Re: Good Hope Invitational Tournament (Cullman, AL)-10/17/15

You may want to visit the ASCA members list here. Even though it's from last year, it would to your advantage to send a mass invite to teams in the area you are hoping to reach.

Re: Alabama 2014-15

Good Hope will return three of our players from state, and one who couldn't attend due to scheduling conflicts. Two of next year's players will be attending ACE Camp in Tuscaloosa, so I am fairly certain that they are dedicated enough to try to step up and fill my place. Unfortunately, our sponsor h...

Re: South Alabama Summer Practice?

I second that. This camp has definitely helped me improve as a player. To get the most out of it, it would be best if you could get your entire team to come as well. It may seem expensive, but it is worth it. Try and talk your sponsor to come as well. They will be able to attend for free.

Re: (Re)Starting a team at the University of South Alabama

Since I'm new to the collegiate circuit, could someone give me an idea of what tournaments are around this area, approximately when they are, which ones are packet subs, and roughly how much each one costs?

Finding 10 members for your organization is useful for establishing official ties with your university. It's not necessary to have 10 official members to actually compete in things, however. If you guys have some source of money you're more than welcome to come play anywhere in the South. This brin...

I can't speak to the difficulty of MSNCT questions, but it seems like Bumpus put up pretty good stats, especially for nationals. It's not very often that Alabama has teams place in the top quarter of the field at a national event. Good job Bumpus!
