The event will start with a double-header Thursday night at Memorial Stadium and will end with a game Saturday at Providence Day.
The first game of the Thursday night double-header is between Sun Valley and Hough at 5:30 p.m. Sun Valley played in the event last year, losing to Charlotte Christian.
The late game Thursday night, scheduled for 7:45 p.m., will be between N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association Division I state champions Charlotte Christian and N.C. 4AA state champions Mallard Creek.
Both teams finished undefeated last season.
"It's a big step up for our program and we're looking forward to it," Charlotte Christian coach Jason Estep said.
Providence Day will host Charlotte Catholic at 7 p.m. Saturday in the event's final game.
Three of the six teams will have new head coaches when they kickoff the season: Mike Brodowicz at Charlotte Catholic, Miles Aldridge at Hough and Tad Baucom at Sun Valley.
