OSAA District 9

2018 — OR/US

District 9 Tournament Information                    April 7, 2018               

Welcome District 9 Teams to the State Qualifying Tournament


Judges: Teams are expected to bring a coach who can either judge or tab. The Hood River community will provide the rest of the judges. Judges will be provided with coffee/tea, snacks, lunch, and a lounge separate from students. (If you have a special situation, just let me know. We don’t want there to be barriers to competing at Districts)

To the extent that enough judges are available, we will provide “courtesy judges” so that entrants whose qualification has already been determined may still have a chance to compete.
