Each State Basketball Championship is presented and managed by the National Middle School Basketball Association ("NMSBA"). Founded in 2012, the NMSBA's mission is to connect the thousands of independent middle school leagues and tournaments in each state. A major result of the NMSBA's efforts has been birth of the State Basketball Championship which it governs today.
The State Basketball Championships have become the largest Qualifier-based tournaments in their respective states with 200-500+ teams in some events. The State tourneys feature each states' top teams while offering a division for ALL based on the type of team - (1) Club or (2) School, Feeder or Township. When size allows, divisions are further divided into Gold and Silver brackets to promote balanced competition.
The NMSBA has established an Executive Board plus individual groups of State Representatives for each tournament. The Board members and State Reps constitute a proud team that not only shares a passion for youth basketball, but also has decades of basketball experience at many levels - playing, coaching, and managing tournaments and leagues. The team members manage the many details of the State Basketball Championship - such as coordinating gym schedules and referees - and also the important task of seeding the tournament teams. The team has visibility as to the strength of the Qualifier leagues and tournaments, and most importantly, the teams, to ensure a fair and unbiased approach to early round match-ups.
