Selma City Schools Suspends Middle School Basketball Season
(Selma, AL, 09/25/20) Selma City Schools has decided to suspend middle school basketball for the 2020-2021 season. As of now, high school sports and extracurricular activities are still being offered for both fall and spring. Students are still required to complete a student waiver before participating in sports and extracurricular activities. A copy of the student waiver is available on the district website. The district will continue to monitor confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the area for guidance on decisions about future sports activities during school year.
“Looking at the scope of the Middle schools in our area, they were not moving forward with basketball this year so we decided to follow suit. We know our scholar athletes were looking forward to playing this year. We are allowing our 8th graders the opportunity to tryout for the 9th grade basketball team. More information will be provided before tryouts.”-Katasha Turner, Selma City Schools Athletic Director
