This winter’s regular season and now the postseason has been very challenging. We all know that. Tournament Managers and region committee have many things to take into consideration before making final decisions. These include weather, weather backup, venues, venue availability, workers, officials, schools, travel, and fairness. The revised schedule will be posted on the website as to Monday Wednesday Friday Schedule. We ask for your cooperation and understanding as we all carry out our roles in this process: coaches coaching, Activities Directors administering, and Region 6A managing the tournaments.
