ALL-STAR GAME PROGRAM

ALL-STAR SELECTION PROCESS

The Indiana Christian Basketball Alliance organizes All-Star Games each year for Boys and Girls who have played at the varsity level. The following information will be of benefit to those home school sports clubs who wish to have a player nominated and selected for the program.

ICBA All-Star Director Timeline & Guidelines

Keep Craig (of the Indiana Pacers) posted with updates. Everyone pays regular ticket prices and the discount amount is totaled by the Pacers and returned later. One representative from each team must place ticket orders. Be SURE to state that you’re with ICBA All-stars.

Guidelines/Selection Process

One all-star from each boys’ team and two from each girls’ team (dependent upon number of teams in ICBA that year) will be chosen. Nominations will be submitted around January, when a nomination packet will be sent out to the coaches. Nomination deadline is to be set by the ICBA All-Star Director. After regional (guys) and state (girls) tournament play is completed, coaches will be chosen and teams rounded out to the full roster of 14 players, maximum.
