Last week, UDJAA met with the UD School District regarding the status of Winter Basketball and use of district facilities. We were told that Winter sports for outside user groups had not yet been discussed by the UDSD Board of Directors. Hopefully, we will have more information in the next few weeks and we will send another update.
It is our hope that we will have UDJAA Winter Travel & Intramural Basketball, as well as Cheerleading, this season. We will continue to provide updates and registration information as soon as it is available. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
