Sectional Tournament Seeding 2/17/24 This Saturday

Brackets and Tournament Schedules: The brackets will be released as the committees review and approve them for order, sites, and game times. Watch this space on the website. It will be updated as soon as brackets are turned on.

Missing Game Stats: This would also be a great time to go back through your books and your stats sheets and enter your season's stats for each game. If you have HUDL reporting, you can import your stats for home and away teams at the click of a button. Contact us at HSSS if you need additional information. Your game stats also populate your player's personal profile pages on your roster and follow your underclassmen to next year.

Team Photos: Team photos can be uploaded through your Coach Tools Consoles. It is better to resize them, but not completely necessary. You can always attach them to us in an email, and we will upload them for you.

Good luck to all teams in the Sectional Tournament

The 2024 Section III Tournament Seeding is Saturday 2/17

Brackets and playoff schedules will be released as soon as they are reviewed and approved by the committee this Saturday morning.

Coaches: Be sure to have all of your game scores in and your schedules and results up to date. Putting your final scores in ASAP after game affects the standings and the Bradley Terry Seeding System updates on the HSSS server every 3 minutes.

Coaches: There is still time to go through your scorebooks and get your team stats updated and completed. Remember that every player on your roster has a profile page, and a player's stats will follow them throughout their varsity careers. College coaches are looking.

Once the committee seeds your tournament, schedules are updated, and games are created by HSSS as teams move through the brackets. Your Committee Chairmen have the access in the post-season to help you with your schedules, and any changes should pass through them.
HSSS will follow all teams through Regionals and States and create the games after Sectionals for your players, game stats, and for your families and fans following the website all season.

If you need anything after seeding, contact your committee chairmen, or feel free to reach out ot HSSS.

Coaches: Winter Weather in the Forecast

If winter weather causes your game to be cancelled (PPD), remember that you can use the red calendar feature in your Coach Tools to indicate that the game for that day is cancelled (PPD),

You can use the green calendar tool to reschedule that game as soon as a date and time are determined.

This takes about 2 seconds and communicates to the media and community that your game will not be played. I can also have an impact on fans and families traveling to a game and coaches planning to attend to scout.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to HSSS.

Thank you.

Section III Winter Sport Team Photo

Adding your team photo to your team page on High School Sport Stats really takes viewing your page by the team, the parents, and the public who follow your page, a better experience.

If you have your team photo taken with your players in their team uniform with numbers visible, please post on your page through your coach tools console. For best results, resize your team photo to 800 pixels wide. Also, your photo should be saved in .jpg, .gif, or .png formats for the best results.

If you would like to email them to HSSS and we will load them for you, please email them to

Adding stats and your team photo are small things but work to make HSSS the premier world-class HS sports management website anywhere.

The new Coach Tools Console is now the default Console. The old console will be available. Your league chairs will be notified if and when the old console will be retired. Check it out.

Coaches: Note that schedules were entered by HSSS in October, and there have been a few changes in dates, times, and neutral sites. It's now up to coaches to manage changes. Take a moment in the coming days to check for schedule changes and make corrections. Contact HSSS if you have any questions.

New Coach Tools Console

For 2023-2024, HSSS has launched a new Coach Tools Console. There are new efficiencies built into it. Coaches are welcome to check it out and to use it. Both consoles will work simultaneously going forward.

You can access the new console at New Coach Tools Console.

Basketball Coaches: When entering game stats in the new Coach Tools Console, we have made a change that you don't have to check the DNP (Did Not Play) for players. We have defaulted the boxes that you would uncheck the players who played. Click Here for the Description.
