2020 STATE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT COMPLIMENTARY PASS LIST
The 2020 State Basketball Championships Complimentary Pass Lists have been sent out to all Athletic Directors this year. Please complete the online form and submit to the NMAA by January 10, 2020. We will not be using the scanned form. The form is now online. 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.
We will be using the same procedure as last year. If a person is listed on the complimentary pass list, and also listed as part of the basketball program correctly on MaxPreps by December 13, 2019, they will receive a pass which grants access to the tournament and also to the Hospitality Room. Those listed on the pass list and not reported on MaxPreps correctly will receive a pass that will only allow complimentary access to the tournament itself. If you have any questions regarding the reporting of your coaches on MaxPreps correctly, please contact Tyler Dunkel at 505-923-3295
The links to the online form and instructional videos about the form and how to enter coaches on MaxPreps correctly are below
