Ball So Hard and Extra Eyes
Why the Clutch City Clash
This is will be the second year of the event. The Clutch City Clash basketball tournament hosted 16 teams last season as a 17U only event and had 9 different universities that attended. This will become an must attend event for grassroots teams with solid prospects who could play at the next level. This platform will provide the visibility, benefits, and experience of a LIVE event. We will provide flexibility, logistical, and financial effectiveness that is required to run an successful event. This will also be a way to get a leg up heading into the only LIVE period in July of 2020. This year we look to push it to a 32 team tournament bracket for the 17U division and also will be adding 15U & 16U levels as well. To keep the event competitive and the draw of college coaches to continue to attend we will be sending out invitations to teams with solid prospects as well as hearing from other teams who may have a prospect that a particular college would love to see. The event fee for teams is $250 per team, no multiple team discount will be given.

Ball So Hard
I've been studying basketball as a statistician and recruiter since 2005, and coached (AAU) basketball for 4 years. I have built relationships with different Colleges/Universities Coaches and Scouts at all levels in both the southwest and midwest. I have also helped a handful of Student-Athletes go on to play at the NCAA D1-D-3, NAIA, and NJCAA levels.
