The Reebok Showdown Series is a new event for 2012 that brings the opportunities and excitement of the Headliner Try Outs to a team concept.
Directly following the Reebok Breakout Challenge, Reebok will host the Reebok Showdown Series Finals – an 88 team tournament during the live period on July 13-15 at Philadelphia University. The tournament will be broken down into a 24 team Super Bracket, a 32 team 17U Bracket, and a 32 team 16U Bracket.
The Finals in July will consist of ‘at-large’ teams that have been invited based on their performance at various events through the spring and summer. Teams can also directly qualify by advancing through one of six spring tournaments. 32 team Reebok Showdown Series qualifying tournaments will be held in the following locations:
Houston April 20-22 (Pearland Texas Classic)
New England April 13-15 (Northeast Hoop Festival)
Every team that participates gets the following:
- Free set of team shoes (limit 10 per team)
- Top individual players will be invited to the Reebok Breakout Challenge July 10-13 in Philadelphia
- Top finishing teams will be invited to the Reebok Showdown Series Finals July 13-15 in Philadelphia
The registration fee per team is $450 and must be paid via credit card or PayPal upon registration. There will be no entry for the Finals in July for teams that advance through the spring qualifiers.
Each team will be guaranteed 3 games and the format will be pool play followed by bracket elimination.
Each 32-team field will consist of 16 17U teams and 16 16U teams.
