$5 for each adult per night … college coaches, high school students and children free. The gate fee is to help offset the cost of field rental. Please let your parents know to expect the gate fee.
At Rockhurst, all spectators will be required to be in the stands on the East side of the field. No non-participants are allowed in or around the driveway area on the West side of the field. In past years, we had a challenge with spectators sitting behind the benches. Please emphasize that the West side is for players and coaches only.
If your team’s fans are sitting on the West side, you will be asked to request they move to to spectator seating.
Each team is responsible for the behavior of its spectators. Verbal abuse of officials, players or coaches will not be allowed. Please remind your teams and spectators that good sportsmanship is required.
Each team is responsible for keeping its own scorebook. The highest seeds’ scorebook will be considered the official scorebook. Disputes will be settled by the league-provided field manager or ranking board member.
Each team can have two people at the scorer’s table (one to keep the book and one to spot). No coaching from the scorer’s table please.
No concession stand is planned. Outside food is allowed into the stadium.
A trainer will be provided by the league at no cost to the participating teams.
The games will be played in rain. 30 minute delay for lightning. All efforts will be made to play the games as scheduled. As a last resort, organizers may move game times and days as required by weather or unforeseen circumstances.
The schedule was developed with an eye toward avoiding major schedule conflicts for teams. However, if a team is unable to play a scheduled game, the losing team from its previous game will advance in the bracket. For instance, if Team A defeats Team B in round one, but Team A is unable to field a team for round two, Team B will advance to round two. If one of the top 6 seeds is unable to play its first game, the seventh place team in the standings will be invited to play in the tournament.
Volunteer opportunities … free admission for volunteers if they are scheduled in advance:
Admission gate … need 2-3 people per night to work the gate to collect gate fees at Rockhurst. League to provide table, but bring your own chairs.
If you have volunteers, please send names, what they volunteer for, email addresses, and available days to firstname.lastname@example.org. The goal is to have volunteers work for at least one night (two games) instead of game-by-game if possible.
Let’s finish strong everyone!!!
