2nd Annual Mom and Pops Tournament

STM Parish welcomes you to our 2nd annual Moms/Pops basketball tournament at STM gym on the weekend of February 27-29th (exact dates and times to be determined by the number of grades participating in the mens and womens’ brackets, but likely to include games Thursday, Friday, and Saturday—However for any one team, you will play two of those 3 days and not all 3). 

We want you to play for your oldest child.

Men and women teams will be separate and tournament arranged according to number of players per grade (we want as many as possible).


The clock will stop normally; 6 minute periods; there will be practice times in the weeks leading up to the tournament (but this is mainly a friend raiser for the parish).

There will likely be opportunities for friends of STM and graduates to participate, so please get peoples names that are interested but do not have a child in those grades. They will be apportioned to teams as fairly as possible (but likely not on your team).


Costs will be $40/player or $500/team (more the merrier/more the cheaper). There will be referees, a scoreboard/defibrillator/beer--anything that is needed.

Kids welcome and usually love getting to heckle their folks!


Basic rules/idea are:

Each grade has a team (if not enough people for mens or womens' side, we will group grades intelligently).


Winners and consolation brackets (so all teams guaranteed 2 games)

Ideal Brackets:

1st grade vs Kindergarten/8th grade

2nd vs 7th

3rd vs 6th

4th vs 5th


Thursday and Friday nights: 1st round games. 

Thursday is empty bowls.

Friday, KOC will have their fishfry (first Friday of Lent). 

Saturday morning (if needed): 2nd round games. 

Sat afternoon 2nd/3rd round games.

530 mass

7p Womens final (swaps order every other year)

8p Mens final 

We plan to have a food truck for Saturday night.
