Team USA- NCHBC
Sign Up & Registration Link Below info…
Each year HomeSchool Basketball Nationals in Springfield, MO features well over 300 Team USA sign ups!
Over the years Team USA has been expanded to Basketball Regionals & Volleyball Nationals.
Team USA serves many purposes.
1) Whole team is not attending
2) Do not have a team
3) Dual Rostering*
*This usually happens when a player is “playing up” due to their programs make up. In this case this happens when team they are not receiving a lot of playing time on the current team they are on. For these situations we always advise asking your team coach permission before signing up to dual roster.
Team USA is made up of Home School players from around the country. In many situations Team USA allows players to participate in an NCHC Post Season Event that they would not otherwise be able to. Team USA was birthed in the early 1990’s in San Antonio at the 1st HomeSchool Basketball National Tournament.
In Team USA you can request to play with your friends or teammates. We have seen many instances were 3-5 players from a team that played together all year and a coach want to play at an NCHC Post Season Event but don’t have enough to field a full team, Team USA is a great opportunity for these situations and others.
We are excited to present the 5th Annual Owen Gray Heart of a Champion Award! This award is different than any other award presented at the Nationals. The Owen Gray Heart of a Champion is awarded to a player or coach who exemplifies the love of Christ in their life. A Heart of a Champion deeply cares for their community and others above themselves.
2020 submission deadline: Sunday March 8 by Midnight
The award’s namesake and the first recipient, Owen Gray, is a student who learned he had Marfan Syndrome and could not play basketball or participate in sports anymore. He took this hardship and soared on wings like eagles. He raised money for the Marfan Foundation, raised national awareness for the Marfan Foundation, is constantly visiting and loving kids who are ill, never focuses on how things are hard for him, but cares for others.
Owen will be once again assisting in the hard process of deciding a recipient for this award.
This year we are proud to once again award this to a deserving player or coach. We get some great submissions for this award, and this year we wanted to share the amazing things these athletes and coaches are doing.

NCHBC Ejection Policy: If a coach, player or fan is ejected* from a game by an official or NCHBC tournament staff, the following four items must happen:
1. The ejected person must leave the facility immediately NOT just the gym but the facility.
2. Notify your Program Director (AD…)
3. Within 2 hours the Head Coach or Program Director must notify NCHBC headquarters by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org about the ejection within two hours.
4. The person ejected is ineligible to attend the next gamefor that specific team. No exceptions.

NCHC Cancellation Policy/Notice: Any team that gives a full 21 day cancelation notice will receive a full credit for any payments made; the credit will be good for any NCHC run event for 1 full calendar year. However, any late cancelations will forfeit any payments made and if they have not yet paid they will receive an invoice. Late cancellations are treated the same as if the team attended the event. We have no desire to make a team pay for an event they didn’t attend, however this policy is non negotiable as we require proper notice for brackets, referee’s, gyms, trophies, etc.
NCHC Late Fee: A $50 late fee will be added to any team fee’s that are not paid in full, 30 days prior to their events start date.

Failure to do so is a $100 penalty, per game, with additional penalties, including, but not limited to, future tournament ban.
Seeding Forms/Game Deadline: For a game to count for seeding to an NCHBC Event it must be played before the seeding deadline (2020 Districts January 12th & 2020 Regionals/Nationals January 30th.) Results after these deadline will not be considered/counted for seeding, with the only exception being NCHBC run Post Season events, which impact the seeding. 2021 Seeding Games Deadlines are– District: January 10th, 2021 Regionals/Nationals: January 28th, 2021
NCHC Dual Roster Policy: Players may play on multiple different age groups within a program. They are permitted to play on in any age group they qualify for. Players may only play on one team per age group.As always it is the NCHC policy that teams entering our tournaments have enough primary players to compete, our staff will look at all requests to accommodate dualrostering, however, each player must know who their primary team and each team must have enough primary players to begin each game of the tournament. Ultimately each team must be prepared for conflicts that our staff is unable to accommodate.
NCHBC Proof of Age Requirement– Each program must be able (in the event of an age challenge) to provide the NCHBC proof of age via birth certificate, for each player. Over the course of 25+ years each age challenge has been handled this way. Worthy of note, no age challenge has been successful. We accept electronic and physical copies, whichever is more convenient for the team/player to provide in the event of the challenge.
