Down East Showdown Tournament

Down East Showdown TournamentThe Down East Family YMCA invites you and your team to participate in the first annual Down East Showdown Tournament. This tournament will provide your team an extra opportunity to face great competition and play competitive games.

The 2022-23 season isn’t too far around the corner. What better way to put the work you and your team have put together throughout the summer workouts; than in a competitive tournament.

It is our hope that we gather enough interests that we can have a varsity division and a junior varsity division. We pride ourselves on providing a positive and exciting environment while teams are competing at a high level; preparing for their school season through competitive games together.

It will be our pleasure to host you and your team! Follow the Down East Showdown Facebook page to stay informed.
