Player Eligibility Rules:

The NWA League is a youth development program to serve as a feeder system to the local Junior High programs. It is designed to provide a regional competitive league for local school and community based teams. It is not an “AAU” or All Star team league that is for the grassroots summer programs. The NWA League is designed to provide the best players from their respective communities and schools the opportunity to play together and prepare them for their local school programs.

Therefore, ALL Teams are school based (primarily Grades 5 and 6) or community based teams (4th grade Division)) to be eligible to play in the NWA League. Players must attend participating school or live in the participating community.

Exceptions to this Rule: 

-If a player is playing up a grade but will attend the same feeder HS school as the team he/she is playing for. This exception applies primarily to a 4th grader playing up on a 5th grade team.

-If a player is home schooled or attends a private school not participating in the League he/she may play for a participating school in their hometown. This player, to be eligible, must be granted permission to play by the local High School coach and/or youth basketball governing club.

-Feeder schools may combine their players from two separate schools into one team to be more competitive in the League.
