Benefits of Attending a NCHBC Conference Tournament
#1 Regional Seeding
- The winner of each NCHBC 2019 Conference Tournament (this includes the Great Lakes, Mid South, Ohio Valley River, & MCHC Conferences as well as the four mentioned above) will be the #1 overall Seed in the 2019 Regional Tournament the team attends. If more than one Conference Champion attends the same Regional Tournament, the Champions will be guaranteed the top overall seeds using a tie breaker system TBA.
#2 Conference Awards
- All Conference Teams– Each Conference will have a High School & Middle School 1st and 2nd Team. All-Conference teams will be voted on by conference coaches and the officials.
- Conference POY Awards– Each Conference will have a High School Player of the Year Awards that coincide with Regional POY Awards voted on by conference 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 Valley Conference & Bravos River Valley Conference 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.
