The schedule should be posted here by Noon Wednesday.  As a heads up, all Columbus and Dayton teams should be prepared to play Friday night games.  I know you guys would prefer not to play Friday games, and some coaches even requested no Friday games, but because of very limited court space due to COVID-19, we have to have them in order to fit all of the teams in the tournament.  Below is a list of the tournament rules.  Please read them carefully so there is no confusion this weekend.  Will will be following these rules to a tee!  Don’t bring older kids to this tournament!  Per our tournament rules, If you are challenged on a kid, you had better have birth certificates and grade cards or risk being put out of the tournament.  Make sure you have a designated score keep/clock operator. We will be providing your designee a coaches band (3 total) for the weekend for their efforts. As part of our COVID-10 protocols, coaches, players and parents will have to exit the gym immediately after their games so as to reduce the crowd size.

Invited/Committed Team List

Due to limited court space this year, the Buckeye Prep Invitational Tournament will be an “invitation only” tournament.  Invitations will be extended to the most talented teams, and the organizations that have supported Buckeye Prep events the most in the past.  A formal invitation list (100 teams max) will be published within the next few weeks and a payment deadline will be set.  After that date has expired, teams will be selected from a waiting list.
