All Region/ All American Voting:
The NCHBC Regional System also provides exposure for All-American & All-Region Candidates, each Region is guaranteed to have at least 10 players selected to participate in the National Exposure Showcase Game as either All-American or All-Region. Coaches attending an NCHBC Regional are the official voters for All Region and All Americans.
A player’s team is not required to attend the National Championships to be eligible to make the All Region Team. A player may play in the all region game even if his/her team does not attend the National Championships. A player’s team must attend the Regional Championship to be nominated for the All Region Team. All head coaches of teams that attend Regionals will be invited to vote for the All Region Players.
Annual Award Voting:
NCHBC Regional Championship Participants will be given exposure for the HomeSchool Basketball Annual Award Voting. Each Region will have a Offensive POY, Most Valuable Player (MVP), Coach of the Year, Freshman of the Year, Sophomore of the Year, Junior of the Year, 6th Man/Woman of the Year, Defensive POY, Newcomer of the Year, & Most Improved Player of the Year. Coaches attending an NCHBC Regional are the official voters for these Awards. The Regional Winners of these Awards will automatically become National Finalist.
Nationals Seeding Implication: The NCHBC Regional System gives out all Auto bids for HomeSchool Basketball Nationals Division 1. There are only a handful of At Large bids awarded for D-I, if your team doesn’t have a marquee win over a HomeSchool opponent your performance at Regionals might be the only shot at a Division I bid. The Regional Champions will are also guaranteed a #1 or #2 overall seed in their Class (applies to age groups that will be using the Gold Ball Showdown Series Format.) Regional Championships are the final games counted for Nationals Seeding, no games after Regionals have any bearing on Nationals Seeding.
