2006 by Ron Harrison

This is not a tournament format but merely a one day event with each team assured of playing two games.  There are five age groups scheduled to play today including a total of nineteen teams.  The Boys 8U has two teams scheduled to play, Central Kentucky Warriors and Hoptown Hoyas.  The Boys 10U division includes Betsy Layne, YMCA Blaze, Louisville Hustlers, and Fleming County Bobcats.  The Boys 11U division includes Richmond Stars, Frankfort, Cougars, Whitley County Red Storm, and Northern Kentucky Knicks.  The Boys 13U division includes Perry County Bearcats, Knox County Knights, Perry County All-Stars, and Betsy Layne.  The Boys 14U division includes Scott County Heat, Greyhounds, Wildcats, and Hardin County Outlaws. 

The Hoptown Hoyas were also expected to field a team in the Boys 10U division, but cancelled.  The Richmond Stars 11U and Betsy Layne 10U each agreed to play an extra game to fill out the schedule.
