The Laramie Parks & Recreation Department will be canceling the 30th Annual Laramie Youth Basketball Tournament which was scheduled for April 3-5.

In a statement from Jodi Guerin, the Recreation Manager, she said

The tournament has a long-standing history in our community, and we are disappointed to have to cancel. However, the nature of the tournament is that it draws approximately 100 teams from the region and attracts thousands of individuals. That clearly exceeds the potential threshold for large crowds and increases the likelihood that the virus could spread.”

Refunds will begin to be processed next week for participants.

The event is planned to resume again in 2021.
