Any Site/Traffic Update for 2022?
We have spread out the fields by adding a 4th complex again this year (Warrior in Huber Heights) so please look at the maps since this is a new location for us. All other locations are the same with all finals at Ankeney.

Traffic should be improved but ANK and Bellbrook will most likely be congested so leave plenty of time to get to your games. There is also a new traffic pattern on US 35 near ANK. This new pattern is a Texas U-Turn set up where you can't turn left or go straight if you are on Factory Rd or Orchard Ln so you would have to go right and then there is a U-turn lane with a light that will allow you to go your desired direction. It is confusing and we don't think it will help tournament traffic but we will see how it goes this year. If you are at ANK there is a new connecter from Yellow Brick to Shakertown Rd that was used in 2021 and did help. Please consider using this exit and heading straight on Shakertown. From Shakertown you can go to Fairfield and turn right to get on SR-35 or you can turn left and head toward Indian Ripple which will take to 675 we well and will avoid the Texas U-Turn. Hobson is one way traffic that enters off of Trebein Rd and then exits out the back onto Linebaugh. From Linebaugh you can turn left to get to Dayton-Yellow Springs and then back to 675. Bellbrook (Sackett Wright) has multiple parking lots so make sure you look at the maps as some lots will be closer to your fields than others and may be less congested. Washington Mill is one way in and one way out. Warrior has an entrance road and a separate exit road onto Fishburg Rd. From Fishburg you can get back to 75 by heading West or come through Huber Heights by going East onto Fishburg to get to SR-35 and the other complexes in Beavercreek/Bellbrook.
Do I need a concussion training certificate in order to coach at the Haunted Classic this year?

Concussion Awareness Training

The State of Ohio has recently passed the "Return to Play" law that mandates that youth leagues, coaches and parents have an understanding of player safety and an awareness of injuries including those related to concussions. All coaches and any administrators carded with a team are required to complete mandatory concussion awareness training prior in order to continue to actively participate in coaching and training of youth players. For more information regarding the Return to Play please click the link below:


In addition Dayton Childrens Hospital will perform free baseline concussion testing if any players would like to have this completed

All carded coaches participating in the Haunted Classic MUST provide proof of concussion awareness training. If you have not completed the course, use the link below to complete the NFHS Concussion Training Course. Once you have completed the NFHS course, you will receive a certificate of completion. Please present a copy of this certificate for all carded coaches with your registration papers. Coaches without this certificate will not be allowed to participate in the Haunted Classic.

The application form does not look right on my screen (overlapping drop down boxes, long rows over the input fields, etc.) What is going on?
First, you should let the ENTIRE form load BEFORE you scroll. It is a big form.

In short, your computer does not have enough memory (RAM) available to render the form correctly. Here is the solution that will work in most cases:

1. Clear the cache (temporary files) in Internet Explorer (Usually Tools>Internet Options>Remove Temporary files
2. Shut down Internet Explorer
3. Restart the computer
4. Open JUST MS Internet Explorer.
5. Go to Web site, fill out form.

In most cases, this will solve the problem....
What is the concussion Policy?
The Haunted Classic follow the laws of the State of Ohio and OSYSA in regards to concussions and return to play. The specific rules are summarized on the Ohio South website (OSYSA.com) under the bylaws and specifically in Section 19.

The basic guidelines are as follows:

19.6 If a player, during any game or practice, exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with having sustained a concussion or head injury, the player must be removed from play by either the individual who is serving as the player’s coach, the referee, or a league official that is supervising the practice or competition.

Once a player has been removed from play because of a suspected concussion or head injury, that player shall not return to play that same day. The player shall not return to play until he/she has been evaluated by and received written clearance including the signature and occupation of a physician or another licensed health care provider authorized pursuant to Section 19.7 to grant such clearance.

If a player has been issued a player pass, the most effective means will be to hold the player pass until the clearance form required by this section is received by the entity that organized the game or practice where the player was believed to exhibit signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with having sustained a concussion or head injury.

If a player is removed from play in the player’s last game or practice of an OSYSA organized activity or OSYSA-sanctioned tournament as outlined in this Section 19.6, the player’s player pass and / or other registration material shall be returned to the member league which initially registered the player.

Additional information can be found at OSYSA.com and the Ohio Department of Health website at http://www.healthyohioprogram.org/concussion
Will the tournament be using a one ref or three ref system at U8-U10?
We will be using a one ref system for U8-U10 age gorups and will be calling offsides. U11 through U15 will use a three man system and will call offsides as well.

U7 will not call offsides
Will you provide refunds for COVID 19 cancellation?
We will provide full refunds for COVID19 if this causes the cancellation of the tournament.

Is the Haunted a Stay to Play Tournament?
The Haunted Classic is a Stay to Play tournament. If your team will be using hotel rooms they must use the hotel management service supplied on the Haunted Classic website. Please support our local, approved, hotels in order to help keep the tournament costs reasonable. These hotels supply valuable support to the tournament in the way of referee rooms and other benefits.
