This tournament is ONLY for school league teams in the MO Family Sports Winter League 2023. There is no cost to register your team. There are no schedule requests allowed for this event. Games may be on Fri-Sun. It is survive and advance- if you lose one game, you are eliminated from the tournament.
Tournament registrations are normally $150, with $6 gate fees. This tournament is free registration, and will have $4 daily gate fees.
If your team is not registered by 2/21, your team will not be placed in the tournament.

You' will receive an email with a roster form and liability forms for parents to sign.
The tournament is for 2nd-6th grade, and divisions will depend on the amount of teams registered in each division. Ideally, divisions are identical to the ones you find in the league but could be changed if not enough teams register in a division.
Game rules will remain the same as league play.
School League Basketball
-We recommend you try to form a team by talking to teachers, parents in your child's class, etc, to try and form a school team on your own.
In the event you can't do that, sign up as an individual. If we receive any other individuals from your school in same grade, we will place you together.
-Games will be played at a location TBD.
-Each team is responsible for finding a practice facility and any costs, as well as uniforms. Uniforms can be jerseys, shirts, etc. They just need to be the same color and be numbered. We suggest making your own, or going to local vendors, such as Yellow Frog, PJs, the Mark It, Firehouse, First Street, the Sports Page, etc.
-Games will be played on weeknights. We do not know what night or when until we close registration and see how many teams sign and in what division.
-6 games, and then a single elimination city tournament (for grades 2nd-6th)
-Coaches are NEEDED! Especially for individual registrations. There are no requirements, other than someone who is willing to organize practices and encourage and love children.
-Foul language or threatening behavior are not allowed. You will be banned from the league immediately. No second chances.
-The people who signed up as individuals will be put on teams once registration closes.
-$2 gate fee for guests 8 and older. 2 coaches per team/players get in free.
Registration CLOSES 12/2. Once it closes, there will be no late registration.
Games will start no sooner than 1/9
Schedule requests can be made, but cannot be guaranteed. There are too many teams to be able to meet many of the requests. Be prepared to be flexible.
This is a growth league- FOR FUN! It creates a more level playing field, and is great for players of all ages. More advanced players can take a leadership role, help teach, and grow their game, just like a player who is playing for the first time.
