HOW CAN I BE INVITED TO ATTEND THE CP3 NATIONAL MIDDLE SCHOOL COMBINE?:
The CP3 National Middle School Combine is an invitation-only event. In order to be eligible to attend, you must be in middle school (current 6th-7th-8th grade), and receive an official invitation to attend. A PLAYER NOMINATION FORM MUST BE SUBMITTED FOR ANY PLAYER(S) THAT WISH TO ATTEND THE CP3 NATIONAL MIDDLE SCHOOL COMBINE. Once the player form has been submitted, it will be reviewed, and a determination will be made as to if the player will be invited to attend (based on the dates above). Please note the difference between a "nomination" versus an "invitation". Additionally, once awarded an invitation, all invited players must confirm their attendance by completing the registration form (and subsequent payment/"registration fee").
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CP3NMSC EAST VERSUS CP3NMSC WEST?
The CP3 National Middle School Combine offers two (2) unique qualifying events for the prestigious CP3 Rising Stars National Camp each year. The CP3NMSC East and CP3NMSC West events are intended to be identical in terms of talent, schedule, and structure. The only difference is location with the intent of making travel more convenient for players hoping to earn their future invitations to #CP3RS. Both events are awarded by invitation-only and players invited to attend are allowed to participate in either or both the CP3NMSC East and/or CP3NMSC West.
I SUBMITTED A PLAYER NOMINATION AND RECEIVED AN INVITATION VIA EMAIL. WHAT'S NEXT?:
Congratulations! Once awarded an invitation, all invited players must confirm their attendance by completing the registration form and registration fee. The registration fee (price listed on the registration page) covers the cost of players' time on the court and also includes a gear order and media package. Included in the gear order as part of the registration fee is a Jordan Brand jersey, Jordan Brand shorts, and Jordan Brand bookbag. Players are allowed to wear the shoes of their choice for the duration of the event. Additional gear and limited items are made available for purchase during the event. Included in the media package as part of the registration fee is a professional headshot, personalized photo shoot, and on-camera interview. Additional media add-ons are available for purchase (player mixtapes/highlights, professional action photos, player profiles/evaluations, etc).
DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE CANCELLATION INSURANCE? WHAT IS CANCELLATION INSURANCE?
Cancellation insurance is an optional purchase protection for your CP3NMSC registration. More details about our cancellation insurance policy are available by CLICKING HERE.
IS STAYING AT THE HOST HOTEL MANDATORY?
NO! Staying at the host hotel is recommended but not mandatory for campers and families. The host hotel offers a limited number of discounted rooms under our "CP3" block. As a guest at the host hotel, campers will have additional opportunities to interact with CP3 staff and other CP3 guests while offering the most convenient location in terms of proximity to our host gym.
IS PLAYER CHECK-IN MANDATORY ON FRIDAY?
YES! Each player must arrive on Friday, November 1st, 2019. Doors will open for check-in on Friday, November 1st, 2019 beginning at 6:00pm EST and will close at 9:00pm EST. Missing check-in on Friday, November 1st, 2019 may result in the respective camper(s) forfeiting their roster spot(s).
WHAT TAKES PLACE DURING MANDATORY PLAYER CHECK-IN ON FRIDAY? HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I ALLOW?
The CP3 National Middle School Combine provides first-class exposure opportunities and we want all participants to receive the full experience. In all, the check-in process and media sessions will take approximately 1.5-2 hours. Please anticipate long lines during this process. The earlier you arrive, the better! During check-in, players receive their camp gear and can shop for additional items at the camp store, have their official combine measurements recorded, take part in a "meet and greet" session with media members, and will be photographed by our team of professional photographers for complimentary action shots and a professional headshot.
ARE TRAVEL, BOARD, AND FOOD INCLUDED IN THE CP3NMSC REGISTRATION FEE?
