Covid19 update

Thank you for your patience and interest with regards to the delayed return of basketball in our club. The club committee have been working in the background to finalise Covid19 guidelines for the safe return to training and to arrange training venues for all age groups in our club.

Plans were made to potentially restart training in early October and to get registration for existing up and running in the next few days.

However, with the current increase of Covid19 cases in our community, a decision has been made to delay this for a few more weeks. We understand that our members are eager to get back to training, but we need to prioritise the health and safety of everyone.

Hopefully, we can work together to reduce the transmission of the virus within our county and we can once again get back to our fun-filled basketball sessions.

Appreciation Award – Gerry Hannon

Gerry has been involved with Letterkenny Blaze Basketball since it was founded in 1999. Gerry has mentored and supported all of our younger referees and table officials both in Letterkenny Blaze and elsewhere.  His help and advice has been invaluable to them as they have developed in their role. As a referee, he has always been professional and fair. As well as sharing his wealth of knowledge with developing referees, he also helps and advises younger players and coaches in the rules of the game. His enthusiasm for the game of basketball always shines through  –  a true gentleman.
