At Large Bids

Occasionally, the Tournament Committee will grant  qualification to a team that showed success in a non-automatic qualifying league or tournament.  If, in the view of the Committee, that team finished near the top against equal or better competition than a State qualifying league or tourney, then an At Large bid to State  may be granted.

Would you like your team to be considered for an invitation to the Heartland States Basketball Championship?  If so, please submit the form below.
