On the weekends of March 4th-6th (Girls) and 11th-13th (Boys), 2022, the top teams in the state will meet in beautiful Central Oregon to battle it out for the 10th annual Oregon Middle School Basketball Championship. After a long regular season playing against other teams in your area, the State Basketball Championship offers teams the shot to compete against fresh faces from all corners of our state. This is not your ordinary league tournament, but rather the chance of a lifetime for all kids... "Remember the time we went to State!?!"
♦ School Gold and School Silver level competition for Boys and Girls grades 4-8.
♦ All teams will play a minimum of 4 games. Some will play 5 games.
♦ Play begins as early as 4pm Friday and the latest Sunday games tip off at 4:45pm.
♦ Entry fees are regularly $400 per team, however early sign up and multiple team discounts are available.
♦ Awards for teams and coaches for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places at both levels
♦ Game results immediately posted to the website after completion
There's more! Here's what you'll get when we See You at STATE!
♦ Players and coaches will play other 'school-based' teams that they've never faced before. We'll again have teams traveling from all over Oregon: the Portland area, Willamette Valley, Southern Oregon, Brookings, Hermiston and Pendleton. Of course, there'll be some hometown teams representing Central Oregon also!
♦ Partner hotels and resorts offering discounted rate.
♦ Competition will be held at local area facilities. Friday evening & Saturday will feature exciting pool play with Sunday bringing the magic of the semi-finals and Championship games.
♦ The State Basketball Championship works to provide certified high school officials for all games.
♦ Pre-determined scoreboard operators and scorebook keepers. No need for State coaches to pull visiting parent volunteers from the stands. So parents can sit back and relax (if watching your child compete in the Championship is relaxing?!)
All of the above while enjoying Central Oregon - one the top travel destinations in the USA! "Play Hooky Monday" - stay Sunday night and enjoy a family day on Monday... at Mt. Bachelor or just relaxing in the ever-present Central Oregon sunshine!

Feedback from recent State tourneys
We really enjoyed the tournament! It will be memories that last a life time for all of us...We have some younger teams that have been influenced by the experience they had watching their brothers at the State Tournament and are looking forward to Seeing You at State for many years to come.

I wanted to thank you for putting together an amazing tournament this weekend. It was well organized with extremely nice facilities. State College was the perfect location to host this event.
Our girls had a blast and made memories that will last a life time.
We look forward to year two next year!
