11th Annual Mtn Dew Blast
The Mtn Dew Blast will offer multiple levels at all birth levels in each division, focusing on parity. NHG will take into consideration travel distances when scheduling. Generally, teams will play one game on Friday (no games before 1:00), two on Saturday and one game on Sunday. Schedules will be available 7-10 days before the event. The Mountain Dew Blast is an Open Division Tournament and not designed for strong, established AAA programs. This is one of the largest AAA tournaments of the season and fills up quickly…so, reserve your team’s spot today!
