Reporting Scores: Teams must report their Scores to us so that we can update the brackets online. This is essential, not only for the teams at Regionals, but every result at Regionals has the ability to impact Nationals seeding, thus teams from around the nation are watching the results from each Regional. Each coach needs to assign one person from their team to report the scores, win or lose. The Heartland Regional scores must be texted to 405-323-3110  When reporting the score 1st list the Regional (Big South, Heartland, Midwest, or South Central) Age Group, Bracket info (Gold, Division III, etc.) Team names & Final Scores.

BRACKETS– Click Here to view the Heartland Regional Brackets! Brackets are always subject to change as we do attempt to accommodate coaches and players who play on multiple teams. If you print brackets it is still important to check the online version before heading to a gym as the online version are the official brackets and are always the most up to date version.

Game Time Change Request: Head Coaches & Program Directors only. If your team needs to request a game time change TEXT Cheryl at 405-831-1409. When requesting the game change 1st list Regional (Big South, Heartland, Midwest, or South Central), Age group, Bracket info (Gold, Division III, etc.), and full reason for the requested change. Full disclosure, time change request that are made within 12 hours of the game time scheduled have very little chance of being made. Time change request are something that we TRY to accommodate the best we can for players who double roster, however, it is imperative that the request come in as soon as you are aware of the need for them. Delaying the request reduces the likelihood of the change being made.

Pre-Game Prayer & Scripture: The NCHBC Regional Tournaments this year will feature pre-game prayer and scripture, this is something that we have a 25 year history of doing at the National Championships and we are thrilled we will be adding to Regionals across the nation.


Colossians 3:17

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

(Thought: May our words and actions reflect the love of Christ to those around us, and show our praise to Him for giving us this opportunity.)


Joshua 24:15

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

(Thought: Today, let us choose to serve the Lord with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind.)


Joshua 1:7

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

(Thought: God’s prosperity only comes through obedience to His Word. May we courageously obey the Lord in all we do.)
