WELCOME TO THE OTCA

Timeline; Monday 8/24/15: The new numbers and cut-offs have been released by OHSAA, we are aware of three teams effected in the OTCA State Team Tournament and those three teams were removed from the D2 draw and randomly inserted into the D1 draw per our rules.  I'd like to thank everyone for their patience and flexibility during this time that was out of our control. See the next two entries for more information if needed.

Timeline; Thursday 8/6/15: The OHSAA board of directors voted this morning to immediately reverse its previous decision to include students who attend community schools and STEM schools back into their local public school enrollment counts. The OHSAA will revise and repost the enrollment count for each school and the divisional alignments that will be used for the upcoming fall tournaments. Winter and spring sports divisional alignments will follow in the near future. 

This event could have an effect on the OTCA Team tennis tournament, but we will not know until the new numbers/cutoffs are announced, and the OHSAA has said that they will announce them sometime this fall. Therefore, The OTCA has decided to have our tournament continue until we find out if we have any changes.  Our rules state that once an error has been observed, we fix the error, and continue on.  We will continue to take this approach also at this time. There will not be any redos needed. More information will appear here when we are informed of the changes. 

Thank you for your patience, and let’s have a great season!   -Scott Long, OTCA President

 

2015/2016 major rule change: Continuous Coaching:

Make sure you go to: http://www.ohsaa.org/sports/te/girls/gtemanual.pdf  Below is an overview of the new rule found in your manual.  (8/1/2015)

 

                               Continuous coaching is permitted. In addition to coaching at the ends of games 3,5,7, etc. and the end of each set, a coach may coach their own player(s) any time the ball is not in play, as long as the coach does not interfere with actual point on the court.

                             A coach may sit or stand near the net post and must stay within the area where the players’ chairs or benches would be located if not provided.  Coaching also can take place outside of the fence (where courts allow, coaches are to avoid coaching directly behind their player) as it has in the past, but coaches are not to coach through adjacent courts and interfere with that courts’ point.

Coaching may not delay the pace of the game in any way.  Violations of this rule will follow the current Time Violation Penalties:

First Offense ............................Warning 

Each additional violation .................One Point Penalty 

The purpose of coaching is to offer advice to the coaches’ player(s).  Coaches shall not distract or annoy the opposing player(s) in any way. A coach shall not initiate a conversation with the opposing player or create a distraction on the court.  Such action is a Code of Conduct Violation, and the coach’s player, on the court where the violation occurred, shall be assessed the appropriate penalty:

First Offense ............................One Point Penalty 

Second Offense ................. One Game Penalty 

Third Offense……………….Loss of Match Penalty;

These penalties will not affect the player’s future matches. Infractions still need to be self-reported by the offending coach to his athletic director and the opposing coach must inform his athletic director of the situation.

2015 Girl's State Team Tournament –

NOW COMPLETED AND POSTED BELOW!

The draw was delayed due to OHSAA and ODE not releasing the new Divisional numbers in April as planned.  Once the numbers were released on June 17 the OTCA Board had to certify the numbers of each high school and an error was found that affected all 4 districts.  OHSAA was contacted and the error was fixed and the draws are currently being made by each district and their representatives.  Posted below are ALL 8 draws.  (7/2/15)­­
