UPDATED- TUESDAY, MARCH 24

To further combat the spread of COVID-19, the Knox County Health Department has issued a Safer at Home Order — directing all residents of Knox County stay inside their homes, and immediately limit all movement outside of their homes beyond what is absolutely necessary to take care of essential needs. Until further notice, all businesses not performing essential services have been ordered closed for 14 days beginning at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, March 24.

This announcement has resulted in the following change:

Volcano Practices/Skills: No full team practices until at least Tuesday, April 7th. Could be in different gyms rather than the Knox County School gyms that we were previously in.

UPDATED- Monday, March 23

We know how important basketball development is to each of our athletes! Which is why we are working hard to find ways to keep our athletes active, thinking, engaged, and hopefully having a little fun while doing it.

Beginning Monday, March 23 we will be releasing weekly developmental skill workouts and learning materials that will allow our WBBL and Volcano athletes to keep practicing while also increasing their basketball IQ on some of the most important aspects of the game. Nobody can afford to take a month off of training, and we are doing our best to continue to push you to get better!

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

As of today, March 17th, we are following local and state guidance on the best response to combating this illness and adhering to the guidelines and closures that are being put in place to prevent the spread of this virus. 

We also kindly ask that anyone who becomes a confirmed carrier and positive of the virus reports to us if they have recently attended any of our events.


We will continue to update you on the impact of COVID-19 on our basketball related events. The decision to cancel any future events is now in the hands of our school facilities that we use for development classes and Volcano practices and the tournament directors who continue to make the decision for us as to whether or not to cancel their upcoming tournaments. We plan to resume WBBL Offseason Development and continue with our Volcano season as soon as we are cleared to do so; however, we strongly encourage players, coaches, and family members to continue to stay home from any events if they are ill. 

We want to assure you that our organization takes very seriously the safety and welfare of all the players, coaches, and families involved in our basketball community. We are attempting to make the best decisions possible for each of you, as well as our broader communities. We are committed to playing our part in protecting your health and safety and we appreciate everyone's cooperation and patience as we work to adequately respond to developments with COVID-19. Please stay safe!
