ECHO Nationals are going to be held in 2011 at Blade Runners in Pittsburgh, PA. Block Scheduling, Host Hotels and other information will be coming out the first of the year.
New this year is the Travel Lite(Grass Roots) Division. The Travel Lite Series includes all ages 6U-Adult. It is for house league/recreational teams and programs. The Adult Division will be the equivalent of a Beginner’s or Bronze Division. No elite teams and players are allowed in the Travel Lite. It is strictly monitored. There are no qualifiers for this division. Teams/Programs that are interested will have to make contact with Bob Boucher prior to registering to provide validating info. about their team. The block scheduling for the Travel Lite will follow the same block scheduling for the traditional travel teams. Age determination is December 31, 2010. Any team who fits the decription of a Travel Lite team is welcome. Bob Boucher will make the decision whether your team qualifies based on the information that is provided.
