Season Changes due to COVID

Due to ongoing COVID-19 Concerns and Low Player Participation, the Hill Country Hoops Factory Committee has decided to transition from a League to now offer a four-week Skills & Drills Camp for the 2021 Season with an End-Of-Season 3-on-3 Tournament. All players will still receive a 2021 t-shirt for participating in Camp.

 

Marble Falls Girls Head Basketball Coach and Hill Country Hoops Factory Committee member John Berkman said, "Our goal is to create a fun basketball environment for the kids in which they are improving their skill sets at the same time." Deciding to transition the League to a Camp was difficult, but canceling the 2021 program was not an option for the Committee. 

 

Making a change of this magnitude weeks before the season gets underway was not easy for the Hill Country Hoops Factory Committee. Here are a few of the concerns taken into consideration:

  • Lower than anticipated player registrations. Marble Falls player registrations are down over a third of last season. Our Llano Community Teams have decided to sit out the 2021 season due to low participation in their Fall Flag Football Season. 
  • Quarantines have forced Marble Falls Player Evaluations to be postponed once already. We expect this to continue through January and February, potentially causing unexpected game forfeits due to teams not having a coach or enough players to play their scheduled games.
  • UIL district regulations call for high school games to be rescheduled on Saturdays if a District Game is canceled due to COVID-19. Because Saturdays are Hoops Factory game days, rescheduling of MFHS games would limit gym space and make last minute Hoops Factory game cancellations/ rescheduling a near certainty.
  • Marble Falls ISD has implemented COVID-19 Protocols, but Hill Country Hoops Factory does not have the capacity to bring extra staff to monitor gym capacities and clean facilities between games/practices. 

 

While the decision to forgo league play for 2021 was difficult, the Committee is excited about the Camp format and End of Season 3-on-3 Tournament.
