We are NOT taking entries at this time. (MYAS office is also currently closed)
The DAYBA Board is waiting to see how the reopening of the State affects things.
Many things will affect our final decision. (not all listed)
Is it safe for players, fans, and everyone connected with the event?
The entry fee would be very high to hold a tournament without fans.
Will there be a facility that will allow a tournament?
Will there be referees available?
Will parents and players want to travel to Duluth for a tournament?
Will there be a vaccination that is effective and safe?
Hopefully, in the next couple of months, we will be able to make a more informed decision. The CDC, State government, MYAS, and local authorities should start putting out guidelines.
Every November, DAYBA hosts the Spirit of the North Basketball Tournament.
