Tournament Details

We intend to host several Mite classifications including 7U (2009 and later), 8U (2008 and later) and 8U-Tier2 (2008-2009 and later) and at Squirts we're seeking 10U-Mixed (2006-2007 and later).

Each classification will have 8 teams (with each having 2 divisions of 4).  Other features include:

  • $1250 entry fee
    • No gate fees, no parking fees, etc.
  • 5 games (all teams)
    • 3 round-robin games on Fri(am & pm)-Sat(am)
    • and then all teams advance to a Semi on Sat(pm)
    • and then all teams play a 5th game within a Final on Sun (within either the Championship Pool or Challenger Pool)
  • 13 minute stop-time periods
  • Tournament Program (each participant, essentially 20 per team).
    • Please understand that the Tournament Program is the primary reason that we must have verbal commitments a completed Questionnaire and set the field earlier than usual.  A good Tournament Program takes some time to prepare, gathering information, team pictures, etc.
  • Championship and Finalist (Team Trophy) within the Championship Pool
  • AAU National Championship Medals (Gold, Silver, Bronze) within the Championship Pool
    • Very likely there will be AAU "Sports For All" medals awarded within the Challenger Pool
  • we are currently planning an All-Star type Skills Competition for each age classification
  • please be aware that this is also a Stay & Play type tournament.  However, our area hotel contracts are not terribly expensive and offer a great value in quality hotels.
