Volunteer sign-up for June 9-10 tournament fundraiser

Hello Boys Basketball Families,

We are happy to confirm that we have received a new opportunity to host a basketball tournament on June 9th and 10th to make up for the one we lost due to weather. We understand that this is short notice and there are a lot of events happening that weekend, including graduation, but we need your help to make this tournament a success. We have tried to accommodate the craziness of the weekend by shortening the shifts. All shifts will be 2 1/2 hours. So, we are asking all families of current 8th through 11th grade boys to participate in this event.

Boys Basketball Booster Club Volunteer Incentives Update

Dear Boys Basketball Families –

Due to the loss of our biggest fundraiser this year, we have been forced to reconfigure our volunteer incentives program.  The Boys Basketball Booster Club will no longer be able to supplement the cost for the Summer League/MN Gophers Camp/Shakopee Tournament.  We still hope to open up volunteer positions to put toward the warm-ups.  We are working on events to allow you to sign up for volunteer spots, but we don’t know what that will look like at this time.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Also, we are still in need of a Fundraising Director and Volunteer Director on our Booster Board.  If you are interested in helping or just learning more about the positions and helping as a possible coordinator, please contact us at farmingtonbasketball@gmail.com.

AAU FUNDRAISER TOURNAMENT CANCELED THIS WEEKEND!

In the last couple of hours we have been informed by MYAS that all MYAS tournaments this weekend have been canceled including ours due to incoming weather.
As this is our biggest fundraiser of the year, we are very disappointed and will look into other options to help continue to make this program the success we have made it so far.  We also have to relook at our incentives we hoped to offer with the money raised from this tournament.  More information to follow on this.
Thank you all for your understanding!
