Last week, Governor Brown announced that Deschutes County and Crook County were returning to Extreme Risk for COVID-19. These counties, home to Bend, Redmond, Sisters and Prineville, were scheduled to host this year’s annual State tournament. Due to the resulting combination of strict indoor gathering restrictions (which currently allows just six people at a time) and local schools not renting gyms to outside groups, we are unable to offer the Oregon Middle School Basketball Championship for 2021. For years, our event has offered teams an exciting Central Oregon getaway focused on family fun. Prior to the recent rise in COVID cases and Governor’s announcement, we had held out hope of providing another great experience before the end of this school year.
All boys teams with registration fee credits from the canceled 2020 Boys State tournament are automatically qualified for, and can apply credits to, our event in March of 2022. No action needs to be taken by coaches/teams to carry forward your auto-qualification and registration fee credit. Credits may also be transferrable to other teams within your program. All previously approved player Proof of Eligibility documents will also carry forward to 2022.

March 4-6 (Girls) & March 11-13 (Boys) | 2022
The 10th Annual State Championship is a school-only tournament featuring qualified teams from all corners of Oregon.
A record-breaking 366 boys and girls teams registered for the 2020 State Tournament. Competitors represented 190 zip codes and 137 different towns across Oregon.
Though COVID-19 put a halt to our Boys & Girls Tournament this year, the 2020 Girls Championship weekend was a terrific success with 1st place teams representing Eastern & Southern Oregon, Portland Metro, and the Willamette Valley.
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.
