WCE25 Colorado Tournament of Champions Recap

Colorado Tournament Events

The 2nd Annual WC25/WCECO Tournament of Champions played host to 44 middle school teams from California, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.   The Colorado event gave us an opportunity to scout the local talent as well as neighboring state talent that will help us finalize our team rankings (culminating in Anaheim, CA on July 3-5 at the WCE25 Championship Event –  http://opengympremier.com/services/tournaments/championship) and the final roster invitations for the 3rd Annual Ballislife Junior All-American Camp taking place on July 31- August 3 – http://opengympremier.com/services/camp/bil-all-american . 

Our final impressions: The 2019 Class is loaded w/ talent. The Colorado Hawks and Billlups Elite are both Top 12 teams on the West Coast. The Oakland Rebels 2020 squad owns Colorado as they won the event for the 2nd time in a row and will certainly move up in our rankings. 2021 Billups Elite will improve on their Top 10 West Coast Ranking – more importantly for them, they play for a coach that will enhance their team and individual development. The 5th Grade New Mexico Dogs won it again to prove they are worthy of a Top 20 ranking on the West Coast. New Mexico fans were the loudest and proudest in Colorado. The 4th Grade Billups Elite is another team that showcased their talent and will move into the Top 10. A big shoutout to our partner and Tournament Director, Anson Ramiro, for putting on another great event that was only made more memorable by the Saturday “Blackout.”  We look forward to the 2016 3rd Annual WCE25 Colorado Tournament of Champions – http://www.coloradotourneys.com.  Team Scores and Results can be found at: https://scorbot.com/Games.aspx?tid=844
