IMPORTANT STATE COLLEGE HOTEL UPDATE (JAN 15, 2023). After establishing dates and securing courts for our championship weekends in State College, two major concert events were announced. Bruce Springsteen (Mar 18) and Kenny Chesney (Mar 25) will be playing in the Bryce Jordan Center which has cut deeply into the supply of local hotel rooms. As of January 15th, all rooms in State College have been sold. If your team and families are traveling to State and have not booked lodging, you are urged to do so NOW at a hotel in an outlying community (i.e. Altoona, Clearfield, Lock Haven, etc). Links to all available properties can be found here: Tourney Hotels and all rooms have been discounted for our tournament families.

Despite the hotel shortage, which is beyond our control, we are expecting the largest field of teams ever to compete in March. We hope to see you there!

At Large Bids

On a case by case basis the State Tournament Committee will grant a State qualification to a team that showed success in a league or tournament.  If, in the view of the Committee, that team finished near the top against equal or better competition than a State qualifying league or tourney, then an At Large bid to State  may be granted.

Would you like your team to be considered for an invitation to the Pennsylvania Middle School Basketball Championship?  If so, please submit the form below.
