Hey, soccer fans! Emily here. We’re about halfway through the fall season, and there are TONS of cool things going on at our club. In this blog, I’ll tell you all about our upcoming tournaments (there are two!), spring registration, and a few memories made so far this season.
First of all… IT’S ALMOST TOURNEY TIME! BASC has two awesome tournaments coming up in less than a month. The first one is Tulsa Open! Our competitive division, TSC Hurricane, also has a tournament November 17th through 19th, which is the Tulsa Friendship Cup and the Adidas Sam Shannon Showcase.
The Tulsa Open tournament is October’s premier competitive tournament, and we’re proud to announce this is BASC’s inaugural year of this tourney! BASC has hosted many competitive tournaments over the years and we’re excited to add Tulsa Open to our club. It will be held at Indian Springs Soccer Complex on October 27th, 28th, and 29th with each team playing at least three games. We have teams from Oklahoma and multiple other states signed up for Tulsa Open, so we’re looking forward to all of this soccer fun!
Something extra special about Tulsa Open is that a portion of proceeds will benefit the Tulsa chapter of Susan G. Komen. So, this tournament isn’t just about playing. It’s about giving back to our community and being part of a greater cause. And while this is a competitive event, recreational teams looking for more competition are welcome to play!
Registration for Tulsa Open closes on October 17th, so hurry and get registered before it’s too late! You can register and learn more at www.tulsaopen.org.
Another great tourney coming up is our 36th Annual Fall Recreational Tournament! This will be November 10th through 12th at Indian Springs Soccer Complex. All recreational teams ages U6 to U19 are invited to this tournament, so be sure to register before the October 31st deadline. There are some fun new things going on to get kids excited about this tournament, like Flat Finley!
So, who’s Flat Finley? He’s our new friend here at BASC! Flat Finley likes to watch BASC tournaments, especially the Fall Rec Tournament! 😉 Flat Finley is an interactive way to have some extra fun at soccer games, tournaments, and around different places in Broken Arrow.
Basically, you just print and cut out Flat Finley and take pictures of him (or take selfies with him!) at different places. Instructions are available here. We have a full-color version you can print by clicking here, or you can click here to print a coloring page. It’s a fun way to share memories this season. Get creative with your pictures and share them on social media using #BASCtourney. We can’t wait to see where Flat Finley goes!
Among all of the tournament prep, we’re also preparing for spring registration! Players can sign up for the spring season THIS WEEK! Registration officially begins at www.bascok.com on Friday, October 13th.
As you may know, there are several benefits for signing up early. If your player is registered before the deadline, you’ll remain with the same team, you’ll avoid late fees, AND you’ll be ahead of the game. Don’t worry; there’s plenty of time before the deadline! Spring registration ends on January 13th.
And finally, here are just some of the great pictures we’ve received from soccer fans throughout the season. Remember, you can always share more memories with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter by tagging us or using #BASCgames. See you all on the pitch!
