Spring Rec Season!

 We are set to begin our outdoor rec season next Monday April 5th. We will be running two sessions per week for each of       these groups:

Boys grade 2/3
Boys grade 4/5
Boys grade 6
Boys grade 7/8
Girls grade 2/3/4
Girls grade 5/6
Girls grade 7/8
Sessions are capped at 20 per day. Kids will be playing for the majority of each 45 minute session. Sign up will be going out this weekend for week 1, and it is first come first served. If your child is looking to play we suggest you sign up quickly as we anticipate these will fill up quickly.

A GBL Covid Update

GBL Families,

We hope that you are healthy and safe.  The Covid epidemic has taken many lives in the US, and around the world.  In some sense, it has taken the lives of those who are healthy, by depriving us of doing many of the things that bring us joy, and that bring us together as a community.  While we'd all like to move forward and get back to "living", the way to do that is still unclear- particularly with youth sports.  With that said, we are announcing that Skillz & Drillz camp will not be held this summer.  Coaches Welsh, Demaio & Yerkes are of course disappointed, but they also want to do what's in the best interest of your children.


It remains to be seen what the outcome of "re-opening" the state will be, but we're hopeful that our community will remain healthy, and that a fall resurgence won't set us back.  Regardless of those outcomes, there will be a "new normal" in youth sports that will be designed to minimize health risks, while maximizing fun.  The GBL board is evaluating potential options for our season, and will continue to do so in the weeks ahead.  We know how badly all of the kids want to play, and how important this is to them.  Whatever decision is made, rest assured it will be based on public health guidelines, the recommendations of available experts, and with the understanding that our kids' health comes first.

We welcome your feedback and recommendations.  As a community, we will find a healthy and safe way for our kids to do what they love.


The GBL Board
