REGISTER NOW, TRYOUTS for this year's Atlanta Revolution box teams that will attend the USBoxla Nationals are set for May 15th and 22nd from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
The USBoxla Nationals are in San Jose California at the end of the summer and it is the biggest and best box tournament in the US! If you ask those that went last year it was an absolute blast! This year the tournament is August 4th-6th.
Tournament Location: Silverplex Sports Plex, San Jose CA
Dates Aug 4-6th. Available to play morning of the 4th to mid afternoon on the 6th.
Travel: Air travel and hotel is players responsibility. This is a "Play and Stay" tournament so our rostered players must stay at a tournament hotel. We have booked a block at the San Jose Hilton for Aug 3-5th for our team. Rate is $135/night - this is a good rate for San Jose.
Cost: Similar to last year we will schedule about 6 hours of practice either three 2 -hour sessions or two 3- hour sessions in June and July so as to not conflict with other commitments. Registration about $185 or less (not including uniform and USBoxla membership). For new players annual membership in USBoxla is required ($45) and the purchase of a uniform (about $70)
The age group format for the tournament is different than how we are accustomed to play. It follows official USBoxla DOB rules and is not based upon grade level. Doesn't matter what month you were born, just the year. Eligibility for divisions is as follows:
Novice - 2007-2008 (TBD et me know if there is an interest)
PeeWee - 2005-2006
Bantam - 2003-2004
