“Coaches and Scouts,

We (the Bay City Warriors) are a San Francisco based program with a 14 year history of sending players the to the D1, D2, D3, NAIA and Juco levels. We will be entering two teams, Bay City Warriors 17s Showcase and Bay City Warriors 17s Blue in the following tournaments in July:

  • 7/7 – NorCal Summer Preview at Chabot College in Hayward, CA
  • 7/11-14 (NCAA sanctioned) – WCE Summer Classic at American Sports Center in Anaheim, CA. We will be at this event all four days and play 2 games each day
  • 7/25-28 – Las Vegas Big Time Tournament

We have a roster of great players who are all good students including several who are interested in High Academic colleges. All of the players are 2020 prospects. Three of the players are joining us for the summer including two from Prep Schools out east and a 2019 (Wrenn Robinson) who is going to do a PG year and is now a 2020. I have written a little summary on each player below but please feel free to contact me to discuss them in more detail. I have also attached a roster with phone numbers.
