NCSLMA began sponsoring HSBOB in 2017-18.  District level competitions will be held each spring with regional competitions following them.  We are looking for volunteers to organize regional competitions.  If you are interested please email Karen Meier.


The System-Level High School Compliance Form must be completed and signed by each school participating in a district-level HBOB competition this year.  The Head Coach (school media coordinator or other certified staff at the school)  must join or renew NCSLMA membership before submitting the online form.

The compliance form is now found under the Events tab.  In order to see the event, you must be a current NCSLMA member and be logged in.  If you have teams on several levels, you may register for the event more than once.   Deadline for forms is November 1, 2020.

We would like to have one coordinator and two representatives from each region, so please consider joining the committee.

For questions or to join the committee, contact HBOB Chair Karen Meier at karenmeier@ncslma.org.
