DISTRICT TOURNAMENT DIRECTORS INSTRUCTIONS
Please be reminded that TSSAA now receives 18% of the gross gate receipts in the district and region baseball tournaments. The financial report must be submitted to TSSAA immediately following each tournaments.
All checks for district, regional, and sectional tournaments and playoffs must be distributed within 10 business days of the completion of the tournament or game. Failure to do so will result in a $100.00 late fee to be paid to TSSAA and is to be used in the A.F. Bridges sportsmanship program to go to schools or students receiving awards. Failure to distribute funds within 20 business days will result in an additional $200 late fee (total $300.00). Failure to distribute funds within 40 business days will result in an additional $200.00 late fee (total $500.00). The school may not host any tournament or playoff until the principal or athletic director appears before the Board of Control to explain their reasons for not distributing the checks within the required time frame. The Board would then determine whether the school can host tournaments or playoffs in the future.
Also, we are requesting that each of our district directors send to us the completed bracket for your district tournament. The bracket should include which schools advanced from the very first round, through the semi-finals, and the finals of your tournament.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Gene Menees at the state office.
