Junior Boys Tournament Information

Boys Tournament Format

  • Coaches Meeting: 8:30 START Time
  • Tournament START Time:  9 am
  • Check-in should be completed at the tournament desk prior to 8:30 am. A picture ID for each coach on the roster is required along with a medical release form for each player on the roster. A current SportsEngine roster is required to be signed and turned into the site director for use at the tournament. There is an 8 point penalty to the team's first match if the coach is not checked in BEFORE 8:30 am.
  • The coach is to have recorded the temperatures of all those present (including coaches and the designated spectators) on the roster prior to check in.  The names of the designated spectators should be handwritten on the roster. 
  • Rosters are required to have correct jersey numbers. The rosters will be checked off by the site director at check in.
  • Format - Teams are straight seeded into divisions of 6, 7 or 8 and separated into 2 pools within each division.
  • For tournaments 1-3: Pool play only.  Once pool play is completed, the best 2nd place and best 3rd place of each team in the corresponding pools of the division will be determined by set or points percentage. The best 2nd place and the lower 3rd place teams will move. The lower 2nd place and best 3rd place will stay in the divison for the next tournament. 
  • For tournaments 4 & 5 (if allowed) Pool play will be followed by a cross-pool match of th ket play. Following this tournament 3 teams will move up and 3 teams will move down a division for the next tournament play (unless the next tournament is the Region Championship).
  • Match play is best 2 of 3 sets to 25, 3rd set to 15, if needed. Ties will be resolved by the standard procedure: 2 way tie = head-to-head; 3 way tie = set % (sets won / total sets played), then if needed point % (points won / total points played) -- at no time will head-to-head apply in a 3 way tie.
  • Please note: for any 7 team division, the 3 team pool will play auto 3 sets to 25 (if one team wins the first 2 sets, the 3rd set will not be considered in set % and point % calculations in the event of a 3-way pool tie).  This is not optional.

IMPORTANT TOURNAMENT INFORMATION - PLEASE READ!

  • COVID-19 Restrictions The health and safety of our participants is first and foremost in our minds as we set out on this season. Restrictions will be in place until such time as COVID-19 is no longer in the pandemic stage. These restrictions are to preserve the health and safety of our participants as well as allow the facilities we use to remain open for business. Those violating any of the restrictions will be asked to leave the premises and not return.

SPECTATORS: Each team is restricted to a maximum of 3 spectators. Spectators are designated for the entire day - they may not be switched out between matches. Active coaches and players on the roster and in attendance do not need a wristband. Everyone else in attendance is considered a spectator and must have a wristband.

TEAM CAMPS: Team camp areas should be restricted in size to provide social distancing and allow for the players and coaches to be present in the team camp.

MASKS: Everyone who comes into the gym must wear a masked at all times.  This includes the players actively playing on the court.

 

TEMPERATURE CHECKS: Coaches are required to record the temperature of each person on the roster and who is present on game day. The temperature recordings are to be turned in at check-in.  

  • Spectators will be required to have their temperature taken - and name and contact info taken - for contract tracing purposes. The names of the spectators for the day will be written on the roster and checked at the door.

ReminderCoaches, you are responsible for bringing your own team medical kit consisting of medical supplies and ice packs. Sites are not responsible for providing these amenities. Site directors can only call 911 in the event a medical emergency occurs.

BOYS TOURNAMENTS

TOURNAMENT FORMAT AND NO COACHES' MEETINGS

GAME DAY ATTENDANCE: PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament PRIOR to Saturday."No-Show" teams will be fined $100. Teams who do not show up for tournaments create a big scheduling problem at the site location.

With the COVID-19 protocol canceling the Coaches' Meetings at our tournaments, some teams look at the format and realize they play 2nd and are not checking in a half hour prior to start. This makes the team late. Teams not checked in a half hour prior to start time risk being formatted out of the event as a no-show.
  • Coaches - please have your teams on site and ready to play at the start time even if they are to referee first round.  A "no-show" at start time will change the division format immediately.  Everyone needs to be ready to play.
  • Coaches you must be available during ref assignments to help with scorekeeping and officiating.

 

PURPLE CARD POLICY

  • Purple Card Policy is in effect.
    • COACHES: You are responsible for your parent's behavior.

TEAM CAMPS

  • COACHES: You are responsible for your team camp are cleanup.
  • Trash and failure to follow facility rules are THE major sources of reluctance of athletic directors to let us use gyms. We need to do a much better job keeping food and drink, (including coffee and coolers), out of the gyms and taking our trash home!
  • Gym facilities are one of the most difficult parts of putting together a successful season. To that end, we MUST treat them with the utmost respect. Treat all facility personnel as if they have the authority to ask you to move your stuff because they do.

Keep your coffee, food and coolers outside.

NO COOKING OF ANY KIND This includes crock pots, hotplates, Sterno heated chafing dishes, barbeques, and anything which produces heat, etc., on the premises

Pick up all the trash around your bench area and your "camp" area

NO ALCOHOL on site

Please leave your televisions at home. 

PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT!
Due to the amount of trash accumulated and left at tournament locations, the AZ Region has enacted a pack it in/pack it out policy. 

Whatever is brought to a tournament should be packed up and taken home to recycle, reuse, or dispose of at their own residence.

Site directors are spending more and more time cleaning up, facilities are spending more money for additional trash pickup following our events. This policy will help to reduce waste and trash at AZ Region events. In this day and age of "green", let's all do our part!

Food and beverages in the gym policy enforcement.
Any participant and/or spectator found with food/beverages (except for water in closed containers) in the gym will incur a 13 point penalty for their team in their next match

A report will be filed with the AZ Region Office.

Further violations by the same team will result in a $200 fine for each occurrence. The fine must be paid before the team will be allowed to continue participating.

Trash bags

Please pack up your trash and take it home for disposal.


Water bottles on floor behind athletes' feet

Please recycle your plastic water bottles and remember your water bottles.

FRIENDLY REMINDER 

City police departments enforce parking restrictions at many of the playing sites. 

Please park legally each day - especially on Mondays - as many businesses in the surrounding areas are open for business.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN MAKING THIS A VERY SUCCESSFUL SEASON.
