COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - The National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA) announces a Request for Proposals to host and serve as the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the Junior, Adult and/or Women’s Division National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament/s as part of the 2020 Toyota National Championship Series.
The goal for all events within the Toyota National Championship Series is to create lasting memories via a great athlete and member experience. We also intend to help the selected LOC in further promoting wheelchair basketball in their community. This will evoke pride in local athletes and ideally help attract more athletes, fans, and partners. Our goal and obligation are to run the events in the most financially responsible way possible. We believe with the below formula, and hard work by all, we can do this (minimally) at a breakeven level for the LOC and NWBA. Any profit created is expected to go to the LOC for more local adaptive sports programming.
Formal Bid Proposals should outline all necessary deliverables and are due by 12:00 p.m. Mountain time on Friday, May 31.
A formal Request for Proposal Form to help guide potential host on submissions will be available by Friday, May 17, at https://www.nwba.org/rfpnationals.
Submit Formal Bid Proposals to Brandon McBeain at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bid Proposals will be reviewed by Divisional Leadership, NWBT Working Committee and NWBA Board of Directors.
Per NWBA Bylaws, Article I Field of Play, Section 8 National Tournaments: “The Executive Director, with approval of the NWBA Board of Directors, shall select the date and location of the NWBT”.
Bids for the 2020 Toyota National Championship Series will be awarded by July 1st. A formal announcement of the bid awardees will be announced to NWBA membership following July 1st during a mutually agreed upon time and date.
