(Neb)-CSC Hoop Shoot Youth Basketball Tournament Cancelled

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/16/2020 06:57 PM
CHADRON, Neb. -- As part of the ongoing effort to guard against the spread of COVID-19, Chadron State College has canceled its Hoop Shoot youth basketball tournament March 27-29.

The CSC athletic department staff will work to issue full refunds at the earliest convenience. Basketball coaching staff are already in contact with the coaches of the youth teams.

The decision to cancel the Hoop Shoot is based on the coronavirus outbreak.

The first case of community transmission of COVID-19 in Nebraska led to the voluntary closing of all public schools in the Panhandle for 2 weeks, Chadron State has cancelled all spring sports, and Gov Pete Ricketts on Monday adopted the latest CDC recommendation to limit public gatherings to no more than 10 individuals.

In addition, new NCAA regulations prevent coaches from in-person contact with prospective student-athletes until April 15.
