Our shootouts provide a great opportunity for you and your team to be able to compete and gain valuable game experience. Register Now

We are offering four sessions this year. In each session, you will also have you an opportunity to take part in the overtime tournament following the last game of your team's session. This is a great teaching tool for both you and your players. All of your games will be played either in our Dow Fieldhouse , or on our home floor in Kresge Gymnasium . One of your games will also be video taped by the Albion staff and sent as a downloadable file to your email.

This would also be an excellent opportunity to have several of your athletes seen by the Albion College coaching staff. If you have any additional questions or would like to register you can call me at 517/629-0516, email at dcarden@albion.edu, use the form below, or print off and mail in the brouchure .
