Hello Coaches and Families of FFF!

The schedule has now been released for next Saturday, October 29th.

You can find your schedule in one of three locations:
1. Blaze Events app
2. Basketball Exposure page
3. page

We tried as best we could to accommodate all requests, however there were a number of conflicts between requests. We did our best to balance out what made most sense for all the divisions. We have teams in every division coming from very far. We truly appreciate that and will do our best to make this the most competitive and enjoyable day for everyone!

We will update any TBA teams as they complete registration.

We will also push out more recuirting details for our 7th grade and older teams on Monday.

Please review and if you have any questions, work through your coach.

Coaches, use for communication purposes.

Thank you!

Hello Boys and Girls FFF Coaches!

Thank you for choosing to participate in our Fight for the Fox tournament this fall!!
We have an exciting array of happenings that I will explain in the next email. For now, I would like to give you the most important information to date: Teams and Schedule updates.

We did push out a survey to see if our girls teams could move from Sunday to Saturday to alleviate teh venue operators scheduling conflict. We did hear back from all coaches and the response was overwhelmingly yes you could move with only one team still in a pending response.

Because of this response, we went ahead and moved the girls to compete on Saturday along with the boys. Please let your girls teams know they are now competing on Saturday.

If you need your hotel rooms moved from Saturday to Friday evening, please have your manager (who orginiallhy blocked the rooms) email and she will be able to handle shifting you and your parents rooms on her end so you don't have to worry about that step.

You can see the list of teams in their division right now online. You can review using the link below or please download our Blaze Events app for your convenience. We have a few teams still pending registartion, but those details will be updated as soon as their registration is complete.

I already have a rough draft of the schedule that I worked on through the evening. I expect to post this draft late today for your review. but need to review it a second time with rested eyes :)

We do have a need for the following teams if you have any others in your program who would like to participate:

Boys 15u - 1
Boys 14u OR 13u - 1
Girls 13u - 1

I will send you an email asap with the expected schedule for FFF scheduled for Saturday, October 29th.

Have a great day!
