Dear Silver Knight Parents, Players and Coaches:
The York South Silver Knights Basketball Club hope you and your family have been having a safe and enjoyable summer. With the gradual reopening of athletic activities and the loosening of restrictions, we here at the club are preparing for a return to our house league and Rep programming in the Fall of 2021.
Please see the attached document for more information.
YSSK Letter to Parents-Fall 2021
Mandatory Covid-19 Vaccination Policy:
Dear Silver Knights Family,
It has come to our attention that all sports facilities, including Township Community Gym Facilities in York Region are mandated to have all participants 12 and up fully vaccinated. Further, in order to participate in sports at the high school level in York Region athletes and coaches participating must have proof of both doses of vaccination.
Silver Knights Basketball has historically always been one of the finest leaders in Ontario Basketball for prioritizing the health, safety and wellness of our children and youth first and foremost in all decision making. Hence, we are judiciously following the prudent guidelines outlined in York Region, by stating that all hoopsters 12 years and older, and all of our esteemed coaches and support staff must be fully vaccinated in order to participate in any of YSSK’s basketball programs.
We hope that we will be able to initiate our iconic programs which our players and parents love so fondly as soon as possible. At present we have little knowledge unfortunately of when our house league and rep programs will start, as no board facility permits have been provided to any sports organization. We thus encourage those hoopsters 12 and up, who are not yet vaccinated, who desire to participate, to become fully vaccinated as soon as possible.
Your Silver Knights Basketball Directors,
Raoul A. Baumgartner
