You’ve made it! Without all of your hard work and sacrifice, your Team would not be here.
This is the Provincial Championship! We strive to make this the best possible experience for your players and their parents. For many, these Provincials will be the first and the only Provincials that your players make, so we do all we can to make this as memorable as possible. We all know how hard it is to get to the top level in any sport at any age level. Please participate in all the extra activities and give your players that get recognized at the Awards Presentations a chance for peer recognition. This year we will be making Team Awards right after the games BUT individual awards will be presented after the Championship Final.
While your Game Director is the boss of the Game and responsible for its presentation to the Teams and the fans, you are responsible for your Game and all aspects of the conduct of your players, assistants, managers and fans while at the Provincials, both on and off the court.
Absolutely no inappropriate language or conduct will be tolerated. In the case of any inappropriate behaviour, as deemed by the Tournament Chairman, one warning will be given; an additional warning will result in a Tourney expulsion with an immediate call and report to your school’s administration.
These are your Responsibilities;
a. Remind players of conduct, only 1 warning will be given.
b. Players should have shirts tucked in when entering and during the game.
11. Bench Supplies
a. Ice water in water coolers is provided at the end of each bench. Please have your players bring their own water bottles that can be filled from the coolers. They are topped up after each game.
b. Ice chests are provided at the official’s table with bagged ice for any cooling required.
c. A large trashcan is provided at the end of your bench.
d. Bring extra towels for water spillage.
e. Bring your own basketballs for warmups, make sure they are marked.
a. Prior to the handshakes, see the Game Director at the Scorer’s table for all-star recognition on the Game Report form. Each Coach selects two players from each team for all-star voting. That selection is based on the game that was just played.
b. After the handshakes, have your team line up at their bench until the Player of the Game presentation is completed, which will occur immediately after the handshakes at center court.
c. Quickly please ensure your team bench is clean, water spills cleaned, trash collected, and team chairs straightened up for the next team, (did we say quickly? as the incoming teams will be waiting for you).
13. Specialty Events
a. If your player enters these events, he is expected to know the rules. They can be found on the website. We have a short amount of time to run through the eliminations and we will only answer clarifications not run through the rules. Coach, please take the time with those players of yours that go in these events.
b. If your player enters the eliminations, and makes the final 4, he is expected to participate in the final round.
c. The player will be given a chance to participate in any of the eliminations even his team is playing when the specialty event is scheduled, and his game is not finished yet. We will fit him in right after his game ends.
d. Please let a Tourney Director know in advance, if there are any time conflicts.
Please respect Opening and Closing Ceremonies and Presentations as well as entries into the Specialty events. If you make the Provincials, please participate at all levels; it will be a better experience for your players. Your attendance is expected at the Awards Presentation.
If that is a problem for your team, please contact Michael Pettifer or Rob Slavik prior to completing your Team Registration if you wish to discuss this.
