Looking for Club Bench Refs

Now that the team list and most rosters have been finalized, we’d like to begin recruiting referees to schedule for the Bench Championship in a few weeks. Bruce and Joe will be there refereeing full time, but it would be great if we could get more non-playing referees to volunteer, and we encourage every team to provide one person to referee.

Also, you get paid $10/game to head ref, and $5/game to secondary ref!!!!

Email joe@nahardcourt.com!!! No google signup form this time, if you want to get paid and volunteer just reach out to Joe..

Bid for WHBPC 2015

During the worlds, there were discussions between the EHBPA, Australasia, and the NAH regarding the worlds.

Timaru, NZ will be submitting a formal bid to host worlds in late 2015 within the next few weeks. It’s not expected that any other clubs will compete for that (assuming the bid is up to the standard expected). If there is an NA club that wants to host in 2015, then please contact tournaments@nahardcourt.com before September 30th (a formal bid is not needed, but at least a firm intention). The deadline is so that Timaru can proceed with their planning and people can get an early start on booking tickets..
