Tournament Details/Forms

Here is the information to help you organize your team for the NHSA Tournament (8-man Football). We look forward to having your team participate in this year’s tournament. Your families can go to our website to download the Tournament Brochure which includes a form for them to fill out and give to you.

Laguna Beach Christian Resort (LBCR) has plenty of rooms, suites and houses available for teams, cheerleaders, families and friends. There is a $140 fee for every person staying at LBCR (family maximum $700 & children under 6 free). It includes 4 nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday) housing and hot breakfast each morning (Saturday, Sunday and Monday). (There is an additional $50 fee for rooms that have only 1 or 2 people staying in them).
No pets allowed. There are some rooms that have a small kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.

1. Team Registration Form-fill out and either email to us or mail to us. You will also need to include a $500 check (or call if want to pay by credit card). This will secure your spot in the tournament but is not applied to amount owed for staying at Laguna Beach Christian Resort (LBCR).

2. NHSA Brochure Go to the website and download then print out the NHSA Brochure. Have each family fill out the short form on the brochure and turn it in to you. On the form it asks for the number of beds each family needs in their room. Once they turn in their form, you will know how much to collect from each family. Teams usually stay together (players and one or more coaches/chaperones in a dorm or house at LBCR).

3. We recommend you have a “team coordinator/administrator”. Instead of having all your people call and do things individually, they will be the person to have most or all the info for your team. They can call or email questions and then distribute that info to your families. They should also collect money and track who is coming, etc. You pay us with one or two checks from your team versus each family paying us. Please mail a check on or before November 1st for your players, families and all others staying at LBCR. If families want to pay by credit card and your team does not handle credit cards, then have those families call us at 770-714-5775. For any additional persons or families that decide after November 1st you can pay when you arrive at LBCR. Payment due by November 1st should be mailed to: NHSA, 1766 Cape Coral Pkwy E, #101, Cape Coral, FL 33904

4. Teams stay together in one of the dorms or houses at LBCR with two or more coaches/dads/chaperones. Each person staying on LBCR needs to bring their own sheets, blankets, pillows and towels. A sleeping bag works well for players.

5. Each team has access to a fully equipped commercial kitchen (larger than regular kitchens at home) that has a dining room/meeting room attached. This allows you to have a place to prepare any meals (lunch/dinner/snacks) for your team in lieu of having to go out to eat at restaurants.

6. All room reservations go through the NHSA office not through LBCR. Your families can arrive at LBCR at various times, pick up the keys to their room when they get to PCB and get settled in whenever they arrive. Families wanting to come on an earlier day can do so. There is an additional cost for each additional day. Unfortunately, we cannot have anyone stay additional days (after Tuesday morning). Check-out is 10:00 CST on Tuesday.
