The Home Team on Saturday is always the higher seeded team. The Home Team is the official scorebook. The visiting team must provide an adult clock operator. Clock operators should attempt to get a basic understanding of the clock before their scheduled game. See the tournament director, Colin Williams, for assistance.
Once a game has ended, the clock will be set for a 15 minute warm-up period. The tournament host will provide announcements and starting lineups before each game.
Note: It is imperative that everyone who is not involved in the current game stay off the court at all times!
The Team Sportsmanship Award and Third Place trophy will be handed out immediately following the third place game.
The First and Second Place trophy will be awarded immediately after the Championship Game. We will conclude the tournament with the doxology following the first place trophy presentation.
