Here are some important things for the weekend:

We anticipate having a fun,competitive and more importantly safe tournament. So with that being said we will NOT tolerate any unsportsmanlike conduct including but not limited to trash talking, vulgar language of any kind, racial slurs or taunting. This includes any coach, player, and spectator. Prior to each game, the head coach along with just one team captain from each team will be asked to meet at the scorestable to be informed on our sportsmanship code of conduct. Again we anticipate having a great competitive tournament and would not like to eject anyone nor issue any technical fouls, But a safe and competitive environment is the most important objective for this weekend.

Also we ask that there be NO BASKETBALLS brought into our facilities this weekend. We as the hosting organization will provide basketballs for warm-ups as well as the game ball. This will help keep horseplay and off-court dribbling to a minimum.

Lastly, DOWNLOAD OUR APP Syracuse Select – is a FREE iPhone and Android device app that will make the entire tournament process much easier. The APP includes addresses to all sites, pools/brackets for each division, standings within your pool, updated results for the entire tournament ,scores from each game, and much more. This APP should be your 1st choice for the most up-to-date schedule information.

Looking forward to a great event!
