Benefits of Attending a NCHBC District Tournament

#1 Regional Seeding

  • The winner of each NCHBC 2020 District Tournament (this includes the Great Lakes, Mid South, Ohio Valley River, & MCHC Conference Tournament’s as well as the four mentioned above) will be the #1 overall Seed in their bracket at the 2020 Regional Tournament the team attends.  If more than one District/ConferenceTournament Champion is in the same bracket at the same Regional Tournament, the Champions seeding will be determined via seeding tie breaker (however we will do our very best to keep Champions on separate sides of the bracket.)

#2 District Awards

  1. All District Teams– Each District will have a High School & Middle School 1st and 2nd Team. All-District teams will be voted on by district coaches.
  2. District POY Awards– Each District will have a High School Player of the Year Awards that coincide with Regional POY Awards voted on by district coaches and the officials. For Example:

Players who win these awards will have it noted on the Regional voting for the same awards:  i.e.  Justin Jackson 1st Team Bravos River District & Bravos River District Offensive Player of the Year.  

This will help voters have more information when they are voting for Regional Players of the year and is part of a two step program to continue to improve the voting process.

NCHC Policies

NCHC Eligibility Guidelines: Click Here

All Parents, Coaches, & Athletic/Program Directors are required to abide by the posted Eligibility Guidelines, during the NCHC Player, Coaches, & Program registration all individuals are required to read and agree to abide by the NCHC Eligibility Guidelines, if you have not yet read these yet please go to the link above and review. The NCHC considers anyone that sits on the bench to be a coach.

Sportsmanship is always encouraged by all parties. Parents or adults should never correct or confront the opposing team’s players, fans or children.

Under no circumstances should fans and children being shooting at half time.

In addition to these posted eligibility guidelines NCHBC Coaches are held to a higher standard: A coach is never confront opposing fans, students, or players before, during, or after a game. A coach is responsible for holding themselves, other coaches, & their players accountable for their language & actions, especially on the court. A coach is never to confront, yell at, or display threatening body language towards a referee after the game. A coach is responsible to make sure their parents &/or fans behave during their game. Social Media Policy: It is not acceptable for a coach, Athletic Director, Parent, Player, or team account to make negative social media post about NCHBC players, fans, referees, directors, or tournaments.

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 rob@flattmail.com about the ejection within two hours.
4. The person ejected is ineligible to attend the next game for that specific team. No exceptions. Failure to comply will result in potential additional penalties to individual, team, and program that could extend into future seasons.
*This includes but is not limited to: receiving two technical fouls

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.

NCHC Refund Policy: The NCHC does not issue refund checks, we do however issue credits for one full calendar year to any NCHC run event of your programs choice.

NCHC Must Play Policy: A team that enters into our events agrees to compete in all tournament games bracketed.

This policy specifically is for teams capable of playing, but choosing to leave the tournament with bracketed games.

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 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 run Post Season events, which impact the seeding.

NCHC Dual Roster Policy: 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 dual rostering, 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. 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.
