Fans planning to attend games during the State Basketball Championships are reminded that signs in the stands may not be larger than 12" by 12". The language on the signs must "cheer on" their own particular team and not "cheer against" the opposing team. Tournament administrators have the right to confiscate signs if they are too large or offensive in nature.
Fans also should know that noisemakers are permitted as long as they do not simulate a whistle or a horn. Tournament officials and security have the right to confiscate any noisemaker that is a hindrance to the game or officials. Confetti is not permitted.
NMAA State Basketball Championships will be available on the NFHS Network, beginning March 11, 2014. Customer representatives are standing by at memberadmin@NFHSNetwork.com or 877-978-2311 to help fans get set-up to view their events as quickly as possible and to respond to questions regarding specific event links or technical difficulties.
A major challenge facing all student-athletes playing team sports is who they listen to for their instruction. While the obvious answer is their coach, that's not always the case. Too many times parents, siblings, or other outside influences seem to have the ears and eyes of the athlete instead of their coach.
So the next time you have the dilemma of who you should listen to for your instruction, it might be smart of you to listen to the one who controls your playing time, and that is the coach!
