Start of GOYA Boys Basketball

Dear Annunciation Family,


We hope this letter finds you healthy and safe during these challenging times. With God's grace, our world is beginning to shed the darkness and move to brighter days. We can see there is an important need to get our youth back to Church and in its Ministries. With the help of local/state authorities, and our Metropolis, we are taking every precaution to keep our youth safe.


Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we announce an additional opening of our Youth Ministry Programs by introducing the start of basketball clinics for GOYA-aged boys.  As we begin to come together, we kindly ask that all who participate follow the safety protocols and procedures set forth specifically for our Annunciation parish.  Please reference the following safety procedures below:


COVID-19 Safety Procedures

-Anyone entering a Youth Ministry program will have their temperature checked with non-contact forehead thermometers.

-Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be allowed to participate.

-When possible, we must social distance.

-Masks must be worn at all times (when eating/drinking, masks may be removed if socially distanced).

-Hand sanitizing will be required upon entering, during, and leaving any Youth Ministry program.

-No parents or spectators will be allowed in the gym during sessions.

-If you have been exposed to a positive COVID-19 case, please stay home and quarantine.
