Howell Basketball Club continues to monitor the very regular developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic while assessing our options for proceeding with the Howell Hawks Travel Program and/or the HBC Rec Program at some point during the 2020-21 season.  As of the date of this post (8/14/20) the NJ Department of Health’s position continues to be as follows:

“Contact practices and competitions for Medium and High Risk sports (including basketball) are permitted in outdoor settings only. Contact practices and competitions for Medium and High Risk sports remain prohibited in indoor settings.” (https://nj.gov/health/cd/documents/topics/NCOV/COVID_GuidanceForSportsActivities.pdf).

Should these restrictions change, HBC will further evaluate prospects for basketball in some form.  Updates will be posted to our website (www.howellbasketballclub.org) as and when they are available. Please be safe in these challenging times as we hope to see you back on the court again soon!
