The Championship is for boys and girls, grades 4-8th, and will be held at the five court Sporting Chance Center and on the U of A campus.
Our State tournaments are the largest qualifier-based events in the nation and require all teams to earn their spot at State through their performance in local leagues and tournaments. A few state tourneys will again have 300+ teams competing. Below are a few features that make our events unique:
- Competition. Separate divisions, and multiple levels, for school/feeder teams and for club/all-star teams. Divisions are grade-based which ensures balanced play against similar teams to yours.
- Proof of Eligibility. All players must submit documentation to verify their grade in school before their team becomes eligible to compete. School/feeder teams must also supply player addresses or school affiliation.
- Independently run. Our organization does not operate any other tournaments or leagues in the state. This ensures fair treatment of all teams for seeding, scheduling and assignment of courts and officials.
- Geographic diversity. Our events bring in teams from all parts of the state offering fresh competition rather than the same faces you see every weekend.
- Minimum 4 game guarantee and stopped clock games.
