USA Basketball is committed to working inclusively with event operators by accrediting tournaments that uphold USA Basketball standards.  Any 5x5 youth basketball tournament in the United States may apply to join the USA Basketball Tournament Alliance. By growing the alliance network, we can collectively ensure that more kids are experiencing the game the right way. 


The primary contact and on-site tournament director for the tournament must both hold a valid USA Basketball Coach License prior to submitting the application.  If either of these personnel are not currently licensed, please start this process HERE.
