Seeding Correction Request Form

NATIONAL Correction Request Deadline: 18u Forms must be completed by 11:59 PM, Tuesday, March 3rd

Our goal is to strive to get the seeding as correct as possible, which is why we include the coaches in this process.

Before completing this form, please take a few minutes to read over the information provided below.

  • We acknowledge that mistakes will be made in the process of seeding over 1,000 teams in a 45 day period. We count on coaches to communicate these mistakes and notify us.
  • This year we have moved all seeding correction requests to a form in an effort to streamline the process.
    When filling out this form it would help for you to understand that we view each completed form in one of the following categories.

    • Potential Mistake, Circumstantial Appeal, Evidence Appeal, and Don’t Understand/Agree
  • We have a seeding oversight committee from around the nation that will receive copies of the forms filled out. Any seeding committee member may respond individually or as a committee. In this form we have four categories for each form to be selected.

When we receive submissions that are evidence based (clear cut) mistakes, we fix these ASAP. Sometimes the situation is not as clear cut when we receive submissions that do not require a change.  We will do our best to respond, however it may not be until the seeding has gone final.

Thank you for taking the time to review the preliminary seeding.

Please Note:

Seeding Forms/Game Deadline: For a game to count for seeding to an NCHBC Event it must either be played before the seeding deadline (Districts January 12th & Regionals/Nationals January 30th.) Results after these deadline may not be considered/counted for seeding, with the only exception being NCHBC ran Post Season events, which impact the seeding.


All submissions must be made within the short deadline given when the preliminary seeding is sent out. Otherwise it will likely be too late to make any changes, regardless of the category a submission falls into.
