Check-in, scoring, etc for 2017 is shown below.

Scoring for games:

The Home team is listed first on the schedule and the home team provides the official scorekeeper. The official scorekeeper must keep the game record in the official book provided by tournament staff. This means all players' names, jersey numbers, baskets scored, fouls, foul shots, running score, etc., plus final score must be kept in the book as the game runs. This official book must then be signed by both coaches. Signing the book indicates you agree with the end result, the score, and all else that is contained in this official book. As a POWER RANKING tournament and a NATIONAL QUALIFYING tournament, we must be stringent in this regard. If the official scorekeeper wants to transfer the official book info into their own book, we request that you follow one of the following options rather than attempt to fill in two books during the game:

1)Have another parent or coach complete your own team book during the game, or

2)Take a picture of the official book with a smart phone and use that record to complete your own team book.

We have had numerous problems when scorekeepers try to fill in two books during the game, or during timeouts or at the half. The importance of having an accurate official book is very high - and the consequences of an incorrect book can negatively impact a team.

Check-in and paperwork:

Girls 2017 Handbook excerpt from National check in:

1. All athletes and coaches must show their AAU membership verification at the time of Registration. If verification is misplaced or cannot be produced, another one must be purchased at that time with no refund. 

2. Copy of report cards and approved birth records must be carried to every game. Proof of grade must be available for review, by an AAU designee at all AAU licensed competitions. Acceptable documents include the following:

a. A photocopy of that portion of the athletes’ report card for the current school year which shows name, grade and school.

b. A certified copy of birth record from the State, County, or Municipal Bureau of Vital Statistics in the place of birth (HOSPITAL RECORDS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE)

c. A certified copy of the delayed registration of birth, if the athlete’s birth was not recorded on her day of birth, issued by the same governing bodies

d. Consular Service Form FS-240, “Report on Birth” issued by the U.S. Department of State

e. Immigration and naturalization forms I-151 and I-25

f. Form No. 43-12311-7 issued by the U.S. Department of Justice

g. Legal passport

h. Driver’s License

We will be flexible where we can be - thus legible photocopies of birth certificates and report cards are acceptable.

All Non-athletes/coaches are responsible to see that their team meets all eligibility requirements. If a player is found to be ineligible prior to the start of a sanctioned competition, the player will be expelled from the competition and the team will continue. If a player is found to be ineligible after the competition has started, the player will be expelled from the competition and the team will forfeit all games in which the ineligible player was listed on the official score sheet. The team may continue to participate, if applicable, without the expelled player.

 All birth certificates, valid 2016/17 report cards, and AAU cards must be with you when you check in.

Player and Coach AAU cards must be linked to the same club code for the team.  This must show on all cards. 

 Also, no more than 3 players per team may be from out of state.

 Please arrive at  (1) Patrick Gym - front lobby for teams that have games at Patrick gym and Rice /High School, or (2) Essex High School front lobby for teams that have games at Essex High School and ADL Lawton Middle School  prior to your first game, at least 45 minutes early so your paperwork can be reviewed by our staff before your first game. Reviewing stations will be open at 7:00 am at Patrick Gym lobby and at 7:15 am at Essex HS.

 You will need to provide copies of the player and coaches (head and assistant) and all bench personnel’s AAU cards.

 If coaches do not have valid and AAU cards, they may not coach (or sit on the bench) in the tournament.

 All scorers must have valid AAU cards. Scorersand all bench personnel (assistant coaches) must be adults.

The process to get AAU cards for adult non-athletes is not immediate - there is a background check involved and it can take several days or weeks. We will NOT accept  'Pending' status on coach and bench personnel AAU cards.

 Player birth certificates (legible copies are fine) and report cards from the 2016/17 school year must also be presented at check-in.

 Report Cards for Check -in: We experienced many issues with check-in for the past few years at both Boys and Girls states and thus would like to pass on some advice to you. Make sure you have a valid 2016/717 school report card that shows grade level for all players. Review this as a coach and do not leave it up to the player or parent. Many report cards we saw in the past years did not include the grade level. If a report card is not available, contact the school and ask for a statement on school letterhead attesting to the player and the grade level, and signed by a school administrator - such as the Principal, Head of Guidance, or Registrar. You will risk forfeiture if you do not present report cards or other valid school and grade documentation for each player.  You must turn in all materials for the check-in process by 2:00 pm on Saturday.

 Additionally you can make the check in process easier for you and for us if you have all your materials ready when you get in line.  Organize your paperwork by player or by type (i.e., have all of Sue Smith's forms collated together, then the next player, etc. Or have all the aau cards together, then the birth certificates, then the report cards.) Coaches must have all team paperwork together when they check in - do not come into the line if you are missing records as you will just have to hunt this stuff down and then come back. You can have a responsible parent or assistant coach stand in line to check in, but the head coach must sign our Coaches' Ethics form, so you will have to come back to the table at some point early on Saturday. Once again, I will email out the Coaches' Ethics form, so coaches can sign it and have a parent turn it in during the check in process if they choose to do that. This form is also posted as an attachment below.

 Check in is at  UVM Patrick gym front lobby and Essex HS front lobby  Please allow at least 45 minutes for this process. If you are too rushed prior to your first game, you may be able to leave your documentation with us, but if you play with an ineligible player, you risk forfeiture of any games played with that ineligible player. We are glad to answer any questions that you have in this regard to help you.
