ATHLETIC SERVICES

Football Schedules – The deadline for submitting 2012 football schedules via C2Cschools.com is March 30, 2012. Please make sure you have denoted your district games and preseason classics. Go into your schedule, select your district games and there will be a “Tags” tab on the right-hand side. Click it and check the district box. Please make sure you save at the bottom. This is critical because the district standings populate the playoff brackets! Your cooperation is appreciated.

Reminders:

The link can be found on the right column as the first box listed “District Meetings” (See below).
 


If your district does not have information, that is because the FHSAA office has not received the information from the district coordinator. All district coordinators are marked with an “X” under the “Assignments” link on the sport-specific pages.

COMMUNICATIONS

Membership Applications – The applications for continuing membership with the FHSAA in the 2012-13 school year are now available. You can access the form and directions on how to fill it out by clicking on the following link: http://www.fhsaa.org/now-due/application-continuing-membership-fhsaa-mb2-due-april-30
 
Water Polo/Lacrosse/Flag Football Score Reporting – The updating of brackets for water polo, lacrosse and flag football will now be handled at the school level for ALL district and play-in rounds. The reporting of scores will be identical to the reporting of regional playoff scores for any other team sport. The only difference is that district tournament games will be reported like regional games.
 
If your school hosts a district tournament or play-in game, your school will be responsible for reporting the matchup details and final score. Do not click on the link “Report District Final” following the district tournament and do not add any game manually to the schedule. The system will automatically update everything for you as long as you correctly report upcoming matchup details and the final score. The initial brackets with district tournament participants will be generated by the FHSAA. Once generated, the host school for every district tournament semifinal will get an alert to report the matchup details. This is when the process for the school starts.
