Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase Update

Below is an email I sent out to everybody on our bulk email list regarding the upcoming session of the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase.  Please review.


We are now just a little over 3 short weeks away from the spring session of Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase, and I’m currently putting the finishing touches on the event format and schedule. As a reminder, the event is scheduled for March 12th (one day only) at Whithall Yearling High School located at 675 S Yearling Rd, Whitehall, Ohio 43081.  On that Saturday, registration will open by 7:30am and the games are scheduled to begin around 9:15am (tentative). 

I plan to have an initial draft of the rosters, team assignments and schedule posted on our website (www.buckeyeprep.blogspot.com) at least 1 week prior to the event.  The only names that will appear on the rosters will be those players who have submitted the registration forms and fee. Although I have posted a tentative participant list on the website, that list is not official, so if your son/player’s name is listed there but you have not sent in the forms and/or fee, they will not have a spot in the event.  In addition, I have to place the jersey order by next week and I cannot order a jersey if I have not received the registration fee and forms. Therefore, you must act quickly if you want to get your son/player registered. Additionally, it’s very important that you continue to visit on a regular basis so you can follow any updates that me be posted.

Also, I know a number of you have paid the registration fee via Pay Pal, but have not yet sent in your registration forms.  If that’s the case, I need you to do so as soon as possible so I can match the forms I received with your son/player’s name, and get them on my official participant list. If you have/or will pay your fee via Pay Pal, please make sure you bring the receipt with you when you register your son/player.  In case you have misplaced the invitation and registration forms, I have attached another copy to this email.

Finally, I’m in need of additional coaches for this session.  In addition to the satisfaction of working with young people, coaches receive a free admission to the event, a free T-shirt and access to the media/coaches lounge where they can relax and enjoy complimentary food and drink the entire day.  Also, as a reminder, any player who has participated in past events, have been featured on our website or is ranked nationally on statewide is invited to all Buckeye Prep events.  If you know of any player(s) who meets these criteria, please have the contact me at 614-203-2929 for an invitation.

If you have any questions or concerns about the event, please feel free to email or call me at the number listed above.
