Youth Basketball Skills Clinic
Although we cannot offer our traditional basketball program this winter, we are excited to offer a Youth Basketball Skills Clinic! This program will allow athletes to safely participate, stay active, and continue learning the game of basketball, through individual drills and activities. Emphasis will be placed on developing skills and having fun, while maintaining a safe environment for all.
The clinics are all coed and will meet once a week between November 30 and December 17 on the following nights:
9598 7-8 years-old: Monday 5:00pm – 6:00pm
9599 9-10 years-old: Monday 6:15pm – 7:15pm
9600 11-12 years old: Thursday 5:00pm – 6:00pm
9601 13-15 years old: Thursday 6:15pm – 7:15pm
All sessions will take place at the Apex Community Center and will be limited to 15 participants.
The cost is $70 for Apex residents and $85 for non-residents.
To keep participants safe and stay within the Governor’s guidelines, we will work in small groups that will be appropriately spaced out. We ask that you bring your own basketball and will be required to wear a face covering at all times, even while actively training. Spectators will be limited to one (1) per family, must wear a face covering, and sit in designated spots indicated in the gym. Participants in the 6:15pm clinic will be asked to wait outside until the start of their program to allow time for the first group to completely exit the building and the gym to be cleaned.

We hope you’ll join us this winter. Stay tuned for announcements about additional athletic programs and clinics being offered by Apex Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources after the holidays!
Winter 2020 Season
After careful consideration, the Town of Apex has made the difficult decision to cancel our youth and adult basketball seasons this winter. This decision was made after reviewing the NC Department of Health and Human Services’ guidance for youth sports, the Governor’s guidelines for indoor gathering capacities, as well as consultation with neighboring communities about their plans for offering basketball leagues. Basketball league play is still considered a high-risk activity for COVID-19 transmission, and we did not feel we could safely offer an indoor, competitive program. Another factor was the 3 middle school gyms that we normally use for practices and games were not available to use.
Since we are not able to hold leagues this winter, we are working on some exciting plans for alternative basketball programs. Hopefully beginning in a few weeks, we’ll be offering instructional clinics, skills competitions, and possibly other opportunities for individuals and families to use our gyms in a safe manner. We will be sending out more information very soon so stay tuned for about these options.
Although we are disappointed our basketball program won’t be the same this year, we’re excited to do what we can to keep everyone active throughout the winter. We look forward to seeing everyone soon and can’t wait to get back to offering even more programs for the Apex community!
