Tournament begins on Wednesday, May 19, 2021. All matches will be held at the site of the higher seed. All matches will be single matches—no double headers. All matches will begin at 5:00. There will be no medal presentation after the championship match. Only the championship plaque will be awarded on the court. Medals will be given to the Athletic Director/Principal to be distributed to their team at a later time.
Will fans be allowed in gyms?
Yes, to a certain extent. The Governor has recently raised the indoor capacity to 50% of the total capacity of each facility. Each host school is asked to state the number of people permitted in your facility—this would include teams, officials, etc. Whatever number is left from your capacity, the number of spectators left is to be split evenly (50-50) between the home and away school. If this is not possible, then no spectators will be permitted. The host school can either give tickets to parents, etc—whomever they prefer or provide a list of names that will be allowed into their gym. There will be NO CHARGE for admittance including the District Finals. Host school must contact their opponent and provide the information of how many spectators (parents) they will allow and make provisions with the visiting school as to how parents will be admitted (via ticket or player
Host school responsibilities:
The host school must provide 3 “table” balls along with 2-3 people to work the table—scorer, timer, libero
tracker. There should be sanitization of the game balls by one of the people at the table. The host school will be responsible for paying ALL the game workers including the officials. Please remember to contact both Mike Ognosky and myself with the results including the set scores ASAP after the match.
Warm up balls:
Each team should provide their own warm up balls. Line Judges— As was done during the season, each team will provide a
line judge. That line person will stay on the same side of the court as their team to help with social distancing protocol.
Will streaming be permitted? Yes, as long as no one has to pay a fee or there are no commercial advertisements.
As stated earlier, there will be no medal ceremony after the completed match. Medals and plaques will be given to the
administration of each school to present to their athletes at a later time.
