TUC's 5th annual All-Star Challenge showcases the top players from TUC summer leagues. Throughout the Summer season, captains are asked to nominate players as all-stars from the opposing teams that they play. From this, we create a divisional all-star team from each league night, for both the competitive and intermediate divisions (recreational team players are eligible for the intermediate division). Participation is by invitation only and is based on total all-star nominations over the course of the season. Within each division, all teams will play a semi-final game where the winners will advance to the Finals game. All our All-Stars go home with a souvenir VC dry-fit jersey!
This years event will also feature the 3rd annual TUC Legends versus TJSL All-Stars game, which will bring together some of the best junior talent in the city against the ol' vets and Hall of Fame members of the club. Legends team has won the previous two years, will 2012 be the TJSL all-stars time to breakthrough?
Lastly, this year we will be showcasing the TUC Monday & Wednesday Summer League Championship Finals at the All-Star Challenge! The two teams who emerge victorious in their semi-final matches at the Monday & Wednesday Competitive Summer league playoffs will return on September 15th (Redi vs. Sweet) in front of fans and the Rogers TV cameras to battle for the title. We hope lots of TUC members, family and friends come out for this amazing final!
Our Monday League Competitive Finals will also be aired on Rogers TV along with the Wednesday Competitive Summer league final. Be sure to catch these games on TV and tell your friends to do the same. We need good ratings to keep Rogers coming back!!! Air times are posted above.
