Information for Directors of Sectional Basketball Tournaments


Sectional basketball tournaments must be completed by Saturday, February 2, 2019.  The winner of each sectional tournament will advance to the state championships.

 

Financials

The admission prices for Sectional basketball tournaments are set at the following amounts:
$6 – high school age students & adults
$5 – K-8th grade students (children younger than kindergarten are free of charge)

Host schools will be required to submit a financial report to TMSAA via their TSSAA Portal account.  TMSAA will receive 18% of gate receipts.  Expenses, including officials’ payments, must be paid from the remaining gate receipts and then any leftover amount is to be divided among the participating schools.

Host schools may retain all money from concessions and parking, should they choose to charge for it.  Parking fees should not exceed $5 per vehicle per day.  Host schools may also handle negotiations with a t-shirt vendor.  In order to use the TMSAA logo, schools should contract with Eagle Sportz by calling (770) 607-6611.

 

Officials

3-person crews will be required for the championship game only, however we encourage the use of 3-person crews whenever possible.  Officials must be paid by the tournament director from the gate receipts.

 

Game Ball

Wilson is the official ball sponsor of TMSAA.  Sectional tournaments must use the official Wilson game ball and hang provided Wilson signage in the gymnasium for the duration of the tournament.
