2018 NAHBPC Bids & Regional Qualifiers

Welcome to the official call for bids for the 2018 NAHBPC. This year’s call is going to be different than past years. As you might know last year the NAH brought an added level of support and collaboration to the NAHBPC than in past years. We helped create schedules for the tournament, we aided in the collection of team names and registration. We used our website and social media platform to distribute information and communicate to team captains directly.

This year we will be doing all of this and more. This year we will be giving out seed money to the club successful in hosting the 2018 NAHBPC. That’s right, we’re giving out money! Up to $2,275.00!

Here is a quick breakdown of the money we will be offering up to a host club looking to take on this years event:

$500 Winning bid (two courts)
$300 Additional Courts (for each additional court) max 4
$75/court Lights (until at least 10pm) to a maximum of $225
$50/court Court Access (symmetrical squad ready doors) to a maximum of $150
$100/court Reffing facilities (elevated, covered stands with functional scoreboards)
50% contribution Free Food (match costs on food, snacks, beverages) max $100/day
$5/Game Refereeing (for every game in the tournament we will front $5 for reffing)

These are the financial perks we will be offering up to the host of the 2018 NAHBPC. This along with the support from our team and the skills of past tournament organizing, we feel any club in the NAH has the ability to take this on and we encourage you to submit a bid. Interested hosts should consider how else they would fundraise for the NAHBPC in conjunction with NAH funds. Bids should be submitted via email (mark@nahardcourt.com) with the documents provided here.

The 2018 NAHBPC should be held no earlier than September 21st and no later than October 22, 2018. If you would like to host outside of this time window, please contact the NAH Tournament Organiser to discuss the feasibility.

Regional Qualifiers

Like last year, we are using the new prorated ranking system for regional allocation which factors a region’s performance over the previous four years. For a more information on 2018 regional qualifiers, read more here.

NAHBPC 2017 Open Registration & Lottery

The NAHBPC will have a small open registration to fill one or three spots in the championship. We are asking for interested squads to submit 5-player or 6-player rosters. If your squad competed at a regional qualifier please state which one and your finishing position. We will consider your regional finishing spot as means for selection. Squads formed without having competed in a regional qualifier will also be considered through a random lottery. This will not be a click race.

If three or more full squads register, there will be three squads invited to attend. If fewer than three teams register, only one squad will be invited to attend. This policy is due to planning out the schedule of events with an even number of teams. This will be a very short application period as the event is approaching quickly. Please submit by noon EST July 16th. Selection will be made July 17th. Once selected, you will be contacted with instructions on how and who to pay. All registration payments are final and no refunds will be issued. Squads should only register if they are prepared to commit to travelling to the event.

The NAHBPC is in Frederick, MD on July 28th-30th hosted by Lancaster United with support from DC Bike Polo and the NAH. Find more information about travel and accommodations at the official website: nahbpc17.com

All submissions and inquiries should be made to Mark Aseltine (mark@nahardcort.com).
