Registration for SCJ is now open in Tourney Machine

UpdatedFriday October 23, 2020 byMeadowlark Lemon.

SCJ 2021 - ELEVATE is filling up fast. Register now to ensure that your team has a spot in one of the most exciting tourneys of the season. One reason it's so exciting is that we are under one roof at MI3 Center and this creates a great atmosphere for coaches, players, and families to see a lot of basketball. We are targeting to host ~80 teams across all age divisions. Every year we have new teams show up and add to a dynamic mix of teams. We understand that it is early and teams are still forming, but go ahead and register if you think there's a decent chance that one of your teams will make.

Divisions:  Divisions will be structured by age groups – 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U. Teams should be set based on age as of Sept 1, 2020. For example, all players on your 14U team can be no older than 14 on Sept 1, 2020.

Brackets/Schedule:  We will use Tourney Machine again this year to manage the tournament. We will publish a preliminary schedule ~two weeks out for review and a final schedule ~one week ahead of first tip. We will attempt to accommodate conflicts as much as possible, but we cannot make guarantees. So, that means be prepared for two situations:

  • Having an assistant coach or parent coach a game if there is a game conflict for a coach
  • Playing without a dual rostered player if there is a conflict for a player
