Tip Off – St. Louis
November 1 - 2, 2019

Last season 55 teams from 9 States tipped off their season in St. Louis! In 2019 we are excited to welcome Home School teams from 10 States (Michigan, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Iowa, Arkansas, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin). Tip Off - STL is a great chance to see and play teams you may not see until Nationals. To accommodate for continued growth we've moved to St. Charles County with games being on 4 courts @ GameTime Sports and 1.7 miles away on 3 courts @ St. Peters Rec-Plex South building. The Rec Plex is a great family venue open to the public with a huge indoor pool, ice skating rink, gym & more.

Divisions & "Live" Brackets:
Division I:  Boys and Girls: 18U, 16U, 14U, 12U
Brackets will be updated as games are complete! Live Brackets

Tournament Rules:
Teams will have 5 minutes to warm up before their game and 5 minutes for half-time.  

All games may start up to 20 minutes early (except the 1st game of the day). This has always allowed us to run on time or ahead of schedule the entire tournament. If the previous game on your court ends early you will have 5 minutes to warm up, then your game will start early. We will not start a game more than 20 minutes earlier than the scheduled time.

If a team is winning by 20 points or more in the 2nd half it will be running clock. If the lead drops below 20 points it will return to normal clock.

After the game one person from each team will text in the court, scheduled game time, division and score details to (636) 244-8763
