  4. Promoting the values of the Basketball England talent pathway and PDF (player development framework)

In addition the top teams in each competition will proceed to the NYBL Finals, played on Norfolk Finals Day on Sunday 29 March 2020.

An affordable fee of £35 will be charged per team on each tournament date, with no up-front entry fee. The final tournament date is free for those teams who enter every preceding tournament throughout the year. Every team will play at least two games per tournament date, with each age group afforded a two-hour time-slot.
