Ten Things Parents Need to Know

League Tournament


For the 2023-24 season, the tournament for all grades will take place from February 7th-11th.

The Sunday of tournament weekend is reserved for championship games only. We will work around parish conflicts as best as we can but there is very limited time available for this tournament to be played. All teams participate in the tournament unless they notify the league by January 15th. In order to seed teams with as much regular season data as possible, the schedule for the tournament will be released on the Monday of tournament week. A team trophy is given to the 1st and 2nd place team in each bracket. Boys championship games for 6th-8th grades are usually played at area high schools such as Moeller, McNicholas, St. Xavier, Purcell-Marian, and Roger Bacon.
