Next tournament: Cinco De Mayo Basketball in Avondale, AZ. We are presently working on securing a hotel for this event and will be informing you this week of that status. Please start making plans for your player(s). If your player is going to need a ride, please inform your coach ASAP so that we can start planning on how to get player(s) to the tournament via rental vehicle(s). Total cost for players without parents will be determined by the end of the week.
Cesar Chavez Tournament final results:
JV Boys - Tied for 3rd place out of 6 teams. Won 2 games and lost 2 games. Both losses only combined for 8 points total. So good outing
Freshmen - Won 2 games and lost 2 games. Were the Champions of the Consultation bracket.
7th grade - Won 1 game and lost 2 games. Tied for 5th place out of 6 teams.
Good outing for the first tournament of the season. Coaches were able to see what kind of players they have on their teams and players are certainly ready to get back to practice and improve on the skills needed to be successful at travel basketball.
Thank you parents for attending the tournament, cheering on your teams, and for being a positive influence on your players. Remember that no matter how your player performed, they want to be the BEST THEY CAN BE. Encourage them to attend practices and give maximum effort to improve their game.
