Fort Lee Girls Recreation Basketball League

Hello Basketball Families,

We hope this finds you and your families well. We have been getting some inquiries about the season, but have been holding off as long as possible before sending an email with information. We were hopeful that we would be able to have a 2020-2021 Season, even if it had to be abbreviated.

That being said, after considering the youth sports’ guidelines which were announced this week, we have made a decision. Due to the increase in COVID cases, the inconsistency of school closings, and the strict CDC guidelines, it is with a heavy heart that we must cancel the season.

Obviously, the health and safety of players, coaches, referees, and families is our first priority. We feel that, in this case, the risk is greater than the reward. To that, this is a joint decision between our league and the Fort Lee Boys Basketball League.

On another note, we still have the trophies from last season for Rec. and travel players, as well as retiring coaches’ plaques and community service awards. We are trying to figure out a way to distribute these appropriately.

We truly miss everybody, and hope that you understand our situation. We have faith that we will all be together on the court when the time is right. We are remaining hopeful for a full softball season in the spring. More information will be forthcoming as it is available.

Wishing you all health and a joyous holiday season. May the New Year be better for all.

Stay Well,

Mike Klein
