Tournament Sites

The main tournament site will be the Springfield College Field House.  Secondary sites include local Springfield local Schools, where team's may have one or two games. 

Springfield College's field house has 4 high school regulation courts and is ideal for hosting a tournament aimed at providing exposure and competition.  The field house was built in the summer of 2008 and is directly connected with Blake Arena, where the HoopHall Classic is played.  Teams will have the ability to walk back and forth between the two tournaments.

Tournament Format

Every team will be guaranteed a minimum of 3 games. 

This tournament will follow championship style, pool play to bracket play or straight bracket play.  Teams can be placed in 3 or 4 teams pools and get a minimum of 2 pool play games with their third game either coming pool play or 1st round of bracket play OR we may start the tournament from a bracket and winners advance, while losers get consolation games, etc.  

Unfortunately, championships games will NOT be played at the Hall of Fame this year because of a prior commitment for the use of center court.

The tournament will have "A" and "B" divisions.
