SUB-STATE TOURNAMENTS
Postseason tournaments will continue this week. Class 1A-DI and 1A-D2 started their quarterfinal games last week. There are games being played every night this week in some class. That means officials are very busy, please make sure you take care of them and communicate about arrival locations and where to park. Some have not been at your facility before for contests. Make sure you have someone to escort them on and off the court and a safe, clean place for them to change. Good luck to all teams as we wind up a season that in November, we were not sure we would be able to complete. Thank you to our schools, officials and fans for taking the precautions necessary for our student-athletes to be able to play games this year.

SUB-STATE ATTENDANCE LIMITATIONS
The maximum attendance allowed at sub-state sites is 50% of the available seats. Each sub-state site will need to determine what 50% capacity is for their facility. If school districts or county health departments have stricter regulations those must be followed. The host school should communicate with the visiting school how many spectators from each school will be allowed. Some schools will use vouchers, some are using pass gate lists, some are using GoFan tickets.

Before going to a sub-state site make sure you check with the host about the availability of seats/tickets. All tickets are $7.00 for the sub-state tournaments. All games are separate contests, there are no double header games. The facility will be cleared after each game to allow for cleaning. A ticket (if available) will need to be purchased for each game a person wants to attend. Masks must be worn properly by all in attendance.

Social distancing is required. Therefore, student sections will not be permitted as they have been in the past. If students are in attendance, they must be socially distanced which will reduce the total number of seats permitted. Only those that live under the same roof are permitted to sit together. Others must be socially distanced.
Below is the format information for each classification.
