Tournament Volunteers needed in June

The season is off and running! 

 

Tournament volunteer support needed June 8-10, 15-17, and June 22-24

We need your volunteerism to help with BTBA tournaments which do not have teams associated with them this season. We have assigned all available teams one given weekend to collectively support and be responsible for.

Your team will be reaching out to you with a SignUpGenius once brackets are completed and shift needs are known to coordinate and ensure minimal impact to each family. We ask that you please support the coordinators and BTBA; if you were unable to support field clean-up day please ensure you sign up. Here are the assigned weekends for each team so you can know what to expect:

1.     6/8 - 15AAA tourney: available teams to support are 10AA Blue,  12A, 13A Blue, 13AAA 

2.     6/15 - 14AAA tourney: available teams to support are 10A Red, 10A Blue, 11AAA, 12AAA, 13AA 

3.     6/22 - 14/15A tourney: available teams to support are 11A, 13A Red, 14AA

 

Go Bandits!
