The 5th annual Illinois Middle School Basketball Championship is a qualifier-based tournament with two divisions (Club and School) and features top competition from all corners of the Illinois.
Game sites include the University of Illinois campus with 10 courts under one roof!
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!
All team rosters are verified by the State Eligibility Committee prior to tournament play. Last season, we reviewed 15,730 Proof of Eligibility documents!
State Reps attend many of our Qualifier Tournaments to award top teams with their Gold Ticket invitation to State.
