Dear WBBA Families,
Thank you for your continued support of the Wayzata Boys Basketball Association. I am reaching out today to make you aware that the City of Plymouth has begun to explore a potential renovation of the Plymouth Creek Center. This project is in the early planning stages and the WBBA has been in close contact with city officials to better understand if this project could provide additional gym space for our program. As the plans sit today, there will only be one gym within the renovated Plymouth Creek Center.
As the population within the Wayzata School District has soared over the past several years, so has the number of kids registering to play winter sports, including boys' basketball. Each year the WBBA works diligently to make sure every child who registers to play basketball gets that opportunity, which has been increasingly difficult with the current gym space available within our district. Thankfully each year in collaboration with the Wayzata School District, we have always secured the needed gym space, and for the near future we believe that will continue.
As we seek out more long-term gym space solutions, we have decided to collaborate with the Wayzata Girls Basketball Association to make sure any and all options can be explored. We are both committed to finding a long-term solution, but to do so we will need your help in amplifying our message to the City of Plymouth and its city council. Our hope is the City of Plymouth will consider making gym space a priority within this project and potentially add 4-6 basketball courts to the Plymouth Creek Center.
As we work together with the WGBA and the City of Plymouth, we ask that you visit the Plymouth Creek Center project website and let them know you support the project including 4-6 basketball courts. To do so, please visit http://www.plymouthmn.gov/departments/parks-recreation/plymouth-creek-center/plymouth-creek-center-project.
Thank you for your help in this matter, I will continue to update you on the progress we make with the City of Plymouth and our quest for a long-term gym space solution.
Jake Vernon, WBBA President
