Each participant will bring a grocery bag of non-perishable food to the tournament, which will then be donated through Help Kick Hunger to the Greensboro Urban Ministry. There will be a team competition to determine who brings the most donated food to the tournament.
This tournament will be played in lieu of the former Holiday Toy Classic. While the focus of the tournament is now food rather than toys, the charitable nature of the tournament remains remains alive and well. In addition to the large amounts of food that will be donated to the needy, the net proceeds of the tournament will go to local charities.
The cost of participation is $25 per player if payment is received on or before Saturday, October 6 and $35 thereafter. Walkup registrations may be permitted as space allows, the cost of which is $50 per player.
For high school teams that wish to register as a team, the cost is $400 if payment is received before Saturday, October 6 and $500 thereafter.
The Blackhawks reserve the right to close registration at any time in its discretion.
Only players currently in high school with high school eligibility remaining may play in the high school division. Adult players must be at least 18 years of age and must have graduated from high school. No player may play for more than one team.
Each team will play at least 3 games. As in past years, there will be skills competitions for high school players in the following categories: Shot Speed; Shot Accuracy; Longest Shot; and Ground Balls.
Given the charitable purpose of this tournament, all fees are non-refundable.
Hope to see you on November 4! Let’s really STICK IT TO HUNGER!
