Best in the West Spring 2021 Cancelled

Coaches, I tried to push this as far as possible but unfortunately we will have to cancel the Best in the West Winter Classic for the first time in 14 years. Although it does look like things are beginning to open up and a potential season is on the horizon, hosting a tournament with current restrictions, club issues, having multiple teams at various venues, traveling over counties lines and multiple sports at venues does not seem like a realistic possibility during the current school year. It was my hope we could host this tournament in the spring but sadly that never really seemed to materialize with California metrics and the pace in which youth sports have been dealt with. With that, I would like you to mark your calendars for the winter season for the Best in the West. I feel strongly we will be back to our normal sports season/calendar by next year and we can get back to competing in the Best in the West. For the 2021/2022 season, The Best in the West Winter Soccer Classic will be held on December 11th and 18th. I will send contracts toward the end of the school year, so no need to worry about those right now. I would like to thank you all for entering the tournament (twice) this year and hope to have you join us again in Winter of 2021. I would also like to thank all the host sites for putting in the work and time to have your sites ready if the season/tournament happened. Hope to see you and your athletes out there this spring and then in the winter. If you have any questions, do hesitate to contact me. Stay safe and healthy. Good luck this season!
