitive situations.  Please understand that we do enforce this policy and provide scheduled mask breaks outside the facility regularly.  

2) There are multiple facilities that will not be requiring face coverings for athletes that are participating in their event.  We are already aware of league and tournament locations that will not be following the face covering mandate. While the facility will not be enforcing the face covering policy, the Junior Spartan Boys Basketball program is still recommending that athletes wear a face covering.  

We will make every effort to have the lead coaches at your son's respective grade level communicate the rules of the tournament prior to the scheduled event.  If you are uncomfortable with the stated guidelines and want to opt out of participation in the scheduled event, please inform the lead coach immediately so that a replacement can be contacted and provided with the opportunity for participation.  

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we continue to navigate uncharted waters this season.
