The 11th Annual State Championship presented by Vacasa is a school-only tournament featuring qualified squads from throughout Oregon.   More than 300 teams are expected back to the high desert this season, where families experience an exciting season-ending getaway.




UNMATCHED GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSITY

After a long season of seeing the same teams, our coaches and players love the fresh competition featured at the Oregon Middle School Basketball Championship.  No other event in the state offers such a wide geographic range of school-based teams.  The 2022 State tournament featured players from 189 zip codes and 117 towns across Oregon.  Check out the map above with all of the hometowns represented at State!
