We really enjoyed the tournament!  It will be memories that last a life time for all of us...We have some younger teams that have been influenced by the experience they had watching their brothers at the State Tournament and are looking forward to Seeing You at State for many years to come.

Our girls had a great time participating this weekend. The tournament was well run and we enjoyed the competition!! We specially loved the US Olympic training center although we would love to have the tournament in Denver next year. Any chance that might happen? Thanks again,

I wanted to let you know that the event this weekend was excellent.  Thanks for hosting.  The venues, competition, and referees were all top notch.  I know this is the first year and I know the event will grow.  The only challenge we had, and I am assuming others as well, was with the timing of the event.  The travel season in IL essentially ends on the last week of February.  With your tournament being played in mid-March, and requiring a qualification, we had to set aside funds in the event we qualified.  We also extended our season by two weeks to play.  I spoke with a few other teams that were qualified and they cited this as a concern.  I hope this feedback might help in some way for next year.  I would recommend to all to play in this tournament in the future.

Now that Vikings United Feeder Basketball Season has official wrapped up this season, I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for such a well run inaugural state tournament here in (Rockford) Illinois. 
We were fortunate to have 4 teams qualify and 3 to actually complete in the tournament and it turned out to be an amazing experience for our players and the parents were pleased.
I see nothing but continued growth and success. Our Vikings United Coaching Staff looks forward to competing next season for an opportunity to qualify and compete for a 2019 State title.

Just want to reach out and say thank you for including the Auburn Trojans in this year's state basketball tournament.  Our 4 teams had a great experience.  Wishing you the best moving forward.

Just a quick note to say thanks for a great tournament experience!  Our team loved playing at the convention center….great energy and fun “extra” things to do like the 3-point shooting contest.  Everything was so organized and well run.  We were next to a team that had a game end early due to a double T.  Sad for that team BUT good to know that the standards of behavior and language were held high to ensure the integrity of the tournament.  All the staff helping at the doors, scoring, etc were very friendly and polite.  In our last game, we had to show our scorebook to correct an error but it was quickly corrected and on we went.  We had hoped to win it all but, oh well…..next year!  We plan to be back.

Thanks again.
