10/11 UPDATE: The schedule for the girls volleyball tournament has been released! Good luck to all teams. Also, team registration is open for boys and girls basketball. Coordinators have two more weeks to register teams, enter gym availability, and submit team schedule conflicts.
The schedule has now been released! All coordinators were sent an email on Monday 10/8 giving them the opportunity to confirm their gym schedules. REPORT YOUR TOURNAMENT SCORES IN A TIMELY MANNER. Teams are advanced through the tournament based on a score being reported. Good luck to all teams!
NEW this year is a physical bracket which shows teams as they advance through the tournament. In years' past, we displayed a static bracket which showed the game times and the first round matchups. This new bracket will show the teams as they advance through the tournament (scores must be logged to advance the teams on the bracket) and will also show the scores of completed games. Please note that this is not a responsive bracket and while you can view it from a mobile device, it is best viewed from a computer or tablet. Horizontal and vertical scroll bars are available to help you view the entire bracket. In some cases, the consolation game is not displayed on the initial view of the bracket. You can view this by scrolling to the right. All brackets have a consolation game.
Also new for the fall volleyball season is a way to easily locate the bracket your team is playing in. Choose the Find My Bracket link, enter the last name of your coach or your entire team name, and a listing of teams in your bracket will appear along with their seeding and record. You can easily click on the bracket name to display the physical bracket.
Check out the links below. You can also access this tournament information from the Post Season Tourney option on the Schedule menu.
Basketball team registrations will close on Tuesday. If you'd like an idea how many teams were registered per grade/skill level or by parish/school, click on the buttons below to view some high-level registration metrics. Please note that when teams have been assigned to divisions/pods, we will publish the team lists and they will be available on the Standings page.
Here are a few notes about the tournament and how teams were seeded. Also, please remember a representative from each parish listed needs to pickup their trophies at All Saints on Wednesday, October 17th. We will be holding a basketball meeting that evening so if your parish is represented at that meeting, have them pickup the trophies. If your parish boys basketball coordinator cannot attend that meeting, then please send someone to pickup your trophies. They will be available between 7pm and 9pm.
Here are a few things to keep in mind for the tournament:
A meeting will be held at All Saints on Wednesday, October 17th at 7pm to finalize the placement of boys 6th-8th grade teams into Levels 1 through 5. During the registration process (which closes on 10/16), coordinators should be registering for a specific level for each team but during this meeting we will validate all of the registrations and make sure everyone is in the right place. All boys basketball coordinators who have teams in 6th-8th grade should attend this meeting. Dave Caldwell will be reaching out separately to girls coordinators via email.
As a reminder, volleyball tournament trophies will be available for pickup for those hosting championship and consolation games on Sunday, October 21st. Information on the trophy pickup and placement meeting will be emailed to all coordinators this week.
