We're happy to announce that the 2021 BOYS GymRat CHALLENGE is set for (Friday & Saturday) July 2-3, 2021. With vaccines rolling out across the nation, and after weeks of consultation with public health officials and our government relations team, the informed decision has been made to move the event from it's traditional Memorial Day Weekend slot to later in the summer in order to enhance the safety of all participants and ensure that we are meeting all public health and governmental re-opening standards. Our outstanding competition venues will once again include the beautiful Times Union Center and the state-of-the-art Albany Capital Center.. WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THE TREMENDOUS SHOW THAT WILL BE THE 2021 GymRat CHALLENGE.

If you're receiving THIS e-mail, that means you had a team that was registered to compete in the COVD-cancelled 2020 GymRat CHALLENGE. As promised, you have received a full-credit for entry into the 2021 GymRat CHALLENGE and all of your 2020 registration information has been automatically carried over in our system to the 2021 event, SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO RE-REGISTER THOSE TEAMS FOR 2021.

Continued Success.

With college coaches limited by COVID in their ability to watch prospects live, we've been working with them to launch recruiting tools and platforms that are like nothing else on the market today. The most exciting of those tools is the best-in-class interactive ADVISORY LEVEL of the GymRat RECRUITING Index that provides direct consultation for players and parents with the GymRat Advisory Board comprised of respected former college coaches that have spent their careers evaluating players in order to offer scholarships and/or roster spots at all levels. Among the components of your consultation is game film review and a written evaluation from a GymRat Advisory Board member. Unlike other services they may provide unqualified feedback or simple social media posts that chart a path to nowhere, the GymRat RECRUITING Index Advisory service is designed by basketball “lifers” to honestly and accurately identify each player’s potential recruitment level by providing REAL feedback from REAL college coaches in REAL time.
