WIBCA releases statement after meeting with WIAA

The Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association met with the WIAA Tuesday to discuss the state tournament format.

It was a chance to create and open dialogue between WIBCA and the WIAA. I’m working on a blog post and story now, but for now, I wanted to share the WIBCA’s statement:

IN RESPONSE TO MARCH 29TH MEETING BETWEEN WIBCA AND WIAA REGARDING 2011 REGIONAL AND STATE TOURNAMENTS

In meeting with the WIAA staff and two WIAA Executive Board members on March 29, 2011, the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association (WIBCA) State Tournament Format Committee felt it was both a productive and positive meeting. The WIBCA committee members feel that our membership’s concerns/issues were heard. The primary goal was to identify what can be done to provide a higher quality tournament for all involved. The committee has an understanding of the challenges that the WIAA faces fiscally and, most importantly, we will continue to collaborate with the WIAA regarding improving the structure of our tournaments in order to ensure a positive experience for all involved. Though all parties were in agreement that there are many issues and challenges that need to be addressed for future tournaments, any changes that might be made will be determined by the executive board after the WIAA has gathered input from several other groups in the coming weeks. WIBCA looks forward to working with the WIAA in the very near future to continue this process of improvement.
