Dear (parents of) Basketball players,
Unfortunately 2020 has been heavily influenced by the COVID-19 virus and the board has had to take several measures in order to follow regulation. Because of these necessary measures the contribution has just now been mailed to you.
This year we continued to train regularly in the holiday to be able to make a good start with the 20/21 season.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has once again shut down the competition.
We assume, and the NBB has confirmed up and till today, that the competition will still be fully played, albeit ending at a later date in 2021.
The teams have already played 4 or 5 games and MBCA will continue to facilitate the training as much as possible, also for 18 years and older.
Financially this means for MBCA that about 25% of the seasonal costs have been incurred. As s the intention is to play the remainder of the competition, MBCA will have all costs for the season and some extra for the protocol that has and will be taken into account.
Much to our regret, all subsidies offered are not applicable to MBCA, however we are still seeking compensation from the municipality, AmstelveenSport and the NBB.
Because we understand that the members might also suffer the consequences of COVID-19, we offer everyone the opportunity to pay the contribution in 4 quarters. MBCA requests to state the invoice number in the description field of the banktransfer. The dates for these quarterly (25%)) payments are: 1st before December 20th, 2nd before Februari 20th, 3rd before April 20th and the 4th before June 20th.
We like to thank those members that already have paid their dues for the 20/21 season. It has been and is of vital meaning to MBCA.
Stay safe and keep yourself in shape with basketball, looking forward to see you again watching the games together,
What do I see on my contribution statement 2020-2021?
You will find two or more lines on your contribution statement.
MBCA wants to be transparent by showing you what you pay for.
This could be playing in a (higher) competition, training more often, resulting in higher costs for MBCA resulting in a higher contribution for yourself.
MBCA wants anyone to experience Basketball according to his/her ambition level, resulting in a contribution geared towards use.
