(Image: Hoosier Temple/Twitter)INDIANAPOLIS – A proposed change to the state high school basketball tournament was voted down by IHSAA executives Monday.The committee agreed unanimously (17-0) against the measure that was presented to them in August by a study committee made up of representatives from Indiana Basketball Coaches Association, the Indiana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association,  the IHSAA Board of Directors and IHSAA staff.The proposal, which would have begun with the 2015-16 school year, called for the largest 64 schools by enrollment to make up Class 4A. Sixteen sectionals would have been played with four teams each and all games played on Saturday.The remaining schools in Classes 3A,2A and 1A would have been evenly distributed with seven or eight schools per sectional and played in a Tuesday-Wednesday-Friday-Saturday format.Additional portions called for the IHSAA staff to determine host sites at each level of the state tournament with the same site hosting both years of the alignment window. In recent years, school administrators within each sectional have determined the host site with some rotation between schools“I want to commend the Executive Committee for their thoughtful deliberations surrounding the basketball tournament format proposals,” IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox said following the meeting.“The Committee entertained two different proposals throughout this process and in the final analysis, those varied proposals did not significantly improve the current tournament format.  While the Association is not presently modifying the four class tournament, several salient points were raised during the conversations and those objectives will be considered during the next reclassification and realignment exercise which will occur in April of 2015.”last_img read more

‘Bosnian’ School of Football in London

first_imgThe B&H football player Haris Hodžić who lives in London, former member of English Club Watford, opened a football school London -HH11 football academy in the suburbs of London, where boys from 6 to 16 years old will learn football skills.“I have spent all my life in football and similar schools. I started in a private academy, here in Hertfordshire. There, I was noticed by scouts of the football club Watford, where I passed all their young teams and progressed to the first team. Thus, I know how the system of these schools works and what the coaches and future football players expect. I will give the chance to young players of my academy to receive daily trained under the supervision of qualified football experts”, said Hodžić, adding that he initially plans to play friendly football matches against other academies and other professional clubs.However, he is planning from the next season to establish his own youth teams and engagement in regular league competitions.“The goal of this program is to discover potential talents, to prepare good players and then to recommend them to professional clubs for further training. We have agreed on close cooperation with scouts and coaches from English clubs Watford, Stevenage, Northampton, Coventry and with some other European clubs. Also, during my stay in B&H and while playing for B&H Premiere League, I have established excellent cooperation with Rudar from Prijedor and Olimpiko. So, we have a plan to make connections for talents from B&H, who want to be part of local clubs”, said Hodžić, noting that the former Croatian youth representative Milan Krmpotić will take part in the academy, who during his career played for several Croatian, Czech and Slovak teams.All interested for the academy can sign in at the Facebook group: HH11 football academy.(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more
