Dear Coach,
Welcome to the 2019 MAYB National Tournament. We are amazed at the quantity and quality of teams we have this year. We have 1020 teams from 23 states entered this year. It will be an amazing 4 days of basketball. Please take the time to read below and stress to your players and fans.
First of all, there can be only one champion per division. If you walk away from this event with a championship you will have certainly earned it. We believe this is the way it should be. There will be mistakes made. Refs will miss calls. Coaches will make bad decisions. Players will miss shots. I hope we can all remember the great competition that is about to take place. Step back and observe. It is amazing. In that respect we ask you all to maintain proper behavior through the good and the bad. We can not tolerate inappropriate behavior.
Remember, all teams must check in and verify their rosters. There are no exceptions. We are grade based. Check packets you have received for information regarding check in locations and details. The main check-in will take place during the skills competition for both boys and girls (South Farha-Boys and The Hive-Girls). Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
It is important to check schedules after each game. Wall brackets will be updated as well as all games available on the tourney machine app. Please see the direct schedule links below. Each year we end up with teams missing games. Plan ahead. Double check. Know where you need to be and when. With so many teams it important you plan ahead.
All coaches and fans will have arm band passes. Please wear these and the weekend will go much smoother. Gate workers will place the bands on each person through the door. Prices for admission are listed in your packets.
Each team is required to provide a scorekeeper or clock operator for each game. We have had great success with this. It is harder to yell at your own person, but please do not put kids in this situation. It is unfair to them if adults are yelling at them!
Lastly, we hope you enjoy the tournament. Things will not be perfect. There will be amazing teams here. Great competition. When everything has cleared there will be one team per division who finishes 1st but to get there they will have had to fight through a great field of teams. Enjoy!
