2020-2021 SEASON UPDATE 9/24

First of all, on behalf of the TRBL Board, we sincerely hope your family is staying safe and doing well.

We wanted to provide an update regarding TRBL’s plans for the 2020-2021 season.  The decisions that have made have not been easy.  Considerable time and effort has been spent talking to the school administration, parents and our youth basketball organization neighbors in an effort to balance the safety and well-being of participants and their families to the opportunity for our youth to participate in an activity so many enjoy.  Please read below for and update on the recreation divisions and travel program. 

The recreation division is canceled for this season.  In conjunction with our ongoing partnership with the school district, TRBL will be unable to use school facilities this season as we have in the past.  Most all neighboring school districts are the same.  We will be planning to have basketball skills clinics at local facilities in January-February.  All safety protocols will be closely followed to ensure safety of all and Information and updates to this will be provided at a later time.

Travel Program – Due to access to local facilities, we are planning to have travel teams in grades 3-6 for boys and 5-6 for girls.  We also plan to have a 4th grade girls tournament team as we have in the past.  This also falls in line with many of our neighboring communities.  Information on coach’s application and interview process as well as tryouts will be sent out this weekend with tryouts to be conducted the week of October 12.  Please note the following:

  1. While we are moving forward at this time, we will be closely monitoring the day to day situation and will pause if necessary with safety as the top priority. 
  2. Tryouts: open to all Twinsburg residents children.  Interested players will need to sign-up (no cost to tryout) to attend.  Sign up will be provided this weekend.
  3. Cost: In this current situation, we are working to keep the cost as low as possible and will work together to ensure cost is not a barrier to participate for all that want to try out and make the team.
  4. Season format: While we will plan to follow the same format from prior years, we will be assessing information that we are receiving on a daily basis to evaluate what leagues, tournaments and practice schedules are best suited for our teams.  Our goal is to provide the opportunity to play within a modified format that keeps safety the top priority and cost as low as possible.
  5. More information will be provided in the next several days.

Lindsay’s Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes

Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.53103707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect in 2017.

In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.

What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, cutting off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs.  Sudden cardiac arrest is fatal if not treated immediately, most often by a defibrillator.

Who is Lindsay?

Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition.
