Important Covid Update: Please understand that Ponder PALs will NOT be playing at UNT - PEB this year. Due to Covid the UNT campus is unavailable and the Denton Basketball League, that we usually participate with, has cancelled for the season. Ponder Pals will be joining an interlock with the surrounding towns of Sanger, Pilot Point, Tioga, Aubrey, Valley View and Era. This will allow these 7 towns to play each other and still have a basketball season. Please understand this requires more travel for games than we have had to do in the past. Also gym time for practice will be very limited this year as the elementary gym is unavailable for use and all practices will be closed practice. Closed practice means no extra parents or children will be allowed in the gym during scheduled practice time. This is for safety reasons for the players. Please be understanding of the changes that we will have to make this year in order to still have basketball.
For ages 5 through 12 or Kindergarten through Sixth grade that will play in our Ponder PALS team in partnership with the surrounding towns of Sanger, Pilot Point, Tioga, Aubrey, Valley View and Era.
Divisions will be based on the individuals age as of 8/31/2020.
Registration $100.00 and Late Registration $115.
Teams will be assembled primarily based on grade.
Games will start January 2 and all games will be played on Saturday except for the Playoffs which will be on Monday night.
There will be a 7 games regular season and a Playoff Tournament. Games will be in Sanger for the most part. There is the possibility that they may be at any of the other towns participating in the interlock-Sanger, Pilot Point, Tioga, Aubrey, Valley View and Era.
Practice will be determined by the coach and as gym space is allowed.
Closed practices for coaches and players only due to Covid safety concerns. No extra parents or kids will be allowed in the gym.
Covid update: Due to safety regulations and precautions at UNT the Denton League cancelled for the season. Ponder PALs has joined with surrounding towns Sanger, Pilot Point, Aubrey, Valley View, Gainesville, and Era to create a temporary solution where the kids will still get to play basketball this season. Please be patient as we plan how to safely proceed and get this organized.
