other schools. All players must be registered at the school they play
for on the date of the tournament. Eight graders and below are
eligible to play with ANY class, A,B, or C. No player whose school is playing in the tournament can play
another school. The tournament director is final authority on
eligibility for this tournament. Protest of eligibility are accepted
by the tournament director,in writing, only from an opposing head

represent a certain school, may need to meet additional requirements,
to meet the spirit of the rules.

Rosters and Eligibility

Bring your roster to the Tournament Directors camper at BYSA 1 hour prior to your first game. A player may be named on only one roster for the entire tournament if the school has two teams. Entire roster must be Nebraska girls registered in a Nebraska school as an incoming (2009) freshman or a freshman from 2008. Nebraska 8th graders and younger may play for any team. If you are a freshman (08-09) or (09-10) and your school is NOT playing, you may NOT play for another school. This would make a team ineligible. Please read the entire rules in the NEWS.

Bring your roster, with the names spelled the way you would want them on the
All-State certificates.

Please fill out the ENTRY FORM and mail to the BYSA with your CHECK as soon as possible.
