The NWBA Bylaws and Policies & Procedures require all NWBA events to be sanctioned by the NWBA. NWBA Events may include, but are not limited to, hosting a NWBA game between two teams; NWBA tournament (more than two registered NWBA teams); NWBA clinic/camp; NWBA fundraiser; and any other type of wheelchair basketball event involving NWBA members. The NWBA will not formally recognize or promote an event until reviewed and approved.
Please be prepared to provide event information during the Event Sanction Application. We understand arrangements may not be finalized at this time, however, try to make your application as detailed as possible.
Once you have submitted your application, please allow 3-5 business days for it to be reviewed and approved. A copy of the submitted applications will be automatically sent to NWBA staff and leadership for consideration of an NWBA sanctioned event.
If your application is denied and your event is classified as "Unsanctioned," you will have the opportunity to submit another application with more information. The NWBA will review your event again and will sanction your event once the required information is provided. For assistance with editing your registration entry, click here and follow the steps provided. Unsanctioned events will still appear on the NWBA events calendar, but will be tagged as "Unsanctioned."
If your event is approved, it will appear on the NWBA events calendar as "Sanctioned." It is important to consistently update logistics and add new information to your event on the NWBA events calendar. Application fees are fully refunded for events that are not hosted.
The NWBA will be providing an Event Resource Guide for all NWBA events. The Event Resource Guide will include information on executing event operations, training materials for table officials, NWBA scorebook (shipped) and a communication plan for an event.
