2016 Playoff and MTOC Availability

Printer-friendly version

Playoffs start on Sunday June 12th for tiebreaker games and Monday June 13th for quarter final games. Please fill out the following form. Be sure to list conflicts and the nature of the conflict for every day from Sunday June 12th through Saturday June 18th.  This information is needed to plan the playoffs and MTOC. The information will be available to the playoff committee. We will make every attempt to build a schedule that works for everyone. You need to be specific.  Note that games may be moved due to conflicts after the teams are known (e.g. if one team has a school conflict on the date of the semi-finals, the playoff committee may not take that into account in scheduling the semi-final until the team wins the quarter-final).  Be sure to poll your entire team for the entire week.


This is due no later than Wednesday June 1st 5:00 PM. Scheduling conflicts raised after this time may not be honored.

If you win the playoffs will your team go to MTOC the weekend of June 24th - 26th?

From the bylaws- Bylaw 24
Any team refusing to play in a playoff, or refusing to represent BAYS at MTOC after having qualified as a BAYS MTOC entry, will forfeit its right to the section championship and to all trophies. If BAYS suffers a monetary loss for such default by an MTOC-qualifying team, the team’s town or club organization will be required to make good for the loss.

There is a substantial fine for failing to fill an MTOC slot

Are there any evenings during the week of June 13th through 17th and/or Sunday afternoon June 12th and/or Saturday June 18th morning through early afternoon where there is a school wide function that might preclude sufficient players for a match. We will do the best to work around your school's events. Be specific (e.g. Middle school graduation is Wednesday - June 15th - seven of my players are graduating). If none, specify "none."
