Game Director Duties & Responsibilities

Thank you for helping to make this a fair, enjoyable and successful event for the players, coaches and fans.

The Game Director (GD) is the Boss of the game and responsible for its smooth running for the Teams and for the highest Championship level presentation to the players and fans.  These are the Grade 9 Championships and for many of the Players and Coaches this may be the only one they may get to in their high school career.  Let’s make it great!

The GD controls all aspects of the game, from the pre-game, the game and the post-game activities.  The GD duties include Game Report, pre-game Referee and Coaches meeting, supervising minor officials, keeping the floor clear of non-competitors, introductions, ensuring the restocking bench supplies, music during the breaks, and ensuring the cleaning of the bench area and stand cleanup.  Everything about and around the game is the GD’s responsibility.

The GD should arrive near the end of the previous game and assist the earlier GD in wrapping up to allow a smooth transition to the next game.

Once set-up at the GD Table, the GD (with any of your assistants, including the Gym Director) oversees the following;

Coaches and Players – Know the Rules

If you enter these events, you must know the rules.  We always have a lot of participants and a limited amount of time to run through the eliminations.  We will only do a quick rule review, then we start.

  1. If a player enters the eliminations and makes the Final 4, the player is expected to participate in the Final 4 on Sunday.
  2. The player will be given a chance to participate in any of the eliminations even if the player’s team is playing when the specialty event is scheduled and the player’s game is not finished yet. We will fit the player in right after the player’s game ends.
  3. Please let a Tourney Director know in advance, if there are any time conflicts.



  1. Open only to players of teams that have made the Tournament.
  2. Two entries per team.
