Rules/Eligibility

Age / Grade Eligibility

The philosophy behind the Showcase tournament series is to give teams (both club and school) the opportunity to play in several competitive tournaments at an affordable price point.

All tournaments are open to any team (AAU, YBOA, school sponsored, etc) and are guaranteed three game minimum. Games will consist of two (2) twenty minute halves. The clock will only stop for team called timeouts and during the last minute of each half for all deadballs. Games will be played by TSSAA rules.

2019 Grade Divisions will be determined by the student-athlete's current (2018-19) school enrolled grade level.

Eligible student-athletes are to be determined by current grade levels for the 2018-19 school year. A copy of a report card from the 2018-19 school year shall be verification.

There are no age qualifications to determine eligibility.
