Metro USA Sports: News Page
CODE OF CONDUCT
The costs associated with hosting basketball games are high. The cost of security, by host districts, can be quite expensive. A secure playing environment is a must. Therefore, there will be a zero tolerance policy when executing the code of conduct rule. Metro USA Sports is the most competitive league of its kind. Winning is important. Good sportsmanship must be exemplified. This means controlling all game situations. Not allowing a player or fan to get out of control. Or, more importantly, not allow a score to get out of control. We want this league to be a positive experience for our young athletes. Therefore, Metro USA Sports will insist that all participating athletes shall be treated with respect and courtesy. And, that all participants shall abide by school rules while playing a Metro USA Sports scheduled game.
"Tradition": is the passing down of a culture from generation to generation. The Metro Invitational Tournament is the Grand-Daddy of them all!
February 5th is the official end of regular season. GAMES MUST BE COMPLETED AND SCORES REPORTED (via email) BY THIS DATE. It is the responsibility of the head coach to check their record and scores and report any inaccuracies to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline. Forfeits will not be accepted on this date because a reason and verification cannot be made in time.
With over 200 teams in this tournament, there will be no special considerations. Your tournament scheduled date and time is final.
Please support our non-profit host districts, as all proceeds benefit them.. Event admission is $4/adult and $1/student. Remember to play the 50/50 and eat a dog or pizza at the game. Exactly.....nothing has changed since 1996....except for costs associated with running a major tournament.
