Year End Blend

Special thanks to all participants in any shape or form (player, official, stat keeper, volunteer, spectator etc) who supported the Blendos programs.


2022 was a rough year for me but has ended with several blessings and subtle reminders of why one should remain humble.


I am so unbelievably thankful for my basketball community and anyone who advocates or shows support for Blendos/Blend-A-Rama in any way.


I have been working behind the scenes talking with coaches in preparation of year 2 for the Blend-A-Rama (July 29 & 30th 2023). Last year we had 50 teams participate throughout 4 different age brackets. There is tremendous opportunity to offer additional age brackets/divisions and I'm currently anticipating around 132 teams for year 2.


Last year I set a goal of 200 teams and almost canceled at 50 teams. Looking back the people who participated in the event had a tremendous time and are eagerly anticipating the 2nd annual.


There are tons of organizational improvements that can be made to make the 2nd annual Blend-A-Rama a huge community success!


I have been spreading the word throughout section 4 while officating and I will be following up with schools over the next couple of months but a valiant effort will be made to bring several teams from other areas to compete as well.


Right now I am currently recruiting teams for the following divisions


Boys 6-8

Girls 6-8


Boys 9-12 (No modified experience allowed)

Girls 9-12 (No modified experience allowed)


Boys 13-15

Girls 13-15


Boys 16-17

Girls 16-17


Men's A

Men's B

Men's C

Men's D

Women's A

Women's B


Men's 30 +


Im looking to recruit 8-16 teams per bracket.


special accomodations will be made to offer anyone under the age of 5 free activities to attend during the event.


Im excited and rejuvenated to start fresh.


The work doesnt get done unless you do it
