ASAA cancels state basketball tournament

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Alaska School Activities Association is announcing the cancelation of the 2020 State Basketball and Cheer Championships.

    ASAA released the following statement:

    "ASAA agrees with the State of Alaska’s assessment that our best course of action in dealing with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), is to slow down the statewide spreading of the virus. 

    One of the ways to mitigate the spread is to not have large statewide gatherings. 

    March Madness Alaska is possibly the largest statewide gathering each year and ASAA would not be acting responsibly if we were to host this year’s event."
