The scholars, accompanied by Mr. Riley Huston (BHGHNY's Community Service Coordinator), arrived at Poly Prep at 8am, helped hang signs, set up displays, and arrange tables for the event. They then proceeded to their individual duties. Devonte and Kevin filmed highlights at each goalie box, Stéphan phoned in substitutions to the announcer, and Admir recorded important or exciting moments in each match. When the event was over, the scholars assisted with the clean up, breaking down the tent and loading the equipment into trucks. As a reward for their service, the scholars received tickets to the NIT Season Tip-Off tournament at Madison Square Garden.
