The Easter Bunny is coming this weekend and so is the AAU Easter Classic! More than 280 boys basketball teams will convene at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex and THREE off-sites with one goal in mind: take home the gold. Osceola Heritage Park, Orlando Sports Center and the Silver Spurs Arena will also play host to this incredible number of teams. Grade divisions ranging from 9U through 19U will be at this event, which will span across three days.
Pool play will kick off Friday at 1pm and will continue through mid-Saturday. Bracket play will begin Saturday and the CHAMPION of each division will be crowned on Sunday. Please keep in mind, the Atlanta Braves will be having Spring Training baseball games on Thursday and Saturday. This could cause traffic back-up so please allow ample time for your team to park and get to your game.
If you are just attending the event as a parent or fan, you can purchase passes for the AAU Easter Classic at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex ticket window or at all off-site venues. Adult tickets are $17 and $12 for children per day. You can also purchase length of event passes for $34 for adults and $24 for children.
This will be our first event using our NEW schedule/results software, Tourney Text. This is a great software that we are excited to be using to help bring the schedule and results to our teams faster than ever before.
AAU medals and trophies will be awarded to first and second place teams. The top four (4) finishers in each grade division in all tournaments will receive a CONDITIONAL bid into the 2015 AAU Boys Basketball National Championships. Teams that qualify for the National Championship MUST play in their District Qualifying Tournament (DQT) to validate their bid.
Good luck to ALL of the teams that are participating! We can’t wait to see you out there!
