MSC/CJB COVID-19 Update

(May 19) We hope you and your families are all safe and doing well during these challenging times.  Monroe Sports Center and Central Jersey Basketball will remain closed and all activities suspended until the government allows us to open.  Governor Murphy announced that private tennis clubs are allowed to open their outdoor tennis courts only on Fri May 22 so it is our expectation that indoor tennis will be permitted shortly as well.  With the NJ Stay-At-Home order currently running thru June 7, MSC and CJB are planning to open on Mon Jun 8 with several restrictions in both basketball and tennis.  Click Here for Tennis or Here for Basketball to view the policies and procedures that MSC/CJB will implement in order to keep our customers and staff safe when we open.  Please note that if any new announcements are made by the government, this reopening date may be moved earlier or later in order to comply with the rules.

Please be assured that every dollar that has been spent at MSC or CJB for a program or event that has been or will be canceled due to the shutdown will be made up or credited back to you.  At this point, we are unable to process any refunds for any reason, but all of these credits and makeups will be added to our internal system and will never expire.  Below is a list of all of our programs, broken down by sport, with specific information about how credits and makeups are being handled.   If you have any questions, please email us at info@monroesportscenter.com.

 

Tennis

  • Tennis Season Courts & Lessons: Due to the length of the shutdown and the fact that everyone's schedule has changed significantly, season courts and lessons will NOT automatically be put back at their same day & time.  All season court and lesson members are entitiled to makeups for ALL of the weeks missed due to the shutdown, customers must call or email to reserve specific time once we open.  Please Click Here for many more details about the policies and procedures that MSC will be implementing to facilitate all makeups as well as keep our customers and staff safe. 

  • Tennis Clinics (Tiny Tots, 12u, Junior & Adult): The season has been extended and all weeks that are missed will be added to the end of the season at the same day and time. Consistent with our usual makeup policy for clinics, with at least 24 hours notice customers may switch to any clinic at the same level on a different day.  These makeups may carry over to future seasons so if you are unable to use all of your makeups before the end of the summer, you can use those makeups in the fall or any other future season.

  • Junior Team Tennis: The Fall JTT ended right before the 3rd place and championship match.  Those 2 matches will be rescheduled when we are able to open and a Fall JTT Champion will be crowned.  The USTA portion of the JTT season will begin immediately following the 3rd place & Championship matches and will conclude before Districts, which are currently still on as scheduled the 2nd week of July. NEW PLAYERS MAY STILL REGISTER FOR THE USTA PORTION OF THE JTT SEASON. Depending on when the shutdown ends, this may mean that teams may end up playing two matches a week in June to make sure each team gets in their full 5-match schedule.  The USTA JTT rosters and schedule will be posted when we have a definite date to open.

  • Orange Ball & Green Ball JTT:  The Spring season of Orange Ball JTT and Green Ball JTT will resume as soon as we are able to open.  Once we have a definite date when we can resume activities, we will post an updated schedule for both Orange Ball JTT and Green Ball JTT.

  • USTA Tournaments: All USTA Tournaments have been canceled by the USTA until May 31.  All tournaments after May 31 are still on as scheduled, but as the situation evolves the USTA will continue to update.

  • Special Events (Elite Round Robins, High Performance Drill Groups, Junior Tennis Ladders): All special events are off until we are able to reopen.  As soon as we are able to open, special events scheduled for dates after we open will resume on the dates currently scheduled.

  • Summer Camps (12u Camp, Level Up Camp, Junior Camp and Adult Camp):  As long as the shutdown ends by June 22, all tennis camps will run as scheduled at their current dates and times. 

Basketball

  • Winter MJBL: The winter season has officially been canceled.  All teams that had games remaining in their season will receive credit for those games that can be used for future MJBL seasons or anything else at MSC or CJB.  For example, if your team paid $1000 for 10 games, and you only played 8 of those games before the season was suspended, you will receive a $200 credit that will never expire.  Please note that you are not required to play another full season to receive the credit.  In the example above, you may choose to just play 2 games on any date you want and we will work you into the current MJBL season against opponents at your age and level.

  • Winter CJ Hawks, MSC Hawks & NJ Falcons players: The winter season has officially been canceled.  All players that had events (games or practices) remaining on their schedule will receive a credit for $10 per event missed that will not expire and can be used for future teams or anything else at MSC or CJB.

  • Winter Independent teams: The winter season has officially been canceled.  All players on independent teams will receive credit for all games and practices remaining on their schedule.  Independent teams where players were invoiced individually will have the individual credit placed directly under each player's name.  Independent teams where 1 person paid the entire invoice will have the team credit placed under their name.

  • Spring/Summer CJ Hawks players: The Spring/Summer season will resume as soon as we are able to open.  NEW PLAYERS MAY STILL TRY OUT FOR CJ HAWKS TEAMS AT THEIR AGE GROUP AT EITHER MSC OR CJB.  CJ Hawks teams run thru August so Spring/Summer CJ Hawks teams should have plenty of time to fit in the correct number of games and practices, based on the specific team package.  Once we have a definite date when we can resume activities, we will post the updated practice schedule and tournament weekends.  The game schedule will be posted shortly after that.  All teams will have at least 1 practice before any payments are due, and then payments will be due at the 2nd scheduled practice after we reopen.
