2020-2021 SCVAA Basketball Registration

2020-2021 SCVAA Kindergarten-12th Grade Basketball has been cancelled. 

Update December 28th:

Due to a number of different factors: high current covid Infection numbers, loss of 25% of previously registered players and coaches, a shortage of referees...etc., it is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to cancel the basketball season this year due to Covid-19.  This decision was not an easy one, as we were hoping to be able to give the kids at least some sense of normalcy during this crazy year.  In the last couple of weeks we have had more cancellations than expected, now over 25%, and we are also continuing to receive requests on a daily basis.  This is making the process to make teams difficult considering many of the cancellations were people that volunteered to coach. We were truly hoping to have a season this year, but with the number of kids that are withdrawing, it is making it extremely difficult.

We will be working on getting full refunds, less a $5 or $10 service fee (depending on original registration fee amount) to cover the original credit card processing fee, envelope, check blank, stamp...etc. out over the next few weeks. You do not need to do anything to receive a refund. All refunds will be in the form of a check mailed to the address on file when registered.  Please note: We are not able to move registration fees from one sport to another or issue credits on credit cards. This process will take 2-4 weeks to complete so we appreciate your patience.

We understand that this may not be the most popular decision, however we do feel it is the correct one. We will always prioritize safety over everything else. With the high rate of infections expected to last through January and since we have already lost two months of the season, time is running out to have any type of safe or meaningful basketball program this year.

We look forward to hopefully having a normal 2021-2022 basketball season.

Update November 20th:

With the latest MN. Executive Order pausing all youth and High School Sports, Basketball Registration has been paused. We will resume registration in Jan. if the situation allows? If there is no basketball season this year, refunds will be automatically issued. If there is a season and you do not want to participate, please follow the procedures listed on the Policies/Refunds Tab under our General Section.  We are hopeful we will still be able to have a basketball season starting in Jan. and running into March but we will only do so if we feel we can procede safely.

On-line registration is the preferred method of signing up for VAA Programs and ensures the timing and confirmation of your registration.

There will be a $20 late fee assessed to all 2nd.-12th.  grade registrations received after the Oct. 24th. deadline.  Late registrants may also be placed on

teams on a space-available basis. Late registrants will only be accepted if there is room on a team. Late Registration will remain open until teams are filled.

There will be numerous safety protocols added for the 2020-2021 season.  

 All participants will need to provide their own basketball and face mask.

 There will be a $20 late fee assessed to all 2nd.-12th.  grade registrations received after the above deadlines.  Late registrants may also be placed on teams on a space-available basis. Late registrants will only be accepted if there is room on a team. Late Registration will remain open until teams are filled.

As usual, we attempt to place students from the same school together wherever possible. This year we are limiting teams to a maximum of 12 players. This will make it more common to have teams comprised of students from multiple schools. We do take geographic locations into account when forming combined teams. On-time registrations will be given priority when assigning players to the team of their choice.

We strongly urge parents to be open minded about allowing their children to play with students from other schools. Many strong relationships have been created by these situations, if not immediately, often in later grades.
