USA Basketball is committed to working inclusively with event operators by accrediting tournaments that uphold USA Basketball standards.  Tournament accreditation is the pathway for teams to compete at the 2019 U.S. Open Basketball Championships, with select accredited tournaments also serving as part of the USA Basketball Alliance.  Accredited tournaments within the USA Basketball Alliance receive recognition, benefits and promotional assistance while tying into the U.S. Open Basketball Championships.  


The tournaments that are part of the Alliance will be determined by USA Basketball based on an application process. Tournaments will only be considered for the Alliance once an application is submitted. USA Basketball staff will review all submitted applications and reply with formal approval if the tournament has been approved to join the Alliance. 

Please complete this application to be considered to be named part of the USA Basketball Alliance and tie into the U.S. Open Basketball Championships qualifying pathway. The first section includes the requirements that must be upheld by all tournaments in the Alliance, while the second section asks for specific details of your tournament. Approval will be contingent upon agreeing to all requirements and tournament evaluation against all applications.
