Latest Event Update(March 30, 2020)

Based on feedback from our participating clubs, as well as the everchanging landscape of the corona virus situation, we have made slight improvements to our rescheduled Mizuno Lone Star Classic dates. We have consolidated the event into 2 weekends allowing us to move it back a week to help with the health and safety of our players and all involved.  We understand that this might change the response you provided us via the online form, and if that is the case for you, we ask that you let us know those changes via email to events@austinsportscenter.com. This has been a very unique tournament season and we appreciate you all for remaining patient and understanding as we work through this. We believe this breakdown of teams and weekends will provide everyone with the best possible tournament experience.

Rescheduled 2020 Mizuno Lone Star Classic Dates:

Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas:

  • May 30-June 1 = 11s, 12s, 13s, 14s, Tour of Texas 18s Finals (11 Club & TTx = Sat-Sun)
  • June 6-8= 15 Open, 16s, 17s, SWBT Championships (Boys) (Boys = Sat-Sun)

Austin Convention Center:

  • June 5-7 = 15 American, Club, Select, and USA.

Please note the different venues and event date in Austin.

The tournament hosts will create new AES events and transfer over all teams into the same division that they were previously accepted. Previously accepted teams will not need to submit any information other than your roster when we near the event. If you have already notified us about not participating in the rescheduled dates, we will drop those teams at this time. If you have any requests for division changes, we will be able to evaluate what space will be available those weekends once we complete the above process. Please email any requests to events@austinsportscenter.com. We anticipate registration for new teams to open on Friday, April 3rd.

Hotels for the Rescheduled Dates

The Mizuno Lone Star Classic will be enforcing stay to play for these rescheduled dates. To date all reservations that had been booked for the original LSC dates have been cancelled. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your original reservations, please email em2housing@em2housing.com.

EM2 Housing is in the process of setting up the new inventory for the new dates and will open on April 15 at 8AM CST. If you previously had a reservation booked through EM2 Housing for Lone Star Classic, the AES booking fee will be waived for your new LSC reservation as long as we can verify record of original reservation
