    The 14-year-old daughter of former Chicago Bulls star Corey Benjamin who was filmed sucker-punching an opposing player during a youth basketball game apparently has a history of on-court violence. Another amateur video has emerged showing the girl throwing punches and attacking players during a different tournament game in Carson, California back in September. The incident prompted the organizers of the tournament, a company that goes by the name ‘Swoosh,’ to ban the girl and her team from competition. ‘When I realized that it was associated to the first fight, that I actually witnessed in person, it was devastating just because it’s as if this girl is kind of just out of control,’ Swoosh director Tisha Mcafee told KTLA-TV. Walt Disney Privacy Policy Corey Benjamin played three seasons with the Bulls, but finished his career overseas Benjamin’s daughter has also been banned from Avac United, the organizing group that hosts youth basketball games for kids between the ages of 13 and 16. Benjamin's daughter has not been identified by name because she is a minor.  The ban was put...
    07/20/2021 Act. At 12:47 CEST After the new proposals for football were unveiled, thus surprising many of the spectators and professionals of the ‘king’ sport, there was a rumor that they were already being implemented in a youth tournament in the Netherlands, but FIFA has been in charge of denying it. Through a statement posted on their website, they have stated that have no intention of testing these new changes. In turn, as reported, these changes have not been discussed internally. On the other hand, the tournament would have decided to apply these rules By own decision and without IFAB approval. This is the statement: “FIFA want to disprove erroneous reports which have circulated in the press in recent days regarding FIFA’s alleged intention to carry out experimental tests of changes to the Laws of the Game in a youth tournament played in the Netherlands “. “FIFA confirms that currently you have no intention of testing the changes to which these reports refer; likewise, the changes have not been discussed either...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One of Minnesota’s signature events is back after a year off due to COVID-19. The USA Cup youth soccer tournament is welcoming teams from all over the country to Blaine this week. Almost 800 teams from 17 states will participate. Sara Soli with the National Sports Center says the 700-acre facility will host all the games. “People are just really happy to be back on the fields,” Soli said. “Parents are happy to cheer their kids on.” Scott Wade, the team manager for his son Jack’s Minneapolis United team, was thrilled to be back Monday registering the team. (credit: CBS) “They didn’t get to play in tournaments last summer,” Wade said. “Typically at this tournament there are over 1,000 teams, you know, in all the age groups, and one of the things the boys love is, in addition to the competition, they trade pins with the other teams. And so they meet lots of different kids, they have a lot of fun.” COVID removed the international teams from this year’s tournament, but overall, restrictions at the National...
    With his NBA season over, LeBron James instead seized the spotlight at a recent youth game when a public address announcer ostensibly suggested that his 16-year-old son, Bronny, was getting preferential treatment from officials because he was playing in a gym renamed for the Los Angeles Lakers star. James is missing just his second NBA Finals in the last 11 years, and has taken advantage of the time off by attending Bronny's under-17 AAU tournament in his native Akron, Ohio, usually standing on the baseline and yelling out instructions alongside the other parents. In Bronny's most recent appearance, however, James went a step further by interrupting the game to approach the scorer's table in disgust at the PA announcer after a foul was whistled on the court. Although the gym's PA system can't quite be heard, the web telecast's play-by-play announcer explained that: 'LeBron took offense to the announcer saying [Bronny is] going to get those calls in [James's] gym.'

    An opportunity for the California Dawgs 12-and-under baseball team to play in a tournament at the Cooperstown All Star Village in New York was lost last summer when the pandemic wiped out virtually all youth sports activity from coast to coast. To make up for it, organizers in Cooperstown invited the Lamorinda-based Dawgs and other teams from across the country to return to the area this year for an inaugural 13-and-under wood bat tournament held earlier this month. “It was fun, a good change of pace,” Dawgs player Cody Michlitsch said of using wood bats instead of aluminum. “We had to make some adjustments, but it was fun. It also makes a nice sound off the bat.” Dawgs coach Tony Dudum said each player brought along two or three wooden bats and purchased others after they arrived in the Cooperstown area. “Any time there was a hit or a foul ball, the kids got excited. ‘Hey, did you break your bat?’” said Dudum, a Campolindo High graduate who now lives in Lafayette. “It was a great...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia youth baseball team is pulling from the Cooperstown Dreams Park tournament this summer. The Roxborough Outlaws made the decision to withdraw from the tournament after Cooperstown Dreams Park announced it is requiring all players, coaches and campers ages 12 and older to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, when it becomes available for adolescents, in order to participate in its 2021 tournaments. Cooperstown Dreams Park is in Cooperstown, New York and is known as the “Greatest Tournament In America.” It offers a high caliber of play for kids 12 and under.

An additional 17 cases outside Santa Clara County also have been traced to the tournament, officials said in a news release. “This outbreak is a troubling reminder that the widespread prevalence of COVID-19 in our community threatens all of us, and does not limit itself to geographic boundaries,” Dr. Monika Roy, Santa Clara County’s assistant public health officer,  said in a statement. “Public Health orders, directives, and guidance around contact sports and sporting events are in place for a reason. The risk of transmission in these settings can easily result in community spread that threatens the most vulnerable among us.” County health officials said the tournament violated local and...

    A youth football coach from Savannah has been given a lifetime ban from a nationwide sports organization after video surfaced showing him repeatedly slapping a player on his nine-and-under team during a recent tournament in Florida. American Youth Football (AYF), the self-described largest youth football and cheer organization in the world, responded to the video by banning Savannah Gators coach Gerrell Williams for life and giving the viral footage to the Osceola (Florida) Sheriff's Department. Although there have been reports that Williams was charged for the incident, the department website has no record of any being filed. The viral cellphone video, which has drawn criticism from LeBron James and retired NFL star Shannon Sharpe, shows Williams winding up and slapping one of his player's twice as the boy ran off the field. The second slap knocked the child to the ground. The age of the boy has not been revealed.   The viral cellphone video, which has drawn criticism from LeBron James and retired NFL star Shannon Sharpe, shows coach Gerrell Williams (circled) winding up and slapping one of his...
    Hundreds of kids are expected to attend a soccer tournament in Arizona that’s hosting 500 teams amid the ongoing pandemic. The annual Desert Super Cup is being held over the Thanksgiving weekend in Phoenix where the soccer teams, in-state and out of state, are participating, CNN reported Wednesday. Will Humble, executive director of the Arizona Public Health Association, called the timing of the tournament “foolish.” “It’s incredibly bad timing. I can’t think of a worse time to do something like this. What is so foolish about this is that we are now in exponential growth of the virus,” Humble told the Washington Post. “I don’t understand why city staff would approve something like that given the circumstances that we’re in.” The games also will be held in Mesa and Scottsdale. Players, spectators and coaches are expected to follow strict guidelines such as socially distancing and doing a self-temperature check before arriving to the sports facilities, according to FOX10. The Phoenix City Council hasn’t canceled the tournament even though it has the power to do. “Absolutely fantastic news,” councilmember Sal...

    ROCKLAND (CBS) – A coronavirus outbreak has been traced back to a youth hockey tournament in Rockland. Town health agents are trying to figure out how far it spread. On October 2, the Bavis Arena in Rockland hosted a youth hockey event. Seven teams from seven towns participated. When the day was over, everyone went home. Then Covid-19 cases started popping up and contact tracing started. “We were able to notify the Rockland community that were affected by this outbreak,” said Delshaune Flipp, Rockland’s health agent. In Rockland, so far, five coaches and players have contracted COVID-19. In Marshfield, the Daniel Webster Elementary school discovered cases, and went to remote learning. “The contact tracing that we have been doing, which has worked very well through the state, has tracked the cases that were identified at the Daniel Webster School back to this event,” said State Rep. Patrick Kearney of Marshfield. Some town officials believe there was a lack of concern among coaches at the rink that day on October 2. “Everybody needs to take responsibility and remember...

    Should the hoops go on? Despite state guidelines prohibiting youth sports competition amid the coronavirus pandemic, organizers in Placer County have scheduled an AAU Showcase basketball tournament this weekend at a facility in an unincorporated area near Rocklin. It won’t be the first controversial tournament played at the Courtside Center this summer. “All I know is it’s like one of the only places that you can actually play a game in Northern California,” Moreau Catholic boys basketball coach Frank Knight said Friday. “I think that’s what’s generating the buzz. I have never been up there. But I heard it was going on.” Placer County officials have tried to dissuade teams from participating, posting signs on the facility’s doors stating, “Sports tournaments are not allowed at this time.” But those signs were torn down at an earlier tournament and the games, which have included players from the Bay Area, went on. State championship-winning high school coach Lou Richie of Bishop O’Dowd didn’t mince words: “We’re in the middle of a pandemic and people are making money off kids playing sports. That’s...
