Below is a copy of an email that was sent out today. Also, below is a link to the initial draft of the showcase rosters and schedule. We're extremely excited with the level of competition that will be attending this event! In terms of numbers, this may be the biggest event we've ever held. Please review the documents very closely and call us with any need corrections. "Can't wait!"
Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase Roster & Schedule (Updated 9-15-16)
Attached please find attached the “initial draft” of the showcase schedule and rosters. I say initial draft because there will be some changes between now and next September 17th. As players are added (there are still a few spots available), rosters may change as well as the schedule. Also, the coaches’ assignments are subject to change as well. I’m only sending this information out this early so I can clean up mistakes prior to the event and so you can get some idea how things will look and work out in a few weeks.
We know that there are names of players who may have paid but are not listed and we know there some changes will be required. Therefore, please read the attached documents very carefully to insure your child/player is accounted for, is listed in the correct division, his name is spelled correctly and his name does not appear multiple times and in multiple divisions. Also, please check your son/player’s schedule to inure there are 4 games scheduled. If you see any mistakes, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the issues(s) and I will make the corrections prior to the event.
In addition, it’s very important that you continue to visit the website daily (http://www.buckeyeprep.blogspot.com) between now and the event in order to check for updates, as I will be posting changes up until the night before the event. Also attached is another copy of the registration forms. Please have them completed prior to your arrival on Saturday. This form is important so I have accurate information about your son/player and so I have current contact information for future contacts. To you coaches who are bring multiple players, I need registration forms for each player! If your son/player is listed and you know they will not be attending the event, please advise us ASAP so we can open up his spot. Also, as we get paid customers, any player whose name is listed but has not paid the entry fee will be deleted from the roster in place of the paid customer.
The facility is located at Otterbein University (1 South Grove St. Westerville, OH). Registration will open at 8:00am, the slate of all-star games will begin at 9:00am, I will give opening remarks by 3:00pm, and the first round of games will tip off at 4:00pm. If your son/player is not involved in the Saturday all-star games, he does not need to arrive at the gym until about 2:00pm. On another note, there will be an $10.00 admission charge each day. In addition, I still have the need for a few backup coaches if anyone is interested, as I always get unexpected no shows. Coaches receive free admission, ($20 value) a t-shirt and access to the Roosters Media/Coaches Lounge where they can eat and drink (water, juices and sodas) throughout the day.
Coaches, please take the time to read the attached “Coaches Letter,” as it spells out our expectations. In addition, we will also be holding a coaches meeting at 2:15 sharp, so please plan to arrive on time so we can discuss several important matters. Also, you will be expected to wear our camp t-shirt (red), so please dress accordingly.
In closing, my staff and I are working hard to insure you and your son/player has a great experience, and hope you and your son/player is excited. Finally, please arrive at the gym with a healthy dose of patience and positive energy, as it will be a long day. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 614-203-2929.
