Tournament Registration

 

Please note: Here are links for the National AAU sports website with Girls and Boys Basketball Eligibility Rules - click here for girls and here for boys.  Please note: for Boys our tournaments will be age based for all grade levels - U14 and below and age/grade based for U15 and above as per AAU eligibility rules.

Please note the Boys Eligibility Rules for Boys for 2017 in regards to using ages/grades for older players.Please review the linked document above carefully and check with me or National AAU if you are unsure.

Players can only play for mulitple teams within the same club during tournaments.

Our Spring Classic, Girls and Boys State, and Maple Syrup Classic Tournaments are NEAAU Power Ranking Tournaments. Please click here for more info from NEAAU on the Boys Power Rankings and click here for more info from NEAAU on the Girls Power Rankings. All of our tournaments are AAU sanctioned and require AAU cards for players and coaches.Please contact us at vtcatscorrespondence@gmail,com if you have questions in this regard,

PLEASE NOTE: ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED ONLINE AND ALL ROSTERS MUST BE ALSO SUBMITTED ONLINE

You must use our roster or another version that contains all of the information - player name, DOB, grade, AAU number. National AAU membership verification forms are not adequate..

Registrations are not considered complete until COMPLETED rosters and payments are in, along with the registration form. Please plan on getting all of this in by our established deadlines.

Please note: Due to the number of teams and limited ability to avoid conflicts we must state that we prefer that coaches only coach one team in a tournament. If you must coach more than one team, please have an assistant coach as we cannot guarantee that we can schedule your teams at separate times.
