How to qualify your team for the Championship

Eligible teams may qualify for the State Basketball Championship through their success on the hardwood during the 2019-20 season.  Those qualifying opportunities are listed below and consist of a team's standing in their middle school league or place of finish in qualifying tournaments throughout Kansas.  State Basketball Champions will be crowned in each of the two separate divisions: Club and School/Community.

State tournament reps will attend many of the listed qualifier tournaments.   Our reps will award qualifying coaches with a Golden Ticket invite to State and answer any questions from families about the trip to Wichita! - Click here for a list of 2019-20 Qualified teams
