Can-Am Hoops Classic
17th Annual Basketball Tournaments for Boys and Girls
Sponsored by Anaconda Sports®, we invite you to join us for a first class event to be held in beautiful Northern New York at SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University. Our previous events were hugely successful and we anticipate a full field this year.
May 31 - June 2, 2013
Entry Deadline: May 24
June 7 - 9, 2013
Entry Deadline: May 31
Entry Fee – $400* per team (payable in U.S. funds)
*Entry fee does not include housing cost.
"Please note that each team has a number next to it on the top of the schedule. That number tells you your game times on Saturday and Sunday. Also note, there are no Friday games scheduled. We have tried to cut down on travel costs for everyone when possible. Each team has four games scheduled- if you are in a four team bracket your fourth game is a 1 v 2 or 3 v 4 game on Sunday. Please also note, that there are games scheduled at Clarkson University (about 1 mile from SUNY Potsdam) on Sunday as well. We have also included the Can Am information sheet that explains game rules, tie breakers, etc. Thank you in advance for coming to our tournament. We look forward to another great weekend of basketball."
Sincerely, Sherry Dobbs and Tara Ruckh
Can Am Hoops Classic Tournament Co-Directors
Each team is guaranteed four games. Boys' and girls' divisions will be organized by grades 6-12. In addition, A & B levels in each grade division will be established (if possible) to allow teams of similar caliber to compete against each other. We will attempt to form A & B pools of five teams for each age group. If possible, each team will play all the respective teams in their pool. We will make every effort to provide a top quality event by limiting the number of teams, providing highly capable timers and scorers, and utilizing only certified referees.
Note: Not all teams are scheduled for Friday games. We will try to accommodate reasonable scheduling requests if possible.
Invitations are being mailed to various Northeastern states in the U.S. and to the Ontario and Québec provinces of Canada. We expect to have several Canadian teams in each age group.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis as the entry fees arrive. Please fill out one entry form for each team entered. Payment in full of the $400 (U.S.) entry fee is due at the time of registration. Your team's group is determined by the grade level at the time of the tournament. Scheduling information and a complete listing of official rules and regulations will follow by mail upon completion of registration.
We accept payment via cash, check or money order (payable to SUNY Potsdam in U.S. funds), and credit card (MasterCard and Visa accepted). International participants must register online or via telephone, or submit a money order payable in U.S. funds. International personal checks cannot be processed at this time.
