The correct date for the event is Monday, February 20th. There was a mistake in last message. We apologize for any confusion!1/26/2023 2:45 PM
It's that time of year...to nominate up to 3 players from your team to represent your school/team in this year's Presidents' Day Showcase. This event will be held at Berkshire High School on Monday, February 13th. Please note your nomination is NOT a guarantee that your players will be selected to play in the event. There are only 200 spots available (our league has over 160 teams). Please use your best judgement when nominating players. You do not have to nominate any players or you may nominate up to 3. Use the link below to nominate your players. More info is attached as well.
The League Tournament schedule is up and final. Reminder...the league tournament is setup as 15 seperate tournaments amongst all of our boys/girls divisions. Tournaments are setup using regular season records, resume, team skill level, etc. Our league has teams from all over Northeastern Ohio as well. So location, school size, coaches who coach multiple teams, etc. also go into this. The league tournament is NOT a traditional tournament strictly based on ONLY your records in your division over the course of the regular season. The league tournament has teams grouped together of similiar skill level that result in a competitive tournament of teams with like ability. Our goal is for good basketball games! Tournament placements are not up for debate. When looking at your tournament brackets PLEASE look at the consolation games on the bottom. MOST teams will play multiple (2-3) tournament games based on wins and losses. You can only find these scheduled games by looking directly on your tournaments bracket page under Consolation games. They will not be on your team schedule page on the app/website. We do not want teams missing out on games. Good luck to all teams as we move forward into our league tournament schedule.

Don't forget to score your games on Gamechanger! Every week one of our Big Leaf teams will win $100 to Dick's Sporting Goods! This weeks winner is the Chagrin 4th grade boys team!
PLEASE ALWAYS USE THE APP FOR YOUR MOST UP TO DATE SCHEDULE. GAMECHANGER DOES NOT ALWAYS REFLECT UP TO DATE SCHEDULE. THE APP IS ALWAYS UP TO DATE. THANKS!
