Last Call

The field for the September 12th & 13th Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase is filling in nicely, and promises to be one of the most competitive events of the year!  below is an email I sent out a couple of days ago reminding parents and coaches about the upcoming deadline. Please review the same and contact us at 614-203-2929 or ASAP of you still have interest in the event.

Parents and Coaches,
We are now just 4 short weeks away from the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase/NYBL All-Star Weekend, and I’m currently putting the finishing touches on the event format and schedule. As a reminder, the event is scheduled for September 12th & 13th at Otterbein University.  Registration will open by 7:30am, with the NYBL All-Star games scheduled to tip off about 9:30am, followed by the elite showcase about 5:00pm (still very tentative).  We will start back on Sunday about 8:00am and finish up with the final all-star games by about 5:00pm.  

I plan to have an initial draft of the rosters, team assignments and schedule posted 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 (see below), 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 August 24th and I cannot order a jersey if I have not received the registration fee and forms. Therefore, you still have time, but you must act quickly if you still want to get your son/player registered.

If you son/players is participating in one of the NYBL All-Star games, he may be receiving a custom jersey and shoes (depending on the game); therefore, we need to know his uniform and shoe size by tomorrow!  
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.  If you son'player's name is listed among the "Committed Player" list and your plans have changed, please do us the courtesy of letting us know that. In addition, if you have submitted your interest and your son/player's name is not listed, please contact me and I will update the list.  Finally, in case you have misplaced the invitation and registration forms, I have attached another copy to this email.
If you have any questions or concerns about the event, please feel free to email or call me at 614-203-2929.
