We will not be using the scanned form. The form is now online. Please keep in mind those school districts that have more than one school, the lists were sent to the District AD. Only those on this list will receive complimentary entrance to the state basketball tournament. Basketball Coaches will not receive additional passes upon qualifying for the state tournament. They will need these passes in order to get into the tournament unless they are entering with the team prior to a game and are within the 20 allotted members. Coaches who do not have a pass and wish to enter when their team is not playing will not be granted complimentary entrance. CLICK HERE for the online form.
