2017-18 Playoff Requirements

Please remember:  
 

  1. Coaches need to "check in" and present their drivers license to District 2 personel before each game.  CEP information has already been verified and any coach found to be incomplete with those requirments will not be allowed on the bench.
  2. Managers need to have their team book with them at each game and provide stickers for the scorebook (D2 provides the scorebooks).
  3. Up until championship weekend, teams must provide workers for the box - just as they would any league game.  (Visiting team does box and scoresheet, home team does clock and box).
  4. The home team is the HIGHER SEED - not always the top of the bracket.
