THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS FOR STEPPING UP!
Greetings from the 2016 Edmonton Invitational Bantam Tournament of Champions!
The Edmonton Invitational Bantam Tournament of Champions will be going into its 37th year this winter. It is expected that 20 teams, from Western Canada will participate in this yearâ€™s tournament. There will be two competing divisions â€œAAAâ€ and â€œAAâ€.
The Edmonton Invitational Bantam Tournament of Champions is an opportunity not only for athletes to showcase their skills and abilities but also an opportunity to gain respect for the sport and build new friendships.
In 2003 the tournament committee introduced a scholarship fund for young athletes participating in the tournament. During the 5-day tournament, $8000 in post-secondary scholarships are awarded to athletes, with an additional $8000 being awarded at the end of the season to two individuals from each of the host athletic clubs. We also give a $1000 scholarship to the referees. To date, the tournament has awarded over $137,000 in scholarships.
The tournament is not for profit with all proceeds going to the EBIT Scholarship Fund, therefore to be able to run such a large-scale event we kindly ask for support through sponsorship. Prize donations, souvenir program advertising, and product donation all make this tournament the success it is.
