PARTICIPATING PLAYER RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS

All prospective players participating in the event must reside in:

1. The same state as their team's official address; or
2. A adjoining state, provided that no more than three team member(s) reside in adjoining states.

NCAA Adjoining State Rule Residency Requirements

FOR OUR TOURNAMENT TO REMAIN A CERTIFIED NCAA EVENT WE ARE REQUIRED TO VERIFY PRIOR TO COMPETITION THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS HAVE MET THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS.

In situations in which a team includes players from a metropolitan area located on a state border, the team may include more than three team members from adjoining states as long as each additional player resides within the metropolitan area. Residency is determined by the player's legal residence or the legal residence of his parent or legal guardian. An international player may use the legal address of the player's host family, provided the player, for a minimum of one academic year, has been a part of an educational exchange program or has attended high school locally while residing with the host family. Prep school players can use the address of the prep school for residency purposes if they have attended the prep school for at least one school year previous to the tournament.

PROHIBITIVE CONTACT
No team coach or player can have contact with any NCAA coach during the tournament. This includes, but is not limited to, the game sites as well as the hotel. At the game sites teams and coaches will be required to enter and sit on the opposite side of the gymnasium from the NCAA coaches. Please cooperate. Our gym site supervisors will strictly enforce this provision, as our NCAA certification depends on it.

 

PLAYER ELIGIBILITY
In order for a player to be eligible to participate in the event, he must meet one of the following three criteria:
a) have high school eligibility remaining:
b) be going to enroll in his first year of prep school in the fall of 2019 and meet the NCAA residency rule discussed above:
c) be an unsigned graduating senior 
d) ALL players must register online with NCAA BBCS: https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/enforcement/ecag/ECAG_AthleteRegistration.pdf  

Players interested in participating in NCAA sports must also register with the NCAA Eligibility Center:
https://web3.ncaa.org/ecwr3/  

Each athlete must have an account before renewing or registering in the Basketball Certification System. They only need the free account to particpate in NCAA-certified events. They can access the EC account via the following link - www.eligibilitycenter.org

 THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMPLIANCE WITH THESE REQUIREMENTS. SEE YOU AT THE EVENTS!
