2020 State Basketball Tournament Cancelled

After further consultation and receiving additional guidance from Special Olympics, Inc., we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 State Basketball Tournament and Team Skills Competition scheduled for this weekend in Louisville. The Tournament will not be rescheduled.

We know this is disappointing to all our athletes who have worked so hard and who were so excited to compete this weekend. Trust us, we are disappointed too. Basketball means so much in our state and we know this is an event everyone looks forward to. However, our primary concern is and always will be everyone’s health and safety, and we know that we serve an often medically vulnerable population. With that in mind, we couldn’t justify going ahead with the Tournament.

We will assess future events in the next one to two weeks and we hope to see everybody at swim meets and Area Track and Field Competitions soon.

If you have any questions about the cancellation, contact Hunter Brislin at 502-695-8222 or hbrislin@soky.org.
