A Message From NOD7BCA
Travis Galloway (Notre Dame H.S.
It is an honor to represent the basketball coaches of the
Northwest Ohio District VII Basketball Coaches Association. I
would like to welcome all of our new coaches to District VII.
Please join our organization if you haven't already. To join,
simply complete the membership form (using the link that Brian
Leppelmeier provided via email on September 14th)
and send your payment to Brian Leppelmeier at Pettisville High
School. The cost of the membership is $35.00 per staff if paid
by October 31st
and $40 if paid after October 31st.
The membership deadline is November 30th.
Please note, the boys and girls staff must join separately. If
you have any questions regarding membership, please contact
Keep in mind that only District VII Coaches Association members
can nominate and vote for the All-District Teams. In addition,
our association provides scholarships and awards to players for
both athletic and academic achievement, banquets, all-star
games, and awards and honors for coaches.
I would also encourage everyone to join the Ohio High School
Basketball Coaches Association (OHSBCA). You should have
received your application in the mail. If you did not, you can
for a membership application. Your membership must be
postmarked by 12-31-18. Contact our district director, Dave
Boyce, if you have any questions. Only OHSBCA members can vote
for our representatives for the Ohio North vs. South All-Star
Game. This is a reminder that each staff gets only 1 vote for
the North vs. South All-Star Game. However, I would encourage
each staff to join multiple coaches. All state association
members are eligible for scholarships worth $1,000 each for
their son or daughter (we have had many assistant coaches
awarded these as well), assistant coach-of-the-year awards, and
copies of Hooplines.
You will be receiving the District VII All-District voting
information via email again this year. Some of the information
will also be available on our website
This is where our 2018-19 District VII coaches contact
information is posted. Coaches may also access our website
through Davey1.com. Dave Spengler does a great job of keeping
our website up-to-date. We will use an electronic voting
procedure this year similar to what we've done in the past.
This allows coaches to nominate players, send out stats, and
vote at a later date. This information, as well as links, will
come to you via email. Please be sure to meet all deadlines for
nominations and voting for All-District. These deadlines can be
found on the “Important Dates” page in this newsletter, and you
will receive email reminders throughout the season.
Remember to complete your OHSAA State Rules Interpretation
It is being offered online again this year and administered for
free. Note that the online meetings will be activated
Wednesday, October 17th
at 9:00 am. A $50.00 penalty is enforced if not taken by the
deadline and you can find that information on the OHSAA website.
Links are included above for the NOD7BCA Executive Committee
Directory, Important Dates List, and Who-to-Contact List. Do
not hesitate to contact any member of our Executive Committee if
you have questions or concerns. We have a great group of
coaches on our Executive Committee who work hard to make the
district the best it can be.
Good Luck to everyone as the season approaches.
