About Nationals

The USBA National Tournament is the premier youth basketball tournament in the country for boys grades 2nd-12th. The top teams in the U.S. compete in a 5-day long tournament concluding with a championship game in which the USBA National Champion is crowned in three (3) different levels of competition. All participating USBA teams can get players grade verified via our partnership with National Sports ID ensuring fair play during the event.  The USBA roster, and USBA Parent Waiver of Liability forms will also need to be turned in at check-in.  All forms can be found under “Resources”.
