IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHECK IN ON JUNE 25TH – 14’s/15’s AGE GROUP:  Due to circumstances out of our control, we will be moving Team Check-In on June 25th for the 15s Age Division to an off site location from 3PM – 10PM. Because of the Ford Firework Show in Downtown Detroit, there will be multiple street closures and heavy foot traffic. Teams will still be able to check in their 15s at the COBO center on June 25th from 10AM – 2PM, however we will be moving to the offsite location starting at 3PM and will be there until 10PM to help alleviate teams trying to get in to downtown during this time. Teams will most likely need to take alternate routes to get to their hotels on this day because of certain street closures.

OFF SITE LOCATION FOR TEAM CHECK IN ON JUNE 25th (starting at 3pm – 10pm)

Hilton Garden Inn Detroit Metro Airport

31800 Smith Rd

Romulus, MI 48174

If your 14’s team is playing in the afternoon wave on June 25th please arrive early as people begin to line the streets starting around 12pm for the fireworks show.  Please expect delays leaving the COBO Center.

Update:  All streets south of Fort St. will be barricaded and closed for the Fireworks as early as 6 p.m. and as late as 8 p.m. Please Click Here to see the full traffic plan for Monday June 25th.

Detroit Police Department will be enforcing a curfew on June 24th and 25th from 6pm-6am for anyone under the age of 18.  All minors must be accompanied by an adult during these times and must have their credentials/tournament wristbands on them at all times.
