Fox Jag-Warrior Tournament Sunday
Although this tournament is called the Fox tournament, if you looked closely at the flier (I admittedly did not at first), you will see that it is being held at SECKMAN HIGH SCHOOL this year instead of Fox High School. Please make sure you know where you're going! FYI - Seckman sits in a valley and is notorious for having virtually NO cell service within its walls, so be prepared for that.
I'm sure it was a disappointment to many that the Pattonville tournament was canceled Sunday. It is highly doubtful that they will reschedule it, so I will be issuing refunds to those of you who registered (unless we have already made other arrangements). Please see me before practice Tuesday or Thursday and I'll return your checks/cash to you. I won't be at Minis practice Wednesday, but I will get theirs to one of the coaches to hand out.
AAU/USA State Tournaments
Separately, I've sent information on both the AAU State and USA District 8 tournaments via email. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We'd love to see as many Spartans as possible participate! We will likely have many Spartans doing both.
Both AAU State and USA Districts will hold seeding meetings, and we will need parents to volunteer to attend the meetings on behalf of each age division. If you are willing, please let me know. I will likely need your help to gather the seeding info from parents.
End of Season
For those not competing in the USA series (districts, regionals, state), the season will conclude with the AAU State Tournament on Feb. 23-24. Those who are competing in the USA series will continue practicing through March 7.
We will plan a post-season banquet for everyone soon, and details will be forthcoming. For the past several years, we have had a separate banquet for the Mini-Spartans due to the earlier ending of their season. With the USA series being bumped up by several weeks this year, however, we will likely bring everyone together once again. We hope all of you will join in the celebration at that time.
Thanks all! Let's finish the season strong, Spartans!
