Thanks so much for participating in what promises to be the best summer event around.  As you look at the schedule a few adjustments that were necessary. First, there will be a couple of games on Monday that will be ran on the small courts in Northside.  There will be 1 game starting Monday June 22 8am at Laney. Games will begin in some locations on Tuesday June 23 at 8am as well.  Please pay close attention.  Lastly, some of you will have 4 games on 1 day and 2 games on the 2nd day.  Not many teams will have that set up, but a few will. An even smaller amount of teams will indeed get 7 games in pool play.  Every team will play at Laney, except a small few, those being mostly 1 day teams.  If you did not go through Laney as a 3 day member, you will play at Laney for the playoffs on Wednesday June 24.


Teams will be put in Gold, Silver, and Bronze brackets in the playoff system on Wednesday for 3 champions. You will be put in the playoff bracket by your finish in the pool play. 
Remember I need a roster with grade level, height, jersey number, and possible post high school players distinguished.  If they are being recruited or offered please list that as well for the college coaches in attendance.
The schedule is complete except for extreme circumstances.  Its simply impossible to accomodate every teams request.

Last Year we had 55 men’s teams 16 women’s teams with 3 great days of basketball. We have an expectation of at least 70+ teams participating this year.  The FLI Invitation has proven to help teams and coaches enhance their team’s development.  The competition level is “second to none” with area teams as well as teams from Greenville, Raleigh, and Fayetteville.  Once again with Big Shots it is starting to become a national event.  College coaches are in attendance every day scouting players; we had at least 15 colleges in attendance as well as Juco Junction, Phenom Hoops, and Big Shots recruiting services.

  •  What are they saying?

"We are already making plans to come back next year," James Robinson, Smithfield Selma Head Coach

"Most competitive Jamboree we have played on. It will help us prepare for next season. Well organized event and look forward to next year." Patty Evers, Head Coach - East Bladen High School

"The FLI provides teams a great opportunity to play against competition on your level that you don't see during the season. It's affordable and a huge savings for those without a big budget to work with when compared to attending team camps at a college campus. The FLI works with Big Shots and college coaches help get your players recruited and on the map! We've been to the FLI since it started and will continue to go every year!" Kent Blooms Garner High School NCHSAA State Champs
