Q: Do you play in out of town tournaments that require hotel stay?
A: The large majority of our tournaments will be local (most will be in Seal Beach, Garden Grove and
Anaheim). However, we will play in 1 to 3 out-of-town tournaments each season. Hotel stay is
recommended for out-of-town tournaments, and we typically contract with a local property for a group rate.
Q: How soon in advance will we know the game times for a tournament?
A: We realize that every family has schedules outside of basketball and likes to plan their weekends in advance.
With many club basketball tournament organizers, schedules are not set until typically the Thursday night
before the tournament begins. In other words, the schedules are not set by us, but by those putting on the
tournament. We send out schedules as soon as we receive them, in order to give our families as much notice as
possible. Please know that scheduled tournament dates are always subject to change at the tournament hosts’
discretion, and is outside of our control.
Q: How many tournaments do you play in and how often?
A: We play in two tournaments on average per month. Most tournaments will have games on both Saturday
and Sunday. Some tournaments will be on holiday weekends with games taking place over three days. Our full
tournament schedule for the upcoming season can be found on the website.
