Red River Classic

Red River Classic

UPDATED: March 13* @ 5:15p
Red River Classic Week 1 & 2

We have finally been able to gather information from the State of Louisiana and the convention center regarding the situation regarding the Covid 19 virus.  Thank you for your patience.  I know this is a very stressful time for everyone.

We are in the process of securing space to move the event to either May 16/17 and/or May 23/24.

The housing bureau will be in touch with the hotels to cancel the hotel reservations, you will not need to take any action.

We understand that your season may be over, but we encourage you to extend a few weeks so that your kids can experience this event.  Traditionally a lot of teams are done by then; however, these are not traditional times.

Our survey this morning was very mixed, we have some people very passionate that think we need to cancel and on the other side saying we should not panic.  I feel it would be very hypocritical of me as the Commissioner of the North Texas Region to recommend that events be postponed and not follow that direction.  Please understand I am not trying to disappoint anyone.

We will work hard to make this the best Red River yet, we will also open up registration if you know of teams that would want to participate.  Please email me by Wednesday night and let me know if you are able to attend or not.  We will base the dates and divisions on the feedback to best accommodate as many as possible.

Again, thanks for your patience and understanding.  Please get this info to your parents asap, I know there is some real anxiety.

RED RIVER CLASSIC UPDATE: March 12
First of all, I want to thank everyone for their patience. We are in constant contact with the Shreveport Convention Center and with the Sports Commission who are monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 Virus. At this point, we do not have a final answer for the event but know that there are hotel deadlines that need to be met tomorrow.  We will do our best to have an answer by tomorrow so that teams/parents can make plans.These are very difficult uncharted waters and we want to do what is best for everyone involved.
Please share this information with your parent asap, I am not able to keep up with the volume of emails at this point and could certainly use your help.
