Covid-19 Information

After careful consideration and taking a proactive approach, the PGCBGC has decided to suspend all PGCBGC related activities and events indefinitely, this includes the upcoming 2020 PGCBGC Basketball Playoffs scheduled for (3/14, 3/15, and 3/21), all PGCBGC practices and the 2020 Spring sports activities. We hope to resume these activities as soon as positive steps have been confirmed to move forward and it becomes reasonably safe for all of our involved parties.
