Parents, Coaches, Players we need your help. Parents please volunteer to run the clock, or keep the book. Be careful allowing children to do this as when a discrepancy occurs it is unfair to the child.
To Everyone: for the last games at the gyms, please pick up all garbage left behind…and take some time to fold some chairs. We are going to be moving a ton of people thru these facilities this week, and we need to make sure that we clean up after ourselves. Keep track of siblings, no unsupervised students should be wandering the halls of the school. We can use the gym and the concession area only.
One final reminder, Parents and coaches, this is not the world championships. Let’s make this about the kids and let them have fun If you are expecting NBA style of refs at a fifth grade basketball game…then you will be sorely disappointed. We are out here to teach our youth the skills and the fundamentals of Basketball. Part of that is good sportsmanship. We all must lead by example…if we are arguing with the refs or yelling from the stands we are not setting a good example for our youth.
Only one team is going to win at each level…which means nearly everyone will go home sooner than they would like to. Please keep your expectations in check..!
ANY UNSPORTSMANLIKE LIKE CONDUCT (PARENTS, COACHES, PLAYERS) WILL BE MET WITH EXPULSION FROM THE EVENT...NO WARNINGS…..ZERO TOLERANCE
This is a very big tournament with a lot of moving parts…being put on by all volunteers. Please be patient with our refs and coaches. Let’s have some fun…!
