Post-Game/Match Protocol

Only team personnel shall be allowed on the floor/field immediately following all postseason contests in the sports of basketball, football, soccer, and volleyball. Spectators will be allowed on the floor/field only after team handshakes for contests with no awards or following the presentation of individual and team awards.

Failure to keep fans/spectators off the floor or playing field until after the awards have been presented will result in the offending team not receiving public recognition at the tournament site. Individual and team awards will be given to a member of the offending team and the team will not be announced by the public address announcer at the tournament venue.

The South Dakota High School Activities Association will serve member schools by providing leadership in the development, supervision, and conduct of interscholastic activities which enrich the educational experiences of high school students. The SDHSAA is committed to the ideals that will provide equitable participation opportunities and positive recognition to students, while working cooperatively with all schools to enhance the achievement of desired educational goals.
