The field for the 2013 Buckeye Prep Invitational Tournament totals 116 teams, and includes many talented teams from around the Midwest in grades 4th-12th (not enough teams for a 3rd grade division). Below is a link to the pool assignments and the INITIAL DRAFT OF THE SCHEDULE. I call it an initial draft because there will likely be some minor changes between now and when the tournament tips off on Friday. Therefore, it is very important that everybody continue to check for updates between now and then. The final and official schedule will be posted at the various sites, so please make sure you check there when making your travel plans.
There are still a few teams that have not submitted their ENTRY FEES. For those teams, you must report to Ohio Dominican University on Friday night to make full payment. Teams that have not paid their entry fees will not be allowed to play their games until the fees are paid. Also, if you see your team, or any other team for that matter listed on the schedule and you know they are not coming to the tournament, please contact us ASAP!
Also, although several teams made scheduling requests, I could not honor them all. With 116 teams and 4 venues, it’s near impossible to work the schedule to fit everybody’s unique circumstances. Therefore, other than for clear scheduling mistakes on our part (i.e., back-to-back games, missed games, ect), we cannot make any changes to the schedule. Please make the necessary arraignments to play your schedule. Also part of the attachment are the games rules for the tournament. Please read them over carefully before your arrival so there are no misunderstandings.
Every effort has been made to insure that all teams, players, coaches and parents have an enjoyable experience. However, as with any event, nothing is perfect, so please arrive with a positive spirit and a desire to compete at the highest levels. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at Taylorobe@aol.com, or call me at 614-203-2929. Have a safe trip and we look forward to seeing you here in Columbus this weekend!
