It is with great regret that we have to announce the Premier Health Flyin’ to the Hoop Basketball Invitational will be canceled for the January 15-18, 2021 dates. Although "The show must go on" is in our DNA, this will unfortunately be the first time in 19 years that the event will not take place.
After several conversations with the Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County (OH) Directors, they have highly-recommended that we cancel the annual January event at the Trent Arena for several reasons:
The stay-at-home order has been extended for Montgomery County (OH) until early January and might be extended beyond that;
There will continue to be travel restrictions around the country and having 37 teams from the U.S. & Canada descend upon Dayton for one weekend is not conducive to public health; and
Experts are anticipating another spike in Covid cases a few weeks after the Christmas/New Year’s holiday --- which precisely coincides with the FTTH weekend schedule.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly and we know that this will come as an enormous disappointment to our teams, fans and sponsors … but we feel it’s the appropriate thing to do to keep Public Health first-and-foremost in our minds.
Our Title Sponsor, Premier Health, and their health experts agree with this decision and continue to support us - for which we are thankful.
If you have already purchased your ticket(s) for this year’s event, we are currently working with Eventbrite as to what the protocol will be for refunding your purchase. Thanks for your continued support.
All is not lost however - we are working on another potential basketball event in the late winter/early spring of 2021 to showcase national talent in the Dayton area. Stay tuned to our social media and website for further details as they become available. In the meantime, stay safe … and know that we will back... #FTTH2022.
