Good Luck, Thank You and Good Sportsmanship 

Good luck to the players and coaches for their teams to play to the best of their ability. Also, a special thanks to school administrators, sports leaders, coaches, players and parents for their dedication and hard work throughout the season to provide this opportunity for the student athletes. Most importantly, all game participants and spectators must each do their part and follow the Diocesan Rules of Conduct and exhibit proper fan behavior to ensure a positive game experience for all.

As was required during section play, and to ensure the most positive competitive atmosphere along with good sportsmanship and behavior of all fans, the Building Manager must be present during the game and at the pre-game officials meeting with the coaches and team captains. The home team must always have a designated Building Manager in attendance for the home games in the first and second rounds. A Building Manager for each team must be in attendance at all times for the Semi-Finals and Finals.
