Panhandle Basketball presents

13th Annual March Madness

March 23-24, 2024
Gulf Shores, Alabama


Good Moring

Hope everyone had a great day of basketball yesterday. We are looking forward to another great day, for championship day!

Just a few reminders....
1. Please remember that this is a kid’s game. We want everyone to have fun and enjoy the games. Good sportsmanship, while competing hard is what every competitor should strive for. If we have poor sportsmanship from players or coaches, poor behavior from spectators, we will remove them from the game and or gym. Taunting will receive a technical foul from officials as well as foul language from players and coaches. We hope we don't have any of these issues today, but if we do, know that we won't hesitate to solve them.
We have a zero tolerance policy for poor behaivior or misconduct!
2. Please allow yourself time to arrive to your games 1hr prior, with traffic..
3. Gyms will not open until 730AM

Have a blessed day and good luck to everyone!

Please look over the schedule.

One of referees had an emergency and had to leave the gym early. Which put Fairhope middle behind schedule. We moved a couple games around to make sure we get back on time for all teams.
Please take a minute and look over the schedule.

Thank you
