Team Guide Book

The Team Guide Book is a great resource for teams to use as it outlines team operations and highlights important information for competing in the NWBA. The Team Guide will help teams and administrators stay on track with dates, deadline, forms and other areas of compliance for teams. Visit the NWBA Resource Center at https://www.nwba.org/resourcecenter to view the updated version of the Team Guide Book. It is important to regularly check the Resource Center for an updated version of Team Guide Book as this is a "green" document and small revisions will be made when appropriate.
