Individuals can become a member for the first time or renew their membership with the NWBA.

The registration fee for athletes for the 2020-21 NWBA season will be:
For individuals registered on multiple teams, you will only be required to register and pay one time (i.e. athletes on an Junior, Adult Division (DI, DII or DIII) and/or Women's Division teams may register for those teams during one registration session).
Individual Registration dates are the same for Non-Athletes, which are individuals who serve in the following roles: Coach; Official; Classifier; Team Representative; Statistician; Athletic Trainer; Team Classification Reviewer; Equipment Manager; Administrator; Divisional and Conference Leadership; Board Directors; and Event Director. Only one entry for Non-Athlete Registration is required for individuals serving in various roles.
The registration fee for Non-Athletes for the 2020-21 NWBA season will be $60. Registered Adult Athletes (paid $30 membership due) that need to register also as a Non-Athlete will only be charged an additional $30 for the Non-Athlete fee when completing an entry for 2020-21 Non-Athlete Registration.
Non-Athletes, in order to ensure the safety of our Athletes, are required to successfully pass a background check, which is integrated directly into the registration process.
Individuals must have a verified NWBA Athlete and/or Non-Athlete Registration 10 days prior to their first competition at a NWBA sanctioned event. A complete Athlete and/or Non-Athlete Registration includes the successful completion of the following certifications: Background Check, Safe Sport Certification (if applicable), Coaches Certification (if applicable), Officials Certification (if applicable), Team Reviewer Certification (if applicable). All individuals registering within 10 days of an NWBA sanctioned event may NOT be eligible to participate. We highly encourage you to register as soon as possible to avoid issues later in the season. Make sure your games count towards Nationals.
More information will be provided when available regarding the process of obtaining and updating certifications with the NWBA.
