NCHBC Gold Ball Showdown Series Format Info:


The average cost for a family of four to attend Nationals is estimated at $1,500 (hotel $900, gas $150, food $450).

We have a block of rooms reserved at the Hilton Garden Inn in Springfield for the week of the National Homeschool Basketball tournament. It is a nice hotel, and they will provide a very nice full breakfast for us each day. The rate is $130 per night. The arrival date will default to March 13th and the departure date will default to March 19th. I would recommend leaving the dates as is, because you can adjust them closer to the time after you have your plans firmed up. You don’t have to pay until you check out of the hotel in March, so please make this reservation as soon as possible.

Team USA:
If you do not have a whole team attending Regionals or Nationals, Team USA may be right for you. Team USA is made up of eligible Home School players from around the country whose team is not attending (or they aren’t on a team.) Team USA allows players to participate in an NCHC Post Season Event who would not be able to without Team USA. In Team USA you can request to play with your friends or teammates. We have seen many instances were 3-5 players from a team that played together all year and a coach want to play at an NCHC Post Season Event but don’t have enough to field a full team, Team USA is a great opportunity for these situations and others. Team USA’s are placed in divisions based on tournament needs/availability.

Team USA may not eliminate a team from the Gold Ball contention (at Nationals), or from the top bracket of the division they are placed in, at other NCHC Events (Regionals, etc.).
