Family,

We regret to inform you that Second to None the 2020 season is cancelled. This is a decision we have not made lightly. We have prayerfully considered our options and determined this is in the best interest of our athletes. COVID 19 has an impact on all of our lives. With the Virginia “Stay at Home” order we will be unable to train as a team until June 2020.

We will issue full refunds minus the $16.00 for the AAU card. We will use the address you provided on your registration forms. If you would like your check sent to a different address; if your athlete received a new uniform or if you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact Coach Paulette.

We are prayerful that we will be able to resume normal operations for the 2021 season and we pray that you will join us,

Stay safe. Take care of yourself and your family.

AAU UPDATE

On March 25, 2020 the AAU posted the following: The AAU has decided to extend the temporary suspension of licensed AAU events through April 15th.

The health and well-being of athletes, coaches, and their families is always the AAU’s top priority. Along with the rest of the world, we have continued to closely monitor the developing COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) situation.

After reviewing the latest CDC guidelines and in consultation with local officials, the AAU has decided to extend the temporary suspension of licensed AAU events through April 15th. This is a decision that the AAU organization did not make lightly but one we strongly feel is in the best interest of everyone involved in AAU events.

These are unprecedented times that have called for unprecedented measures. Nonetheless, we know this is the right decision. We must continue to do our part to keep our communities safe and healthy until such a time that we resume AAU event programing. It is truly our hope that we can get back to running AAU events in the very near future after this extension. We will continue to consult with local officials and health experts to ensure that the safety of AAU athletes, coaches, and their families is not compromised.

Since 1888, the AAU has been the industry leader in the amateur sports marketplace. Moving forward, we remain committed to providing the very best athletic opportunities to all who play AAU sports and will continue to provide updates as additional information becomes available. Thank you for your continued participation in AAU.

We will continue to monitor and make a decision about how we will proceed with the remainder of the season.

Practice Update

Family,

Although we have received guidance regarding practice not being suspended by Mr. William Moore the AAU Region 5 Track and Field District Sports Director, we have decided to continue to suspend practice until Thursday, April 2nd. This decision was made to ensure that we continue to protect our athletes and family during this crisis. May the Lord continue to keep you and your family safe.

The attached workout should be included this week to the previous posted mileage and hills posted last week.

The document HOME_WORK_WORKOUT_5-17-18.pptx was attached to this post.

Practice Guidance Update!

Posted by Kenneth Williams at Mar 20, 2020 7:19AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

We recently received more guidance from Mr. William Moore the AAU Region 5 Track and Field District Sports Director. He informed us that Practice, although not a sanctioned event, is not suspended but must adhere to the 10 person mandate imposed by government. I will wait until Sunday to send out information regarding resuming practice to ensure that nothing else Statewide or locally comes out that may conflict with this guidance.
