Schedule of Tournaments and Leagues 2013-14

This is a tentative schedule of our tournament/league activity for the 2013-14 school year.  You don't get better by sitting home on Saturdays!  You get better by studying and by playing other teams!

Solon Individual Tournament

Saturday, September 28, 2013

This tournament is set up differently than any other tournament we participate in all year.  Players are entered individually instead of by team and then they are randomly put on teams with players from other schools. This is not a qualifier tournament.  This is just a "warm up" tournament to get the buzzers going!

FKT at Olmsted Falls

Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Olmsted Falls High School

We host FKT to help raise funds so that our program can exist.

This is an OAC Regionals Qualifier and a PACE Qualifier.

All players are welcome to participate in this tournament.

We need parent/adult volunteers to help with concessions/reading/scorekeeping!

TRASH at OFMS
