Below is a friendly reminder about lodging since this is the “official” week of the NIT and we don’t want your families to stress about their lodging reservations in KC.

If your team, club, and  parents booked through the Hotel Planner link we provided for the NIT,  they DON”T need to worry or stress about cancelling any reservations with the NIT Lodging team or with Sarah or I. The hotels never received any official reservations or credit card information so there was NO charges applied to any credit cards for the February event!

A.15 Diamond/16 Diamond/17 Diamond/18 Diamond
These teams are team-travel unless family-travel option was chosen. We will book the rooms for players and coaches, and would like to request families that have chosen family travel to book the same hotel under our block BEFORE the deadline.

B. If you still need rooms AFTER the deadline, please email Krista McGivern (krista@ncacademyvb.org), our Travel Coordinator

Latest Event Update

April 27, 2021

Good Morning,  We are excited to announce that MVPCast will be the official live stream and video provider for the 2021 NIT. Due to the NIT being several days prior to the dead period ending we have created a COLLEGE COACH PORTAL  within the MVP Platform where college coaches can login to view ALL matches from the 2021 NIT. Having conversations with several D1 coaches we learned they are not concerned about watching live but rather get the highest quality video from the best athletes competing across the net for recruiting purposes.

The attached document has very VITAL information regarding the MVPCast platform and what we need from each team regarding their videographer.Please share this document with the parents that will be attending! 

The elected videographer from each team MUST complete the form below. This person will also receive a complementary wristband to get into the NIT and we will include this all-access pass when we send wristbands to the club in a few weeks. This person will also have a WIFI connection at the convention center that is strictly for them and CAN”T be shared due to bandwidth issues. In addition to this they must attend a 30 minute training with the owner of MVPCast via zoom on the dates located in the document.

If you have any questions please let me know ASAP! 

Also, please don’t forget to have your parents purchase spectator passes online ASAP! No limit on spectator capacity as KC came out today with new COVID updates.

April 16, 2021

The Triple Crown NIT will be sending a very informative email later today that will go to all parents we have in our database. Not  all parents will receive the email as we are still missing several rosters in our system for the NIT. Sarah Lauren from our team will be emailing you early next week about the Roster process and your attention to that email is very important. Any roster questions need to be handled by Sarah.

Attached is the updated Return to Play Protocols for the NIT. If you have questions please let me know. This will also be included in the email to parents.

Gate Passes for spectators will go on sale later today. Below is the information on our website. We have a new process in order to prevent ANY lines at the Convention Center and also we aren’t  limiting each team to a certain number of spectators per player. You are only allowed to have 3 coaches on your roster/bench at one time.

All wristbands purchased will be mailed DIRECTLY to the club the week of May 10th. We will include the manifest of who purchased tickets along with coupons to our TC Digs Store and small welcome gift for you. If there are any questions about tickets or spectators please direct them to me.

Lodging – Thanks for patience with the transition of reservations. If you have any questions about lodging please direct them to Sarah Dannettell or Sarah Molina as they are the experts and I’m phasing myself out of this project. They are plugging away and will take great care of you and your families.

Lastly, please encourage  your families to utilize our website for details rather than sending text, emails or phone calls to us. We are more than willing to assist but a lot of the questions can be answered on our website.
