COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – The third day of NWBA Membership Week features an overview of the registration process to become a NWBA member for 2018-19. The NWBA is excited to implement a new and simple registration process to establish a membership platform for the NWBA. Each NWBA registered member will receive a unique membership number/ID.

The NWBA will continue recognize a valid term of membership to be August 1 to July 31 of the following year. Starting August 1, all individuals must have a valid NWBA membership to complete a registration on the NWBA website. This ensures the safeguard that only NWBA members are able to complete registrations for NWBA operations. If you are not an NWBA member, you will be automatically prompted to complete a membership when attempting to complete registrations on the NWBA website.

The new membership platform will also assist with team/league management tools, analyzing data and ease of completing registration for future seasons. The NWBA is excited to be working with SportsEngine on the prospect of services and products that will become available to NWBA members.
