Dear Parents:

The tournament schedule/bracket was just released. The brackets for each tournament are below, as is a summary of rules and the schedule.

Varsity Volleyball Bracket Varisty Basketball Bracket

Overall (from the League Director)

  • Both days of the tournament will be held at Immaculate Heart Academy. (Magee, East of Oracle)
  • Student-athletes must be in full, correct uniforms (jersey w/correct number, solid shorts,  proper shoes, WHITE socks).
  • Tournament is quasi-double-elimination. 
    • Once a team loses, they cannot get back to the winner's side of the bracket.
    • Teams can still earn higher placing until they lose a second time.
  • I will work on a schedule for table duties.
  • I am requesting that ADs do NOT keep score during the CHAMPIONSHIP game for either basketball or volleyball- you should be readily available to help coaches and/or address parent/spectator issues.
  • Absolutely no signs, no bullhorns, no pompoms, no balloons, etc. will be allowed in the gym (as stated in our handbook). One warning will be given. If it is not corrected, individuals will be told to leave.
  • Please note: No food or gum is allowed in the gym. Food can be eaten in the dining area or outside.
