After the COVID-19 related cancellations of the 2020 and 2021 state tournaments, the staff at State Basketball Championship is thrilled to welcome back our thousands of basketball families in 2022! For years, our event has offered teams an exciting season-ending getaway to Spokane, focused on family fun. We are expecting over 500 teams again and have added the brand-new 9-court downtown Spokane venue, named “The Podium”, to our mix of State tournament facilities!
All teams with registration fee credits from the canceled 2020 State tournament are automatically qualified for, and can apply partial credits to, our event in March of 2022. At this time, no action needs to be taken by coaches/teams to carry forward your auto-qualification and registration credit. In mid-October, we will email teams with instructions for redeeming their credits, which may also be transferred to other teams within your program.
Also new for this season, all previously approved player Proof of Eligibility documents will carryforward!

March 11-13 (GIRLS) & March 18-20 (BOYS) | 2022
The 9th Annual State Championship is a qualifier-based tournament with two divisions (Club and School) and features teams from all corners of Washington.
Teams earn their spot at State by placing 1st or 2nd in an official Qualifier Tournament or League.
A record-breaking 518 boys and girls teams registered for the 2020 State Tournament. Competitors represented 335 zip codes and 216 different towns across Washington.
COVID-19 put a halt to the tournament this year, but we have our sights set on the 2021-2022 season - and it's shaping up to be our biggest and best. We can't wait to welcomeback top teams from every region of Washington!
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.
