Coaches and coordinators,
Attached our winter league rules. Please read over them, understand them and have a copy with you at all games. Schedules are in process and are set to be released on the evenng of Monday November 30th. With the Ky Governor closing sports down for the next few weeks there is a chance we may have to make adjustments that may delay the entire schedule being released at that time. We will communicate updates every 2-3 days over the next couple weeks. Thanks
Coaches and Coordinators - a very tentative schedle is posted on Exposure and will be linked later today to our website www.swohiosports.com.

Southwestern Ohio Basketball is preparing for this year's post season tourney. There are several items to communicate.
1. The tourney will be held Feb 28 - March 10
2. It is a one and out tourney. Teams will be moved up and down based on season results.
3. All teams ARE included unless you notify us that your team will not be participating.
4. The tourney will be seeded based on scores reported, although it won't be an exact seeding. Some adjustments will be made to hopefully separate teams from same clubs, same divisions when possible, or teams who have played multiple times already.
5. WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT ORGANIZATIONS WOULD LIKE TO HOST GAMES - SEND GYM TIME AND DATES TO email@example.com by Feb 12th pease.
6. Schedules will be posted Wednesday Feb 24th. Seeds will be based on results through Feb 21st.
7. Coaches will be responsible for paying refs during the tourney.
We want to thank everyone for working together to give our kids a season. Its been a trying year but our kids have gotten to play unlike many other parts of the country. Make sure to trn n any missing scores through this past weekend.
A few of you had emailed me games you could not make throughout the remainder of the year. I NEED YOU TO EMAIL THOSE TO ME AGAIN. I have misplaced the notepad I had them on so as of right now I have no knowledge of games being missed.
Also I have attached the schedule conflict ploicy for this season. Basically we are not rescheduling games this year due to the large number of quarantine ssues, Covid issues and other conflicts. Rather we are filling games with teams that want to pick up games, and then if you want to get that game back pick one up another weekend when available. Also, if you pick up a game it does count toward your record and you do pay the officials. The way I look at it, its extra games in a season se didn't even know was going to happen or not. Thanks
IF YOU ARE GOING TO MISS A GAME FOR ANY REASON THE REMAINING OF THE SEASON PLEASE EMAIL ME AGAIN AT firstname.lastname@example.org
We are missing several scores from the past 7 weeks. You need to look at your schedule and submit any missing scores as this will affect your status in the post season tourney. You can go to www.swohiosports.com and submit them under the LEAGUE tab or email them to email@example.com
I sent out a notice last Monday that final schedules were posted and revisions were made during the Christmas break. I also sent out the conflict schedle policy to due to COVID and other conflicts. I have attached it again. Unless it was a league mistake we need to adhere to this. Also coaches and parents need to get the pdated schedule - we had 4 teams no show this weekend and with the limited gym space we can't afford this. If you do not make a game and no show your team will be fined $50 and you may lose the abaility to play in the post season. PLEASE GET UPDATED SCHEDULES
Coaches - PLEASE READ. This is important we are all on the same page. Thanks
I have spent about 60 hours during the break moving games due to the 102 games affected due to quarantines in December, matching teams up wth better games, home gym time changing in January and February and so on. The final schedules are now posted. There are 4 3rd/4th grade girls crossover games needing added and 2 other games not scheduled yet. Outside this schedules are fnal. Please go on website and Exposure to give your parents updated schedules. I will send out schedule conflict policy this afertnoon for remainder of season.
Last night we posted tentative league schedules for January and February. We wil be doing cleanups to these over the next 3 days and will post final schedules Monday. We know some teams have 8 or 9 games and some teams have 11 or 12. Tere are also occassions where teams play teams 3 times and this will be fixed. This is do to us switching games around the first 3 weeks due to COVID ssues. We have had rearrange 87 games so far due to quarantine.
Also anyone that wants to pick up a game this weekend please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org today as we have several games needing covered this weekend for teams quarantining. I also have some gym time available at Sports of All Sorts in Ky that became available when the Governor of Ky allowed them to open back up this week.
LAST CALL FOR CHRISTMAS TOURNEY - CURRENTLY 128 TEAMS REGISTERED - GAMES HELD AT LANDMARK AND KINGDOM DEC 21 - 31
We are doing some routine maintenance on the schedule. We are preparing the rest of the schedule for release. If you can't access the schedule, be patient. We are trying to keep the down time to a minimum.12/15/2020 5:05 PM
With multiple teams cancelling, due to Covid quaranteening, we have had to make many changes to the schedule. We tried to contact everyone involved, this is just a reminder. We don't want anyone to miss their games.
Download the Exposure App, follow your team. Tell your parents, as well.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
For teams who will be playing a game at McNick, please review this document.
Over the last 48 hours we have had 17 teams thrown into quarantine. We have also moved several teams into the proper divisions. The schedules for December have been updated and locked. There are a few teams we are still trying to get games for that have requested them, along with two teams we still have to cover games for due to quarantine. Please make sure you have the updated schedule. Also the tentative schedule forJanuary and February will be released next Tuesday night once we have an idea on what the Ky governor is going o do for sports played in Kentucky.12/9/2020 2:48 PM
This is THE way to report scores:
Go to our website.
Under the Leagues tab, there is a Report Score button to click.
This opens a form for you to fill out. Date and Time of Game (not the current time!), Gender & Grade of Team, Location of Game, Home Team Name & Score, Visiting Team Name & Score. There are over 100 games each day and all this info is needed to match the score to the correct game game. There is no need to submit the score every day, please be patient - all scores should be posted prior to the next weekend's games. Please do not send emails or texts with game scores. If you represent a gym that has collected scores for the day, and would like to enter them yourself, send Cathi a request (text or email) to be set up.
Thank you for your cooperation!
Updated to show parking instructions (so you don't get towed} and their admission protocol (enter10 minutes prior to your game)
I have received about 300 emails in the last 48 hours. I am trying to answer all of these and take care of all concerns. Tonight I will be sending out additional protocols for certain facilities. As a league we will be requiring masks for spectators (at all times) and for coaches and players when not playing. Temperature checks will be done entering all facilites. Although we are not limiting spectators at all faclities we are highly recommending immediate family members to attend games until further notice. We know sometimes yo need a grandparent to run you chlld to a game but we really want to keep spectator numbers down. We also do not want parents to miss watching their kids play because they cannot find a sitter for their other kids. PLEASE CHECK BACK FRIDAY MORNING FOR ANY ADJUSTENTS TO THE SCHEDLE - IF YOU WANT AN EXTRA GAME THIS WEEKEND OR NEED A GAME EMAIL ME AT email@example.com. I have about 25 games to fill due to various reasons. Thanks
Coaches and coordinators - we are going to release a tentative schedule for the month of December tonight. Please be patient as this is going to be a very trying winter but we want to get the season in for our kids. In the last 24 hours I have had 8 teams request byes for the first weekend due to quarantine. Also just a week ago Ky Governor shut down their gyms for an indefinite time which caused us to lose 388 hours of hike gym time for Ky Teams. We have been making all necessary adjustments this weekend to get started.11/30/2020 10:37 AM
