FHSAA Inaugural Alumni Basketball Tournament
April 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$5.00
The Fairfield High School Alumni Association welcomes all alumni, spouses of alumni, faculty, staff, current senior students, and parents of current students to participate in our Inaugural Alumni Basketball Tournament fund raiser. The tournament will be held at Fairfield High School on Saturday, April 15, 2017 starting at 9:00am (time is subject to change).
The cost is $200 per team, which will need to be received in full no later than (2) two weeks prior to the tournament. Proceeds will go to the FHSAA Scholarship Fund.
Tournament capacity is limited to (16) sixteen teams, consisting of (10) ten or fewer players. Teams may also elect to have up to (2) two coaches allowed to sit on the bench, but are not permitted to play. Teams may consist of both male and female athletes. The first 16 teams to pay their entrance fee will be guaranteed a spot in this year’s tournament.
Games will be played using a 20-minute running clock, and consist of two halves. The clock will stop in dead ball scenarios under 2 minutes in the second half of regulation only. If teams are tied at the end of regulation, there will be a 3-minute running clock overtime period. The clock will stop only in the final minute of each overtime period.
Outside of clock management, we will use standard state of Ohio high school rules. However, final ruling will be at the discretion of our tournament committee. We will use a regulation boys high school basketball, unless teams agree to use a regulation girls basketball. Both will be provided.
Referees will be volunteering their time to call a fair a game. It is strictly prohibited to argue calls, disrespect, or talk inappropriately to any of our volunteer referees. Individuals who are unable to follow this rule may be asked to leave the event.
Teams will be divided into (4) four, equal groups and play a guaranteed (3) games. A winner will be determined from each group based upon total wins. In the event that more than one team share in the win column, head-to-head and point differential will be used to determine the group winner. The winner of each group will move onto a single-elimination “Final Four” style bracket, with one team being crowned FHSAA Alumni Basketball Tournament Champion.
Thanks to our amazing sponsors, Performance Honda and Performance Toyota we will be featuring a Half Court Shot Challenge to WIN A NEW CAR*! That’s right, one lucky person will have the chance to fire a shot from mid court in an attempt to win a 2-year lease on a brand new Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla.
Everybody 18 and over in attendance will be given a ticket, which will be used for a blind draw at half time of the final game. The person who’s ticket is drawn will get one shot from behind mid court and if made will get their choice of which car they want to drive home! There is no additional cost to enter the drawing.
Families and friends are welcome to attend as spectators. The cost of admission is $5 per person. Lifetime Members will be able to attend at NO COST! (not a Lifetime Member yet?) Concessions will be available, with proceeds going to the Fairfield High School Athletic Boosters.
