Revised Schedule for the 2018 Holiday Classic is now available

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. As you know, we lost KROC at the last minute and I had to revise the schedule to use PPHACILITY, ASC and Sunnyslope High School on Saturday. We are only using PPHACILITY and ASC on Sunday. I realized that some of your scheduled have changed..but this was out of our control. Please do not request schedule changes unless absolutely needed as we don’t have much flexibility. Also – it appears that there will not be any freeway closures on I-10 this week…heading to ASC.

All games on Saturday are at the KROC Rec Center on 1375 East Broadway.

Game slots are 55 minutes, not the normal 60 minutes. This was done to make sure all 26 teams would fit into the KROC Center and to avoid very early or very late game starts.

Notes on the Diamond Classic

We will host this event monthly for youth girls until the High School season is over. We will use this series of tournaments to learn/evaluate the players in the 7th/8th grade classes. We plan to have affordable workshops on some of the other weeks to focus on position specific training.

We will also have an ALL STATE GAMES for the 7th grade class and the 8th grade class (in early March). Players will be selected based on their performance in the Diamond Classic tournaments.

Diamond Classic (Session 1): 11/17-11/18 KROC
SWS Holiday Classic: 12/1-12-2 American Sports Center
Diamond Classic (Session 2): 1/26-1/27 PHHACILITY
Diamond Classic (Session 3): 2/23-2/24 KROC
All State Games – March 8th – PHHACILITY

*** Players must participate in at least 1 session to be selected to the All State Games. MVPs for the 7th/8th grade division will automatically qualify for the All State Games.

SWS Vegas Prep Schedule now available (UPDATED)

The schedule for this weekend’s SWS Vegas Prep Showcase is now available. There have been some updates since the schedule was released on Wednesday morning to 1) Improve the match ups and 2) To remove back to back games on Sunday for a couple teams.

Couple of points:

We attempted to limit conflicts for programs best we could.  This at times created certain match ups. For the most part, match ups should be pretty good. This is stop clock event to prepare teams for the certified events.  Stop clock games are a grind for everyone involved: players, coaches, refs and parents. Admissions is $10 on Sat (2 games) and $5 on Sun (1 game) Athletic trainers will be there all day.  Free ankle taping and icing. Please don’t request schedule changes if possible
