    Due 1/26/18

    Dear Cheerleading Coach,

    Greetings from the Cheerleading Committee of the Connecticut High School Coaches Association. We hope that everyone is having a good year. The Connecticut High School Coaches Association will select All State Cheerleaders for the 15th consecutive year. Four (4) All State Cheerleading Teams consisting of 20 athletes will be selected: one for each Class; LL, L, M and S.

    We know there are many demands placed on all of us, but we need your help. We are looking for a pool of cheerleading coaches who are willing to judge the All State entries. We will select four coaches from each Class to select the All State teams. All coaches who judge must be members of CHSCA. There will be a head judge who will oversee the judging process and three panel judges that will judge the cheerleaders. For example, if you are a coach for a Class M school you would be judging the cheerleaders for either Class S, L or LL team. You would not judge your own division. There will also be a tabulator and an assistant for each division. In addition we would also need a tabulator for each room as well as a helper to assist with putting the Flash Drives into the computer.

    The committee is hoping to judge the FLASH DRIVE’s on Sunday, February 11, 2018 (snow date 2/18/18) beginning at 10:30 am at Cromwell HS. If you are interested in being in this pool please fill out the information sheet and send it back to Beth Sarnacki (address is listed on the information sheet) along with a copy of your CHSCA card by January 5, 2018. Once the sheets are returned a confirmation will be sent to you if you have been selected to be one of the judges. Please take the time to fill out the attached sheet and send it back if you would like to be considered. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Cheers,

    Beth Sarnacki, Cromwell High School

    2017 Senior All-Star

    Nominations

    This year there only one way to nominate your players for the senior all-star game. 

    This year you will need to submit a nomination through your CBS MaxPreps team website and on-line software to nominate your players. Each coach will need to contact Megan Nelson from CBS MaxPreps if you do not currently have an active MaxPreps team account (it’s free).  Megan will give you an access code for your team.  Her email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    In order for your player to be nominated, she must be the following.

    1. A senior

    2. Must have played in 2/3rds of all sets

    3. Must be entered match-by-match stats as opposed to season totals.

    4. Must be entered by October 25, 2017

    This process above is very similar in how it is handled by other states and nationally. I understand this is new and change is different, but we would like to make these necessary changes as we move forward in better serving our Connecticut Senior volleyball players. As mentioned in our communication last year, we would be moving towards a more on-line process through CBS MaxPreps.

    Once those criteria are met, you can go to your MaxPreps team admin and click on “CT Award Nomination” under Utilities.

    In addition, in the “Comments” section, please add the following (you can cut and paste from here – next year, it should actually be incorporated into the nomination)

     

    1. Player's Address; email address and shirts size

    2. Parent's full name; Address; email and phone number

    3. Coach's full name, address and email address.

    4. Any additional information or awards the player may have had in the past (i.e., All-Conference, All-State, etc.).
