The inaugural New Jersey Middle School Basketball Championship is a qualifier-based tournament with two divisions - Travel/Community/Township/School teams and a division for Club teams. The State Championship tournament features top competition from all corners of New Jersey. 

Top Teams to Battle for 2023 State Titles
Coaches, Players and Families: "See YOU At State!" in Manalapan


All team rosters are verified by the State Eligibility Committee prior to tournament play.  Last season, we reviewed 17,250 Proof of Eligibility documents!

GRANDFATHER EXCEPTION:  Any player who participated in a prior State tournament is automatically approved for 2023 play and does not need to re-submit Proof of Eligibility (POE) documents.  However, ALL players, returning or not, are required to have a new Parent/Guardian Waiver submitted for 2023.
