This area of basketball is exploding with activity and participation seems to be almost a year round. Each city has an organized group of coaches and players who play in tournaments and host clinics. Here is just one organization to mention:
UNITED STATES BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
The USBA offers tournaments nationwide for boys and girls teams, grades 3rd – 12th (9u-18+). The USBA season begins each year in January and ends with our USBA National Championship each summer.
The goal of the USBA is to provide first class, quality tournaments for teams throughout the United States in a rewarding, positive and instructional environment. The USBA firmly believes that the game of basketball plays an important role in helping shape our young people’s lives. While all our tournaments are demanding and competitive, we also place a major emphasis on fair play and sportsmanship.
If your team currently plays in other National Tournament venues, we ask that you consider us in addition to your current tournaments as well. Click on the available links for information regarding tournaments, membership, FAQ’s, rules and even information about hosting a USBA tournament.
Where we really are “All Basketball. All The Time.”
