2021 Battle 4 the Bay
INFORMATION FROM COACHES' EMAIL SENT Monday, June 14, 2021 @ 9:14 PM
Boys bracket/schedule has been posted. Again, best way to get this is download SPY REPORT BASKETBALL or the TNBA OHIO app in your App Store.
***IMPORTANT*** each team gets a “Showcase Game” before bracket play begins. We tried to give each team an essential “warm-up” and then right into main bracket play. These Showcase games do not determine anything win or lose.
PLEASE BE SURE YOU CHECK YOUR TEAM’S SCHEDULE FOR BOTH SHOWCASE GAMES AND CHAMPIONSHIP BRACKET PLAY!!! ALL SHOWCASE GAMES ARE BEFORE BRACKET PLAY.
Girls schedule will follow in the coming days. As always, continue to check your schedule for updates/changes up until Saturday.
INFORMATION FROM COACHES' EMAIL SENT Sunday, June 13, 2021 @ 1:40 PM
I trust the summer is treating you well. I'd like to take a moment to thank you for joining the 2021 Battle 4 the Bay at the brand new (and incredible) Cedar Point Sports Center in Sandusky, OH. This email is intended to provide you further details on the event that is just about a week away. A REMINDER - the BOYS EVENT is June 21-22, and the GIRLS EVENT is June 23-24.
Firstly, this event will be a complete tournament structure from the start (like March Madness!). Basically, we will place all teams into a massive bracket (keeping in mind school sizes/divisions, and trying to align accordingly in OPENING ROUND). Win and advance. Lose and you'll be relegated to independent games (like any team camp) to obtain your 5-game guarantee as promised (there is no promise who/when you'll play at this point after a tournament loss). This event is unique and exciting -- summer basketball is a great time to challenge your kids to see and compete against different schools, different players, different styles and so on -- why not make it even more exciting with a tournament from the start.
Below you will see an overview of many items. Please read on and if you have questions, contact information is at the end of this email.
