COVID Safety Information

The SBC team was thrilled at Gov. Wolf's recent announcement to re-open youth sports across the state!  We are moving full-steam ahead with plans for our 2021 State Tournament, and collaborating with our venues to ensure our event aligns with local safety measures.

Please read below for what to expect at our venues this year.  We are monitoring the regulations for youth sports in Pennsylvania, and will update this page with any new changes.

What to expect at our venues

All teams can expect to play games at C3 Sports and Nittany Valley Sports Centre.


C3 SPORTS - State College, PA

  • Admissions Policy. To minimize crowds and help us comply with the building and local health ordinances, we are limiting admissions to 3 spectators per athlete. We encourage coaches and families to communicate ahead of time to ensure your group does not exceed spectator limits.
  • Tickets. There will be no onsite ticket sales; all spectator tickets must be pre-purchased on our secure ticketing website. Audience numbers will be tracked to ensure we do not exceed building capacity.  Click here to buy tickets.
  • Game transitions. After each game, all teams and families must exit the gym before subsequent teams enter the gym. We will have staggered game times & holding areas outside the facilities to facilitate transition between games.
  • Masks. Masks will be required at all times for all attendees at the event, including athletes on the court. This will reduce any confusion and provide a standard of expectation for everyone in attendance. With teams from a variety of cities attending the event, it is for the safety of all that we take this conservative approach.
    • If you do not want to wear a mask properly, feel uncomfortable wearing a mask, or have a condition that prevents you from wearing a mask: Please do not attend. The tournament is a private event and attendance is voluntary. By choosing to attend, you are agreeing to follow all policies. There are no exceptions to our rules or policies.  

*All venue and spectator rules are subject to change based on local health guidelines.*
