The St. Ambrose – Head Start Basketball FUNdamental League is for boys and girls in grades k-2.
The League will be held at the brand new Ambrose Crossing Gym on Saturday mornings beginning on January 9, 2021 and continuing through February 13, 2021.
The program will offer a 60 minute skills training session followed by 30 minutes of 3 on 3 half-court games.
The St. Ambrose – Head Start Basketball FUNdamental League is for the players. Kids need to enjoy the sport to want to improve. Our league’s key focus is FUN! This is an opportunity to develop basketball skills in a fun, low-stress environment. We encourage healthy competition in which kids play hard and play to win but not at the expense of belittling opponents, yelling at officials or displaying poor sportsmanship. We ask that players conduct themselves appropriately and exhibit good sportsmanship. We ask the same of parents and others who come to watch. Adults, please set a good example for the players.
For questions please contact Head Start Basketball Director Mike Klinzing at 216-392-4059 or St. Ambrose Athletic Director Ryan Harrington at firstname.lastname@example.org or 413-320-3472.

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We know this pandemic has been stressful to many and recognize that socializing and interacting with peers can be a healthy way for children to cope with stress and connect with others, particularly after spending quite a bit of time at home.
The health and safety of our campers and staff remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible.
We are cooperating with St. Ambrose Parish as they have intensified cleaning and disinfection practices within their facilities and will continue to do so throughout our program.
Asking parents to drop-off/pick-up their child at the designated start and ending time. Parents will remain outside of the gym at all times.
Keeping campers in small groups of 6 or less and spacing them out during individual skill development sessions. Players will play 3 on 3 games against other players attending the league.
Limiting the number of items that are shared or touched between campers and staff. All campers will be required to bring their own basketball and water. No water will be available at Ambrose Crossing.
Having our staff wear a cloth face covering as feasible and in times when physical distancing is difficult.
If a child does get sick, we have identified an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolate from others until we are able to communicate with parents or caretakers directly.
We ask that you help us protect the health of campers this winter. Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days including staff, campers, and families should not come to camp. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.
If you have a specific question about this plan or COVID-19, please contact Mike Klinzing for more information. You can also find more information about COVID-19 at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus or on CDC website for youth and camps (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/summer-camps.html).
We look forward to seeing you.
Thank you and stay healthy.
