Breaking:AAU, TN end throwball agreement

AAU Throwball Director John McGee and the TN Officials have ended AAU throwball due to continuing disputes regarding the ongoing pandemic and the future of the game. After the 2021 AAU Episcopal Major Spring Break High School Tournament was cancelled due to the disputes, no decision could be made. The future off offseason high school throwball is unclear at this point other than Off-Season High School Regionals, which are always set for August. Thus, tournaments sponsored by AAU are cancelled in Syracuse, Los Angeles, Naples, and Spring Lake. (Note: Throwball News or “TN” is the governing body of throwball, owns the TV rights to everything, and is a blog for anyone wondering). New TN Officials will be voted on following the TN Spring Meetings in the middle of May.
