Teams earn their spot at the New England Basketball Championship by placing 1st or 2nd in an Official Qualifier Tournament or League (listed below.)

States Reps will attend many of our Qualifier Tournaments to award qualifying coaches with a golden ticket invitation to States.

All Qualifier Events are run by independent, community-based youth sports organizations. Register to support a local Qualifier near you!
