January 12-13, Woodburn/Aurora Venues
I accidently scheduled a division on Sunday night that would have required a team with a 2+ hour commute to play at 6 pm. I had to make some minor changes to a variety of divisions.
No Saturday times are impacted; please note your potential times on Sunday may have changed.
The schedule for this weekend in Woodburn/Aurora is now posted on our website:Oregon Amateur Basketball
PLAYER ELIGIBILITY-Players cannot swing between teams. Everyone is restricted to 1 team only. A younger player may no longer "play up" to an older team and play at his/her grade level on the same weekend. He or she must pick 1 team and play with them all weekend Any exceptions to this must be approved by our office prior to 6 pm Friday night.
ADMISSION -Players and 2 coaches are admitted free. 3rd coach pays; Scorekeeper pays. Adults: $6; Seniors & Youth $5. 10 & under; Free. Cash & Check only.We do not have the ability to take credit/debit.Please make sure your parents are aware of this.
SCOREKEEPERS -All facilities this weekend will provide volunteers to run the clock. These are volunteers from the schools we are using. It is a good idea to have a parent sitting at the table with them keeping their own book to head off mistakes. If there is a discrepancy, the referees are instructed to take input from a book at the table. They are instructed to ignore a book that comes off the bench or out of the stands.
TEAMS WILL PLAY 2 GAMES PER DAY. IF YOU CANNOT FIND BOTH YOUR GAMES, PLEASE CONTACT US.
ONLINE STORE -The latest OAB Gear can be found on our website:http://www.wholesale2uapparel.com/OAB/Check it out!!!!
FACILITIES OPEN –Courts will be available for pregame warm-ups 30 minutes before the first game. Do not show up early. You will be denied entry while we are setting up.

As you will note, I am using Exposure Events this year to schedule and run tournaments and am still working out a couple kinks. If you have any issues with the site, please feel free to call me at (541) 517-4160.

I CANNOT BE MORE CLEAR ON THIS:I NEED OFFICIALS MORE THAN I NEED TEAMS. Parents and coaches are not to confront an official for any reason after the game. Doing so could be a barrier to your programs participation in future events; refunds will not be given in these instances. If you have issues with referees, read below. Make sure your parents have this information. Yes, I will drop teams from tournaments and ban teams from future events with no refund for parent conduct.
COACHES -All of our officials are OSAA or NCAA certified. If you have issues with our officials, please note the time of game and court. Call me Monday to discuss the issue. Ido not deal with referee issues in the gym. Do not call me about officials during the weekend; you won't like the answer I give you. I can't waive a magic wand and make them better; nor will I move officials to a different court.
That said, You guys are my eyes and ears and I value your opinion as coaches. I want to have the best referees on the court as possible. I need to know who the weak officials are and who the strong ones are. This way, I know who to retain and who to let go. You have a voice, you just need to use it in the right, respectable way.
PARENTS -If you have an issue with a referee, you must direct it through your coach. Parents or coaches who confront an official after the game will be banned from future games/events.
My staff and I look forward to hosting you this weekend.
