Chill-Lax Freshman/Sophomore Tourney Set For March 18-19

6th Annual 2016 Wasatch Chill-Lax
Freshman/Sophomore Tournament
March 18-19, 2016
The 6th Annual Wasatch Chill Lax Tournament will be played on March 18-19, 2016 at the Art Dye Park in American Fork. The tournament focuses on freshman and sophomore players.
“We want to give younger high school players a venue to develop and have a tournament experience early in the season,” said Jason Matheny, tournament director. “Many programs put so much emphasis on varsity players that some of the younger players get overlooked.  We want to keep the cost down to make it affordable for all teams to participate. It is expensive to run a tournament for referees and field space but we are fortunate that we have great AFHS booster and players to volunteer their time to help make this tournament successful.”

The tournament is a great way for younger players to get familiar with their teammates, get great game experience and to simply learn the game in a competitive environment.Chill Lax
All players must be in 9th or 10th grade. A team may have up to three (3) 11th or 12th graders as long as they have never played in a varsity high school game. This tournament is geared towards freshman and sophomore players, but want teams to play as a team if an older player is on that age team. For insurance purposes, teams must submit a team roster to the office before their first game. Rosters shall be fixed once the tournament begins.
“The tournament was started by AFHS as there was no freshman/sophomore tournaments six years ago,” said Matheny. “Former board President Bruce Tucker was instrumental the first year in organizing it and helping give it initial traction the first year. Attendance over the years has been excellent with dozens of teams participating from Utah, Nevada, and Idaho. We look forward to another excellent year.”
