We would like to cordially invite you and your sons to the Annual John Paul II Tournament at Everest Academy April 28th-30th.
The JPII tournament is a ConQuest event that is held yearly in honor of Saint John Paul II. 4th through 8th grade boys from Everest Academy and other schools around Clarkston, MI, as well as teams from out of state, participate in this annual tournament. Mass begins each day and the competition follows. These events promote a spirit of healthy competition, camaraderie among the boys, and an atmosphere that is Christ-centered.
Here is what you need to know.

Each team must have a coach who is at least 18 years of age. In the Young Division,it is recommended that the coach should be a Dad. Each team may have more than one coach if necessary.

No team, therefore, will be allowed to participate in the tournament without a coach. The boys will forfeit a game if their coach is not present.
