Here are some additional notes and information on the classic.

Coaches will need to check in @ Westfield HS door 13 before first game to collect event packet.

You need to know this could be as many as 6 games if you do not get eliminated. Pool games and an elimination tournament starting Saturday evening after you play 2-3 games. We will post the pool play schedule and the bracketed tournament. You could play your first bracket game Saturday night! I encourage you to look at the info from last season to get an idea of what your weekend may look like. We've had over 100 teams for some years now. Thanks to you and your overwhelming response! Firt team listed, or top team in the bracket will be the home team. Each team will be required to provide a book or clock keeper for each game. The tournament will be run under AAU rules for scoring pool play and other rule interpretation, including bench personnel. The following are modifications :

Game Timing : we will employ a 6 minute quarter for 3-4th, 7 minute quarter for 5-7th, and 16 minute half for 8th and up. A 8-minute warm-up should be allowed for all games. Warm-up may be shortened to a minimum of 2 minutes. Halftime for all age groups will be 4 minutes. Halftime may be shortened to a minimum of 2 minutes

Modified Mercy Rule : Anytime, one team is ahead by 20 points or more, a running clock will be used. (If trailing team cuts the margin to 19 or less, then the usual stop-clock will be used.)

We will be providing full concessions at all games. We are trying to pattern the event in line with what you will find in your AAU events. For those who are traveling long distance, or have early/late games, our local hotels are providing some specials if you ask for the contact person and let them know you are playing this weekend. There will be a $5 gate collected Friday, $12 Saturday, and $6 Sunday. We will have tournament passes available for $16 and $48 for your immediate family.
