Coaches & Parents,

Important note about parking at the PAC facility this weekend. Obey all parking signs that are posted in the parking lot.

*Do not park in spots that reserved for other businesses in the area (these will be marked with a cone).

*Do not park beyond signs that say "No PAC Parking".

There is an overflow lot up the street if the parking lot is full.

Last weekend, there were a couple volleyball families that had cars towed; the basketball families have generally been very respectful of the parking situation, but please be aware other buisnesses in the area are protective of their parking.

Coaches,

We inadvertently left a team off the schedule that was qualified and registered. We added them to the field and had to make some minor adjustments to the schedule.

All updates have been made. Please check the website and app for any changes.

SPECTATOR CONDUCT

WE NEED OFFICIALS MORE THAN WE NEED TEAMS: Yes, we do drop teams from tournaments and ban then from future events with no refund for parent conduct. 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 or even completing this event. Refunds will not be given in these instances. If you have issues with referees, read below. Make sure your parents have this information! You are responsible for the conduct of your players and spectators! Referees are instructed to issue technical fouls for spectator behavior!

COACHES - All of our officials are certified. If you have issues with our officials, please note the time of game and court. Call me Monday to discuss the issue. I do 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 once we have sufficiently built up our numbers. 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 or verbally abuse an official during the game will be banned from future games/events. In some instances we will drop teams from the event with no refund for that event or any future events due to parent conduct. This is not negotiable. You are responsible for the conduct of your spectators. If anyone from your team verbally harass our officials, you run the risk of getting ejected from the gym. I will not entertain conversations of "they need to have thicker skin" or "what I said wasn't that bad....". You open your mouth, you take on the risk associated with it.

We look forward to hosting you this weekend,

Coaches & families,

IT'S TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your girls have a had a great season and it's time to cap it off with the State Tournament.

Here is a rundown on what to expect this week.

SEEDING - Polls have been sent to seeding committee and those are due back by midnight tonight (Sunday). We will tabulate results and post them to our social media channels Monday evening or Tuesday.

BRACKET REVEAL -Brackets will be revealed throughout the day on Tuesday. This will all be done on the State Tourney Instagram Page.

SCHEDULE -Schedule will be posted on Tuesday evening.

FRIDAY GAME TIMES - Games will start as early as 3:30 pm on Friday. I know that's early and may involve some missed class time. We are going to try to limit this as much as possible based on geography and how seeds come out. In order to run a true bracketed event, it does require more games to be played and for that to happen we need to start games a little earlier than some may have hoped.

FRIDAY-SUNDAY - Best weekend of the year!

MONDAY (or soon thereafter) - All Tournament nominations will be sent to coaches. They must be returned by the end of the week.

FOLLOWING WEEK (or soon there after) - All State ballots will be sent to coaches with the nominations from the tournaments. Coaches will vote on 1st, 2nd & 3rd teams (depending on nominations).

MID-TO-LATE MARCH - All-State teams revealed.

We're looking forward to hosting everyone this weekend!
