The 2nd annual Missouri Middle School Basketball Championship is a qualifier-based* tournament with two divisions (Club and School) and features top competition from all corners of MO. Game sites include the University of Missouri campus!
*Registered teams from the COVID-canceled March 2020 State Tournament are auto-qualified for our 2022 event and all previously approved player eligibility documents will carry forward.
Teams earn their spot at State by placing 1st or 2nd in an official Qualifier Tournament or League.
98 boys and girls teams registered for the inaugural Missouri State Youth Basketball Championship. Competitors represented 200 zip codes and 152 different towns across the state.
COVID-19 put a halt to our tournaments in 2020 and 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 every corner of Missouri this season!
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.
