The Friday, Feb 19 Kindergarten boys basketball games scheduled for tonight have been cancelled due to a busted pipe at Pioneer Mesquite and weather conditions.  We are playing all basketball games for Saturday, Feb 20 and Sunday, Feb 21.  For those playing at Ridgewood Methodist Church and Dallas Lutheran be aware there may not be restrooms available because of pipes bursting during the week.    


SVAA is looking for umpires for our baseball and softball leagues.  You must be at least 14 years old and have some knowledge of the game. Please email or call our office if you are interested. 



Update 1/7/2021

               As you know by now, all games for all grades begin this weekend, January 9. We continue to be unable to provide enough space for practice.  RISD informs us that they remain unwilling to open their facilities to any outside organization, including SVAA.  RISD plans to revisit it’s position yet again in early February.  We understand RISD desire to be as careful as possible and their concern that allowing SVAA into their facilities means that they would also have to open their doors to other groups.  More news on the practice front as we learn more from RISD. 

            Remember, there are strict spectator restrictions at each location with a player, coach and spectator check-in process.  If you have any questions, check with your coach as they have been informed of the specific restrictions at the facility you will be using for games. Referees have been instructed that no game will occur if there is a violation of those guidelines.  SVAA appreciates your compliance with its COVID related guidelines. 

                Let’s have a great basketball season!

Update 12/17/2020

                Good news.  SVAA has located enough gymnasiums to ensure that all grade levels will begin to play games on January 9, 2021.  We will be utilizing facilities at churches, private schools, recreation centers, and health clubs.  Expect to hear from your coach the location that will be used for your individual team.  We have not yet located enough space to provide practice times, but we will be talking with RISD again in early January to see if they will open up their facilities for our practices.  More news on the practice front as we learn more from RISD.  First grade and kindergarten grade levels will have an abbreviated practice time prior to the start of their games as we have done in prior years. There will be spectator restrictions at each location with a player, coach and spectator check-in process. Your coach will provide more information and procedures. 

                We hope you each have a great Holiday Season and we look forward to starting games on January 9.

                      Richardson Independent School District informed us this morning that they will not rent any facilities for indoor activities in December.  We understand the challenges RISD is facing and know this was a difficult step to take.  No decision has been made for subsequent months.  Based on our conversations with RISD, we expect to have additional guidance by early December.  RISD will continue to monitor COVID-19 numbers in their school district and base its decisions on the trend lines of those numbers.  Until we learn more, we are placing the Basketball program on hold.  There will be no basketball activities in December.  We apologize for any inconvenience that the delay may cause you and your children.  Our program uses over 20 RISD gymnasiums and is very dependent on access to those facilities. We will provide you with additional information as soon as we have more to report.  Thanks for your patience.

Monday - July 27, 2020

            The Spring Valley Athletic Association continues to monitor the evolving developments surrounding COVID-19, including the guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments.  SVAA completed its delayed Srping Season Sports in June and July by adopting guidelines for parents, officials, and players to follow. 

            SVAA plans to follow the same approach for its Fall Sports.  You will find the the guidelines SVAA has developed for Football (tackle, flag, and 7v7), volleyball, basketball and baseball HERE

             As Govenor Abbott noted in his guidelines for youth sports operators and families, COVID-19 has not left our community and can be easily spread from person to person. While we have designed processes to help reduce the possibility of the spread of the virus, there is not guarantee those processes will be completely effective.  Anyone electing to participate must realize that the risk of COVID-19 infection exists.  Since the disease may be spread by those without symptoms, the possibility of spread to others is high, certaianly when compared to sheltering in place.  Please review the checklists for Youth Sports Operators and Youth Sports Families issued by the Govenor on May 18 and executive order GA-29 issued on July 2.

          SVAA appreciates your patience and understanding during what continues to be an unusual time for all of us.
