2021 All-Star Skills Challenge

As you may know, in years past we have hosted the GABL All-Star Classic as a way of honoring players from around the league. Unfortunately, our 25th annual All-Star Classic had to be canceled last year due to Covid-19, and it is unlikely that we will be able to host it again this year as we continue to follow our return to play policies.

However, honoring GABL athletes is something we feel to be extremely important, so this year will be hosting a special event in the form of an All-Star Skills Challenge. All-Stars from around the league will get a chance to compete against each other in socially distanced shooting and skill competitions.

- The All-Star Skills Challenge will take place Saturday, March 5 at our Homefield location in Olathe.

- Each 3rd-7th grade Boys and Girls team will nominate one player to participate in the All-Star Skills Challenge.
(The All-Star nomination process is completely up to each coach, but we recommend having the team vote for a nominee)
