Wide Geographic Diversity

114 boys and girls teams registered for the 2020 State Championship which was canceled just days before tip-off due to COVID-19. Players hailed from 251 zip codes and 176 different towns across Illinois.

COVID also put a halt to our tournament in 2021, but we have our sights set on the 2021-2022 season - and it's shaping up to be our biggest and best. We can't wait to welcome top teams from North, South, and Central Illinois next year! 



Eligibility

All team rosters are verified by the State Eligibility Committee prior to tournament play. Last season, we reviewed 15,730 Proof of Eligibility documents!
