Hello Parents!


As I'm sure you are all aware, our Blaine Boys Basketball Tournament is coming up on 1/11-1/12!  With all of the holiday craziness going on it is coming fast and will be here before we know it!!!! 



As you all know from registration and the parent's meeting, we rely on all of you wonderful parents to volunteer during this 2-day tournament.  We are one of the only sport organizations in the Twin Cities that does not require a volunteer deposit from families at registration because of the great track record we've had for participation.  

Each family is asked to volunteer for one shift during the 2-day tournament regardless of how many players are in your family.


This year we will only need volunteers at the Admissions tables taking money and giving out the wristbands.  The Blaine Boys HS Basketball Team will be doing the scoreboards and sweeping the gyms for us, which will be a great help for us!!!!!


Our tournament schedule was just finalized late last week so I am currently working on what the volunteer schedule will look at each school.  I'm looking at probably 2-3 hour long shifts doing Admissions with 2 people on at a time.  You will be volunteering at the school where your son will be playing as we don't want you to miss any of their games.  I will do my very best to try not to have your team's volunteer shifts be while your team is playing, but please know that I can really only guarantee this for their first game as their following games are up in the air until after that first game is played.

If your team's volunteer shifts happen to end up being at the same time that your team is playing, you can work with another team that is not playing at that time to switch shifts with them.  Please coordinate through your team manager for trading shifts.


I will be getting the volunteer schedules out to your mangers by the end of December and they will then be contacting you all on signing up for the shifts needed.

Please note that this will be a very quick turn around time to complete so please sign up as soon as you can and as quickly as you can!!!!


Thank you in advance for your help and support to make our Blaine Basketball Tournament a huge success!




Thank you,
