Following the decisions announced a short while ago by the Governor of Maryland, the Cherry Blossom Tournament has been CANCELED. Obviously, it is with great regret that we make this announcement, but I think everybody understands the issues we all are facing. Information regarding refunds will be posted here, likely on Monday, March 16.
All information below pertains to "last year's tournament", and is maintained simply for reference purposes:

Please know that a tremendous amount of effort was put into avoiding coaching conflicts in the schedules. Nearly 50% of all teams submitted schedule requests or had coaches with multiple teams, meaning that many flights had several teams within a given flight that made requests, making the de-conflicting process even more challenging. Nearly all requests were satisfied, though there were a few that could not be completely resolved. If you have asked for consideration as a coach of multiple teams, please review your teams’ games to determine if you may have a conflict. Many flights will not have a firm Sunday game matchup until they have completed both Saturday games, and standings have been updated. This made de-conflicting those Sunday games virtually impossible. All coaches of multiple teams should be prepared to have an assistant coach step in if it becomes necessary. We are unable to make changes to the schedules once they are posted.
