REGISTER ASAP! ALL PREVIOUS SESSIONS HAVE SOLD-OUT IN ADVANCE. PLAYER REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE EARLY. THE CP3NMSCs ARE INVITATION-ONLY EVENTS AND REGISTRATION IS FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE PENDING AN INVITE TO ATTEND. PLEASE NOTE THAT A NOMINATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE AN INVITATION AND AN INVITATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE A ROSTER SPOT AT CP3NMSC EVENTS.
HOW CAN I BE INVITED TO ATTEND?
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 if the player will be invited to attend. 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 ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE CAMPS?
The CP3 National Middle School Combine offers several regional qualifying events for the prestigious CP3 Rising Stars National Camp each year. The CP3NMSCs 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 their choice of CP3NMSCs depending on roster availability.
I HAVE RECEIVED AN INVITATION TO ATTEND! WHAT'S NEXT?
Congratulations! Once a nomination form has been completed and you have been awarded an invitation, invited players must confirm their attendance by completing the registration form and registration fee immediately. Once again, please note that an invitation does not guarantee a roster spot. All previous CP3NMSC sessions have sold-out in advance. Registration will close immediately once the respective event reaches its roster capacity.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE REGISTRATION FEE?
The registration fee ($399.99) 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).
WHAT IS CANCELLATION INSURANCE? AM I REQUIRED TO PURCHASE THE 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.
WHAT TAKES PLACE AT THE MANDATORY CHECK-IN?
Fridays at each respective CP3NMSC are reserved for the "check-in" process. Each player must arrive on Friday of the respective CP3NMSC event. Doors will open for check-in at the designated location on Friday beginning at 6:30pm (local time) and will close at 9:30pm (local time). Missing check-in on Friday for the respective event may result in the respective camper(s) forfeiting their roster spot(s).
Please note that 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?
NO! Please note players and accompanying guardians are responsible for their own lodging, transportation, snacks, and meals for the duration of the CP3 National Middle School Combine. All of our gym locations have nearby meal options available at a reasonable distance and adequate time is allowed on the schedule as a break for dining. Concession stand options will be available strictly at the discretion of the host venue. Outside food and drinks are not likely to be permitted inside the host facility so please plan accordingly. Each camper is REQUIRED to have a guardian present for the duration of the event in case of an emergency.
ARE CP3NMSC EVENTS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC? IS THERE AN ADMISSION FEE?
YES! The CP3 National Middle School Combine is open to the public to enjoy. Limited seating is available. Personal chairs/seating are permitted at the discretion of the host facility. Spectators ARE NOT allowed on the court(s) at any time. Daily passes can be purchased for $15.00. Children under the age of three (3) years old are free. No weekend passes are available.
