  • Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated. If a coach or player is ejected from a game, they will be required to miss the next game. (this is an IHSAA rule) Coaches are in charge of themselves, their players, scorekeeper and fans. We are teaching young people to show respect and we should all show respect to others. (We do not want to penalize a team for the actions of fans, but coaches and scorekeepers are part of the team) Officials are in charge of the gym. Show them the respect they deserve.
  • Players, fans, and coaches must remain in the gym areas and hallways connecting the gyms. Areas that should not be entered will be clearly marked. Any players in these areas will not be permitted to play any more games in the tourney.
