Coaches,

Today is the last day to nominate your players for all-state consideration.

Nominations can be done here

All-State Polls will go out to coaches over the weekend. I know this is still a couple weeks away from publication, but we want everyone's performances to still be relatively fresh in your heads as you are filling out the poll.

Thank you everyone for your support of the Boys D1 State Championships!

Coaches,

As the tournament is winding down; thank you to everyone that makes this such a fun event to run!

This year we compile an "All-State" team based on all-tournament nominations. All-State teams will be posted to our social media pages near the end of March.

At this time, we need all coaches to submit their all-state nominations here:

Boys Division 1 All-State Nominations

Please get these in by Thursday morning.

We will be sending a list of nominations out to coaches by the end of the week. Coaches will vote on all-state teams based on nominees provided. Results won't be posted for a couple weeks, but we can voting to be done while the kids performances over the weekend are still fresh in your heads.

Thank you again for making this a great weekend!

Coaches,

It's almost time!!!!!!!!!! We tip in about 24 hours!

Before the tournament starts, we want to highlight a couple things to keep in mind.

ALL-STATE TEAMS - At the conclusion of the event, we will send out a form for coaches to nominate a few of their players for all-state consideration. When nominations are complete, ballots with all the nominee's will be sent out to all coaches for all-state voting. All-state teams will be posted to our social media pages at the conclusion of all the state tournaments.

3-POINT CONTEST -The 3 point contest will run Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 pm. Drop in at either time during the day at the Pac Community Center.

HOODIE PRE-ORDER - As mentioned in the previous e-mail; our hoodie booth is extremely busy and we do our best to keep up with it. Please pre-order to cut down on wait time and guarantee what you want is in stock!

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,

-Nick Larsen, Steve Adams & Hemingway Huynh

Coaches,

SEEDING - All seeding has been done and will be posted to the State Tournament Instagram page soon. We are going to ignore all complaints abour seeding. These were compiled and voted on by a 12-member committee across the state. Comparing resumees won't get you anywhere. Something is always going to be messed up with seedings. If you don't like your seed, prove it on the court.

BRACKETING -We are working on bracketing across all divisions. As brackets are completed, they will be released to our social media pages.

SCHEDULES -Schedules will be posted to the Exposure site and Exposure app by 11 pm tonight. Obviously we'll post sooner if possible.

GAME TIMES - Teams must plan to play all 3 days. Games will start as early at 3:30 pm on Friday. Games will not be scheduled to tip off after 6:30 pm on Sunday. You must be prepared to play at any time within that window; we are not accepting time requests. I know the 3:30 pm tip off is a little early for some families with work commitments and it will involve some missed class time. Unfortunately, the popularity of this event dictates that we need to get 6 rounds of games in on Friday: 3:30, 4:40, 5:50, 7:00, 8:10 & 9:15 pm tip offs get us there.

ALL-STATE TEAMS - At the conclusion of the event, we will be sending all-tournament nomination forms out to coaches. We will compile all the nominations and send them back to coaches to vote on All-State teams. All-State team results will be posted to our social media pages near the end of March.

We are looking forward to a great tournament this weekend!
