Entrance Fee: Free
The "End of Season" tournament is a weekend of fun and basketball to give our players an opportunity to play for the league championship as well as take part in other activities. There will be two tournament series (Championship and Friendship) for grades 6-8 and a Championship bracket for the 5th grade. Additionally the NIGFBA All-Star game will be Sunday March 15 at 7PM.
Invite your family, friends and fans to watch thrilling girls basketball and the high school stars of tomorrow. There will be upto 8 games being played simultaneously throughout the weekend. And remember, there is no fee at the door so be sure to bring lots of spectators.
Tournament Waiver and Ankle Band
Every player at this year's End of Season tournament will be required to complete a tournament waiver and wear an ankle band for the duration of the tournament. When the waiver is turned in by the player, an ankle band will be issued. NOTE: the player must be present to get the ankle band, the bands WILL NOT be given to parents or coaches. Anyone found to be playing without an ankle band will be asked to leave the game until one can be obtained.
Everyone should plan for extra time prior to their first game so they can check-in at the tournament desk and get ankle bands.
