Pilot Club Hoop Dreams Special Needs Basketball Season 2021

From a press release from President Beverly Owens:

The membership of Sulphur Springs Pilot Club had hoped to wait till after the first of the year to make this difficult decision, but have received many calls asking about Hoop Dreams basketball.  As you may know, Hoop Dreams Basketball involves many individuals, including Pilot Club members, Lions Club members, Teen Court buddies, and all the players and family members.  Since our most important concern is for the safety of all the players, we would not want to put any of them into harms way of catching the COVID-19 virus.  Most of the players are in the high risk category.  Thus, we feel at this time that we just can’t put all these players at risk.  We always have about 75+ people each week at the gym, that’s just too many in one place for safety, at this time.  The Pilot Club of Sulphur Springs regrettably has decided to not hold Hoop Dreams basketball for the 2021 season.

2021 would be our 14th year for Hoop Dreams and we are all saddened, because the players look forward to it each year. We thank everyone for their enthusiastic support in seasons past.

Please keep us on the calendar for 2022. Because 2021 would have been the 14th year for Hoop Dreams, we believe that there will be a big celebration of 15 years for Hoop Dreams Basketball when 2022 arrives.
