We have received a number of inquiries from the coaches to please push back the event date due to the amount of current events going on in and around the Texas vicinity. In an effort to maximize team participation, we were able to push back the date to 08/08/21 at the same venue. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call us. All registrations will be automatically moved to August 8 and registration will extend. The site will be updated today.
Thanks in advance.
