How We Schedule

Huge demand combined with lingering COIVD and facility restrictions have resulted in the largest Waiting List in the 24 year history of the GymRat CHALLENGE. We have re-configured our format and schedule to allow as many teams as possible into the event, but even with those measures, the Waiting List has climbed to 154 teams.

COVID restrictions are causing us to have to eliminate the Championship Round from this year’s event. Because we love the competitiveness of the Championship Round format, this will NOT be a permanent change. PLEASE do NOT call our office to tell us why the Championship Round should remain in the event. That’s not necessary, because WE ALREADY FULLY AGREE WITH YOU! This is simply a modification that we need to make as some COVID policy restrictions continue to linger. When COVID is fully behind us in 2022, the Championship Round will return with its full level of intensity.

All teams will receive a three game guarantee. We are working diligently to balance each pool in order to provide the most competitive match-ups during the event, so that our Evaluation Team can view players in the proper competitive alignments.

Games will begin as early as 8:00 AM on Saturday and run one hour and five minutes apart with the last tip on Saturday coming at 10:05 PM. The first tip on Sunday will be at 8:00 AM with the final games of the event tipping off at 5:45 PM on Sunday.

Chec-ink

TEAM CHECK-IN will take place at the site of your first game.  At the time of CHECK-IN, we will need to know your team hotel, number of rooms you’ve booked at the hotel property, and whether your team checked in on Friday or Saturday. PLEASE BE SURE TO ARRIVE AT LEAST 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST GAME.

Recruiting Index

Report

The GymRat REPORT: The 2021 GIRLS GymRat CHALLENGE Event Report will be released and posted to all GymRat RECRUITING INDEX accounts on Friday, June 18th. The comprehensive 60+ page report includes an event re-cap, as well as the announcement of ALL-GymRat selections and evaluations in all Age Divisions for one of the summer’s biggest, most competitive, and most respected basketball events.

In addition to being available to every college coach in the United States through the GymRat RECRUITING INDEX, the GymRat Report is also available to all players and parents through the player’s GymRat RECRUITING INDEX profile. An ENHANCED Profile subscription is required in order to access the GymRat Report.  CLICK HERE for more information and step by step instructions on how to view the GymRat REPORT.

The GymRat Report is the most extensive report provided by any basketball event in the nation.  The GymRat Report is prepared by the 70+ person GymRat Evaluation Staff that is on-site throughout all GymRat events. The Evaluation Staff is comprised of expert current and former professional, college, and high school coaches, professional players, and media members. To properly evaluate during the event the GymRat Evaluation Staff is assigned in a matrix to cover all teams in all division.  ALL teams at ALL Age Divisions of the GymRat CHALLENGE are viewed at least twice by at least two different GymRat evaluators.  That way, no player is judged on a single performance or on the opinion of a single GymRat evaluator.

All evaluator notes and communication are compiled into the annual GymRat Report. This comprehensive 60+ page report details ALL-GymRat performers and event highlights for all Age Divisions of the GymRat CHALLENGE.

There is tremendous activity with the GymRat RECRUITING INDEX system throughout the year as college coaches track and contact players. Players with ENHANCED profiles  have the ability to see exactly what college coaches are accessing their profiles as well as the use of the powerful communication tools built into the GymRat system.  The GymRat RECRUITING INDEX is the most targeted and effective basketball recruiting profile service in the nation.
