: Nice idea ... but
: 1. Who is sanctioning this event? What about maximum games allowed or even insurance for the players?
: 2. Since the official season is over, doesn't this equate to "illegal off-season contact" by the coaches?
: 3. Assuming this is for underclassmen only - with the end of the real season all seniors no longer have any high school eligibility left.
: 4. Who is going to monitor whether or not these rosters have been modified from the team that played JV during the real season? Are they going to allow underclassmen varsity players from teams not in the playoffs to all of a sudden appear on a roster or maybe allow a school to basically load their roster with players from their freshman and sophomore teams (often much better than JV's) instead of their actual JV team
This is a sanctioned event held by the L.A. City Section. All the necessary paperwork was filled out and approved by the Section office. It doesn't count against your limit of number of games for the regular season. Everything is legitimate, and the information was sent out and offered to ALL the Boys & Girls Basketball Head Coaches. Some responded by the deadline... some did not respond.
