Are all games at one location?
YES! All games will take place at the downtown Raleigh Convention Center.
Where can I find the tournament schedule?
We will use the Tourney Machine online scheduling software for USBA Nationals. Links to the tournament schedule can be found on the USBA Nationals website once available.
When does my team need to check-in?
Online check in can be handled anytime between now and July 14th. ALL players must be checked in online before that time. Failure to check in a player will result in that athlete being unable to participate in the tournament.
What is required to check-in online?
You’ll want to gather a birth certificate (or state issued ID) AND a report card for all of your athletes. These documents will be uploaded to the National Sports ID site and verified by their trained staff. Once all your athletes are approved, you’ll be considered a verified team and are good to go for nationals!

Are there practice times for my team?
Yes, your team will be able to practice on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday during USBA Nationals.
Where will my team practices be held?
More information coming soon!
How long are my team practice sessions?
All practice sessions will be 1 hour. (60 minutes)
How much does it cost to book a practice?
One full court for 1 hour is $50.
How are pools generated for each division?
Pools are randomly generated at USBA Nationals. Once pools are randomly generated, the only deliberate change to a pool would be to separate teams from the same city who may end up placed in the same pool. Diversity in competition is what makes our national tournament special, so we’ll avoid your team having to play against a familiar opponent in pool play.
How many champions per division?
Three National Champions are crowned for each grade division. After pool play, the top teams from each pool will play out of the “National Division”. The next tier of teams will play out of the “American Division”, and the last place teams out of each pool will play out of the “Classic Division” – a champion is crowned for each of these divisions.
Does my team play everyday?
Most teams will start play on Tuesday, however a portion of the tournament field will begin tournament play on Wednesday July 17th. All teams are guaranteed to play a game on Friday July 19th. Friday will start single-elimination tournament play.
