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.  In addition to the NSID requirement, the only requirements to participate in the  USBA Nationals are; participation in at least one USBA “regular season” event*,  USBA roster, and USBA Parent Waiver of Liability forms.  All forms can be found under “Resources”.

*If you cannot find a USBA Regular Season tournament to attend, we do offer many “At-Large Invitations” to the USBA Nationals. Please contact the USBA office at 704-649-6812, or
