Dear Western Ohio Coaches:
We are pleased to welcome ALL Western Ohio NSDA Member Schools to the 2019 district tournament!
Again this year, we will be registering through Joy of Tournaments.
And like last year, instead of mailing in the green sheet, it is now available for download on the [Entries] page of this website. After you register your team, you'll see a green box appear where you may download and print a pre-populated registration sheet (formerly known as the green sheet). No longer do you need student and principal signatures - just your own. Please BRING THIS TO REGISTRATION ON THE 15th!
Please check to be sure you have paid your NFL dues. Any dues still owed may be paid at registration, but must be paid before rounds start. Make checks for dues and memberships payable to NSDA.
Make checks for tournament registration payable to NSDA as well. Also check your ratios. Again this year joy of tournaments is logged into NSDA and will not let you put in a student not on your list or over your ratio or who is not a member!
Also please note that this year stduents may double enter. Students will need to bring a single entry letter of intent form and turn in at the time of registration.
Please do your best to bring as many entries as you are allowed as that will make a difference in our qualifiers. It will also help your degree numbers which will help the district stay healthy!
Two person teams of any kind (pf, duo, etc.) count as one entry.
IT IS IMPORTANT YOU CALL FRIDAY MORNING THE 15th WITH ANY DROPS OR CHANGES. THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE FOR DROPS BEFORE 9:00 A.M. BARRING SUDDEN ILLNESS, DROPS AFTER THAT TIME WILL BE CHARGED.
CALL Alan AT 513-478-2615.
