Eighteen National

Eighteen National is an "invite only" offering that is directly linked to NXT's "The Circuit". The Circuit serves as a national team circuit for National Programs with youth teams from the 2027 / 2028 / 2029 / 2030 grad years.

Starting in the Fall of 2022, there will be two events that each team will play in:

  • October 15th - 16th | Philadelphia 

  • December 27th - 28th | Orlando

After both events, the top 4 teams from each grad year will qualify for the Championship event that will be held on Memorial Day weekend in Spring 2023.

The Circuit will follow college rules, etc:

  • Shot clock

  • Four, 12 minute quarters (2 timeouts)

  • Stats will be kept and recorded
