The ceremony will be streamed live online at 6:30 p.m.
Dress to impress! Ideally, we want teams to look cohesive and put together. Polos or button up shirts, nice slacks, skirts, dresses would be ideal. However, if that is not feasible, we’d appreciate teams to avoid wearing sweat pants, pajama pants, leggings, and sweat shirts as many have done in the past. Team shirts with nice jeans would be acceptable. We’ll leave the decision up to each coach’s discretion.
Seating at the Awards Ceremony is limited, so we cannot accommodate last-minute requests. There are assigned seating sections for each school with an extra seat for one coach on the lower level. Coaches will have aisle seats. Remaining parents and coaches will be seated in the balcony. If your coach or team previously selected not to attend, you will not be accommodated. However, we encourage everyone to watch online. The ceremony will be streamed live at 6:30 p.m. on our website. Awards will be given to the top six teams.
