2018 Basketball Tournament Update

As a reminder:

-Pre-Tournament meeting for the men/YM will be on February 25th with the Tournament beginning on March 3rd. Cary Goodrich will in in touch with many of you in the next week or so to confirm the availability of your buildings for the tournament.

-For the Women and YW the Pre-Tournament Meeting will be on March 11th with the tournament beginning on the 17th.  Marla and Lisa will be in touch for the YW tournament building availability and Diane Snyder will be running the women’s tournament.

-As always, if any YM or YW have participated on the high school basketball team at any time during this past season, they are not eligible to participate in the HCC Tournament.  It seems like every year we have a problem with this, so if you would please pass this along to all of your Stake Sports Specialists it would be greatly appreciated.  Jr. High School players are not restricted by these same High School rules, so they can participate.

-Also participation is to be within your own stake boundaries unless we have non-members playing.

-If you are not having a basketball season in your Stake and still have some ward teams that would like to participate, please let Cary, Marla, Lisa or Diane know that you will be having teams representing your stake.

Looking forward to seeing all of you in the next several weeks, please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions or concerns about your season or questions about the tournament.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to all  of the Holladay Coordinating Council,

I just wanted to thank you for an outstanding year in sports for 2017 in the HCC.  Sports is one way that we can keep our youth (as well as ourselves) active and away from the social media, television, and other sedentary activities that seem to penetrate every part of our lives.  I have once again included a current organizational chart and 3 year calendar that shows the 5 sports that we host tournaments for as well as those on the council.

I need to ask a favor from each of you, would you please send the calendar and organizational chart to every YM, Elders, YW and Relief Society leader in your wards and stakes.  Our biggest complaint we receive is that the people who want to participate (member and non-members) are unaware of dates or even that we have sporting activities.  We have enough turnover in the church that many who are in new callings are also unaware of these programs.

Thank you for all that you do!

Enjoy your Holidays and we will see you next year!

2017 HCC YM/YW Soccer Tournament

Attached are the tournament brackets for the 2017 HCC soccer tournament starting this Tuesday September 26.

2017 HCC YM_YW Soccer Tournament (PDF)

A few tournament rules and reminders:

– Rosters are required for this tournament with participant’s signature, bishop’s signature, and signature of a parent or guardian for each YM and YW.

– For stakes that entered two teams, I designated them as 1st and 2nd place. If your stake is sending two teams and you didn’t have league play or a stake tournament to determine placement, get together and decide which team will play as 1st and which as 2nd place.

– As requested, I scheduled games so the seniors weren’t playing at the same time as the youth which means adult games are later the first two nights.

– Games start on the hour with a forfeit declared at 5 minutes after if not enough players.

– Games are two 20 minute halves with a 5 minute half time. If a game is tied after regulation, a five minute extra period will be played in which the first team to score wins. Shootout if still tied after the extra period.

– Substitutions: Player notifies Assistant Referee or Linesman, AR notifies Referee, Referee signals in player. Player must enter at center line.

– No sliding – penalty is an indirect kick for the other team.

– 7 players minimum on the field and 10 max.

– No toe cleats or metal cleats

– No jewelry

– Shin guards are required for each player.

– Players can only play for one team. If your team loses, you’re done. No playing for any other team still in the tournament.

See you at the tournament,

Holladay South Stake Youth Soccer Tournament Results!

We want to thank each and every one of you for supporting Wednesday’s Stake Youth Soccer Tournament!! We couldn’t stop commenting on how many people were there and how much fun everyone had!!

After a fun first round of play we had a tight game between the 8th and 14th wards to determine who would play the 4th ward in the championship game. The score was 1-1 when time ran out so we moved to ‘sudden death’ play. After just a couple of minutes of overtime play the 8th ward kicked in the ‘golden goal’ to win! The championship game between the 8th and 4th wards was a tough battle, but the 4th ward emerged as our stake champ!! Both the 4th and 8th wards will be playing in the Region Tournament that begins this coming Tuesday. Congrats!

Thank you again for all of your support! And feel free to share any of the pictures we took with your ward.
