We are seeking Sponsors of Waxhaw Basketball for the 2021/2022 Season. We offer multiple levels of sponsorship to be involved with our sport and help us offset some of our costs while giving our players the best experience we can each season. We are a Once-per-Year sport but we have costs that continue throughout the year. Your support helps us tremendously! We thank you.
Our highest priority remains the safety and well-being of our athletes during basketball activities. These suggestions are developed based on the recommendation of the CDC and the NC Health and Human Services. As the only indoor sport for Waxhaw Athletic Association, we should do our best to limit the spread of any potential contagion.
As a member of the Union County Basketball Committee, Waxhaw Basketball will join its partners in recognizing UCPS guidelines.
Currently, MASKS ARE NOT REQUIRED but STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
Please see the Union County Department of Health recommendations for indoor gatherings and NC DHHS' designation of children (ages 5 - 11), since they are not able to be vaccinated, as a higher risk group.
"The CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings, like on public and mass transportation, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people. Growing evidence shows that cloth face coverings or masks, when worn consistently, can decrease the spread of COVID-19, especially among people who are not yet showing symptoms of the virus."
"Union County doesn’t have a county-wide mask mandate, however it is recommended in public indoor settings. Adults can make choices to limit their movements throughout the county. They can choose not to go to restaurants, stores, etc. All adults have had the opportunity to receive a vaccine since the Spring. On the other hand, we want our kids learning in classrooms, which are indoor, state-mandated, in-person gatherings which can pose a high risk of serious illness for some teachers and staff who are older, or for anyone who might have immunocompromising conditions. And, many students are not yet eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine due to their age. Those factors make it a high-risk environment for the spread of any communicable disease and particularly the Delta variant of COVID we are battling right now."
RECOMMENDED to wear a mask at all times while indoors
