Veteran Santa Clarita Valley basketball coach Greg Hayes’ scheduled return trip to North Korea this summer has been canceled, he told The Signal this week.

The trip was to be the second of its kind, in which Hayes, as he did in the summer of 2012, would have led a group of basketball players to North Korea to participate in basketball activities with teams native the to the country.

The group was to play in China from June 8-15 and North Korea from June 15-21.

In an email, Hayes detailed the confusion that arose recently regarding the trip, with North Korea officials informing the group that no basketball-related activities would occur.

“Basically, we finally received some clarity about the entire process. ... They told us there would be no basketball activity on this trip so we have decided not to go,” he wrote.

The group still plans to visit China.

“Our new plans are to go to Beijing and also into rural China, which is a special opportunity as well,” Hayes wrote.
