Tournament Website (This has the teams that have either filled out the google form or who have registered for the event on USA Ultimate updated today)
State Exception Rule: At the discretion of the Youth State Coordinator, roster exceptions can be made to include players from schools that cannot roster a full 10 player team to participate. This is after these players and/or partial teams have demonstrated a full effort to recruit players and form a team from within their own school. This all will occur at the discretion of the Youth State Coordinator each season and previous season decisions will not be considered precedent setting. All roster exceptions will formally be communicated by Youth State Coordinator in advance of the competition.
We at IYU expect that coaches are promoting the growth of starting teams at schools that players are coming from. The spirit of the rule is that coaches are trying to grow the sport of Ultimate in schools that they are receiving players from. An exceptions committee has been formed and will be used to accept or decline all exceptions.
State Exceptions Form: If you have any players that are playing on your team that are not attending your school, then please fill out this form. If coaches do not fill out this form and do not communicate their exceptions than the team may be disqualified from the High School State Championship. Please fill this out before May 21st.
Thank you for your understanding and your completion of this.
Partnering with GLUE and BICI: We will once again be partnering with GLUE, which will be concurrently running their BICI tournament at the same time as the State Championship. Feel free to go watch some club games during your bye.
That is it for now, more information to come. Good luck this weekend, and in all your league games. Let's hope that the weather has turned the corner after today.
