The Boot Classic IV – Feb 6th

Madera vs. Harding vs. Kensington vs. Fairmont

The Annual Unofficial Invitational Kickball Tournament between Kensington, Harding, Fairmont and Madera: The Boot Classic is back! TBC IV to be held on Saturday, February 6th, 2016 from 9:30 – 2:00 at Madera Elementary School’s Lower Yard looks to be another very exciting day. Last year’s champs, Fairmont Elementary will look to repeat their success, while Harding’s class act of garnering the Silver Sneaker looks to challenge all by taking home both the Boot and the Sneaker.

The Boot Classic IV is an Olympic system or knockout tournament and each school is to field their own team. Much will be the same as year’s prior, with a minor rule addition that stipulates that defensive players may not crowd the infield – extended detail to that in the Rules of Play. I would also recommend that each school, in addition to team captains, also appoint a student team manager to handle the roster, buttress coed representation, assure fair play and carry the flag for school spirit.

It’s encouraged that all teams to put 25 kids on the their respective rosters. This being the first weekend of February a lot students may run into scheduling conflicts, and more kids signed-up will equate to greater participation and increased school representation. If you need or want more players you are welcome to, provided that everyone listed on the roster gets to play. Ultimately, this is the kid’s game and we hope that all the players have a great day out and that the coaches, parents, alumni and friends bring their best behavior and good cheer.

We may also be getting rain this year – which really hasn’t been an issue so far, but all should note that we will take the date as it comes.

As an added bonus – this year Madera has contracted a taco truck from 9:30 – 12:30! “Tacos-Tado” will have it’s full menu available but please remember to bring your wallet – their food is delicious, but it’s also not free. Please bring warm clothing, blankets and/or camp chairs.

We look forward to seeing you on the 6th!

Play Ball and Good Luck,
