THANKS FOR A JOB WELL DONE!
Thanks to the 152 officials who officiated at one of 64 Sub-State Tournaments on October 21. The KSHSAA and it’s member schools are appreciative of your time and dedication, knowledge of the rules and commitment to the KSHSAA interscholastic volleyball program.

CONGRATULATIONS TO 64 QUALIFYING SCHOOL TEAMS
Congratulations to the 64 schools who won their sub-state tournament on October 21. Sub-State Champion school administrators & coaches received an envelope from the KSHSAA via your sub-state manager. Please review the enclosed material and pay special attention to information in the 2017-18 KSHSAA Volleyball Manual. A thorough review of the material will ensure a well-prepared experience at the 2017 state tournament.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT OFFICIATING TEAMS
Congratulations to the 48 officials who have been identified to officiate at one of 8 KSHSAA state volleyball tournaments. Each state tournament will have 6 officials working pool play on Friday, October 27. 4 officials will return to work the semi-final, consolation and championship matches on Saturday, October 28. As always, we challenge the officials to be the best tournament team!

STATE TOURNAMENTS OCTOBER 27 & OCTOBER 28
It’s hard to believe we have reached the last week of the season! 64 schools across the state now have their sites on a state title. State pairings were posted Sunday morning (10/22). As a reminder, this is an odd-numbered year, therefore, the odd-numbered classes/divisions (5A, 4ADI, 3A, 1ADI) will start state competition first on Friday morning at 8:30 AM followed by the schools in the even-numbered classes/divisions (6A, 4ADII, 2A, 1ADII), beginning action no earlier than 3:30 PM Friday afternoon. Competition on Saturday begins at 10AM for 5A, 4ADI, 3A & 1ADI. 6A, 4ADII, 2A & 1ADII will begin their semi-final matches at 2PM.

STATE TOURNAMENTS = HIGH EXPECTATIONS BY ALL!
The state tournament is a time when expectations are high for all teams (both schools & officials) to perform at their best level. Hopefully officials and coaches have enforced NFHS & KSHSAA rules and policies of the game throughout the season. Don’t assume - please set your expectations for and enforce the correct procedure for: • Court Protocol (start of match, end of set, split sets & end of the match); • Pro-longed Huddles; • Players shagging balls; • Appropriate behavior & sportsmanship by all; • Bench decorum; • Libero situations & correct replacement; • Substitutions; • Head coach standing & their location; etc.

LIBERO EXCHANGE REMINDERS
With a few encounters regarding illegal libero exchanges at the sub-state tournament, it is important for coaches to review the correct procedures with their players. Officials are expected to enforce the rule. [ Continue ]
