Age and Grade Rules and Exceptions For Top Notch Tournamentz
PLEASE take some time to read this information. The goal will be to implement this rule on January 1 , 2021.
● ALL divisions for ALL Top Notch Tournamentz are grade based. Under these rules, any player who shows current proof of grade (report card, progress report, or school ID) is eligible to play for that grade level.
IF A TEAM IS PROTESTED OR CHALLENGED ( $150 FEE) AND COACH DOES NOT HAVE PLAYER'S DOCUMENTATION, THAT TEAM'S GAME WILL BE FORFEITED. DIRECTOR DOES HAVE A RIGHT TO QUESTION A PLAYER ABOUT THEIR INFORMATION/ DOCUMENTS. WE SIMPLY WANT ALL OF OUR TEAMS TO COMPETE FAIRLY.
We easily average in excess of 50-60 teams per event. Our 21th straight sellout IS ALMOST HERE! I hope!
We want boys K- 12th grade and girls 4th grade- 12th grade.
Special exceptions will be charged $25. Sorry. It has finally become necessary. Hope our returning teams understand! We will factor in travel distance in scheduling for your teams.
You must register and pay before November 13, 2019 , at 9:00 P.M.
No Pay, No Play, No Exceptions!
PLEASE CALL NOW BEFORE REGISTERING. We want to bracket you appropriately IF we may have a spot for you. . Thank You!
Average skill level of our teams that register with us
Usually D1 THRU D3 teams register with us. We do get our share of D1 teams. Call and let me know your interest and I can find teams. Call and I will tell you if your team is a fit for our events. I will not mislead you into registering if your team is not a fit. That will not benefit anyone involved. We want your continued support, not your ONE time registration fee. Our reputation matters to us! Lower level teams please don't be intimidated! Teams have to start playing somewhere and I can find your team a fit! We usually have 2-3 levels in each age group. Call me for more info.

Tournament Rules- PLEASE READ!!
Games are played with the same rules as high school basketball. There are a few exceptions.
SPORTSMANSHIP is EVERYTHING!
*Coaches, parents and players, I can not stress this enough. The games are truly about the kids. Bad sportsmanship will not ever be tolerated. If you can't control your emotions, you will be asked to leave the gym.
* Throwing a punch is an automatic ejection from the tournament.
*If a player comes off the bench and onto the floor during an altercation he is ejected from the tournament.
* Only the HEAD COACH is allowed to communicate with the officials. No exceptions. 1st violation is a 2 shot technical. 2nd violation is an ejection from the tournament.
* If a coach choses to file a ptotest, he or she must pay a $100 fee to the tournament director immediately and clearly state the protest. If he or she gets the protest confirmed, action will be taken immediately to remedy the problem. If an illegal player has played, he will be disqualified from the tournament and any game that he has played in will be forfeited. Clearly, his team can continue to play without him.
*The $100 protest fee is not refundable under any circumstances because clearly, it affects the standings of teams in the tournament. It must be paid at the time of the protest.
*****Coaches, every parent needs to pay for a wristband. We can't pay staff if parents aren't willing to pay to get in. Only the Head Coach is allowed in free. NO EXCEPTIONS. Kids under 5 are FREE. Kids over 5 are $5 and adults are $10
**Coaches, your responsibility is to set a good example for the kids. Please accept and hpld youd your parents and players to a standard of respect and sportsmanship. Profanity will not be tolerated. You will be ejected from the facility.
