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.

NCHC PERSONNEL POLICY: As an organization, we at the NCHC are committed to hiring trainers & security for every event that we run. This policy was put in place following the 2021 Basketball Postseason, where we had both trainers and security hired for all NCHC ran events. Many NCHC tournaments are run at multiple facilities; our goal is that every facility with more than two courts has a trainer or security member hired to be on-site open to close.

NCHC Fan* Ejection Policy: If a coach, player, or fan is ejected** from a game by an official or NCHC 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. The person ejected is ineligible to attend an NCHC Event or be on-site or campus of where an NCHC event is being hosted for 24 hours from the time they report it to No exceptions. Failure to comply will result in potential additional penalties to individuals, teams, and programs the fan is associated with 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.

Seeding Forms/Game Deadline: For a game to count for seeding to an NCHBC Event it must be played before the seeding deadline, dates below. Results after these deadlines will not be considered/counted for seeding, with the only exception being NCHBC run Post Season events, which impact the seeding.
Seeding Games Deadlines are–
District: January 10th
Regionals/Nationals: January 28th

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 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.

Disciplinary Action: DISCIPLINE: Conduct that would deem such disciplinary action would include violating NCHC eligibility rules, displays of violence, vandalism, blatant disregard for safety, spreading rumors or slander, vulgarity or humiliation of opposing teams or players (this can come from the players, coaches or fans).  Participating organizations are responsible for controlling everyone associated with their organizations. Disciplinary action may include any of the following: a letter of reprimand and a request for a written apology or suspension from participation in NCHC activities for a designated period of time, not to exceed three (3) years. When organizations or individuals are suspended from participation in NCHC activities, those individuals directly involved with any incidents must be named. Those players, coaches, administrators, or parents named as the offenders shall not be allowed to participate in NCHC activities as part of any other participating team until the period of discipline has ended.
