Uniform Guidelines
If your school plans to order new basketball uniforms, please review the basketball UNIFORM GUIDELINES. Please note that most college uniforms are NOT legal according to NFHS rule.

Process for Sanctioning International Basketball Games
Please note that individual coaches or schools should NOT be scheduling and sanctioning international contests on their own accord.  Tim Kelly, boys basketball coach at Curtis High School and WSCA representative, saves the schools money by coordinating the games, with sanction applications submitted on behalf of the tour, rather than the game, and also prevents schools from violating WIAA handbook rule 17.26.0.  Required sanction fees: $200 to NFHS, $70 to WIBCA.

Reminder Regarding a 21st Basketball Game
Teams are allowed to play a 21st basketball game once every three years ONLY when scheduled and approved by the Washington State Coaches Association, the WIAA, and the National Federation of State High School Associations (WIAA handbook rule 17.26.0.) The application is processed online through the NFHS Website with fees required to be paid upon submission. If your school is considering hosting an international touring team during the season, please contact Tim at
tkelly@upsd.wednet.edu.
