This year's Dennis Lafata Gateway Boys Festival Bid Event will be using Advanced Event Systems for its registration process. AES will be the website that is the choice of USA JNC Girls Championship, National Qualifiers, Regional’s, and many other events throughout the country.
The Capitol Sports Center staff will send out broadcast emails to inform you of other information and steps as they come available.
Entry fees must be received with completed entry form to be accepted into the tournament by January 23, 2018. This event is open to all teams USAV, JVA, or AAU, however, rosters do need to be submitted online by the roster deadline.
