SABC Board President, Peter Scott says, “The Sutton Early Bird Tournament is an annual highlight of the youth travel season. We are excited to welcome teams from all over southern New England to come and sharpen their skills and team play as a warm-up before their regular game schedule begins. We aim to make this a competitive, well run, safe and fun event, in a pristine athletic facility. We are confident due to past demand that slots will fill quickly, and encourage town travel coaches to register as soon as possible to guarantee a placement in their division. 
We recognize that in a time of rising costs when athletic directors and programs are constantly challenged to do more with less, this fundraiser is a critical initiative for the Sutton Boosters to raise funds and help support our year-round program needs. From long term capital projects like helping to buy new scoreboards, or smaller requests, like covering co-op costs and purchasing new pitching machines, we are dedicated to doing whatever we can to make the competitive playing experience at Sutton High School for all athletes the best it can be, and to demonstrate our pride for all of their hard work and effort to represent our town.”
