“Which State has the BEST ballers?”
The 4th Annual U.S. Basketball Games Tournament will unleash some of the most talented, high flying, rim-rattling youth basketball players in the country. The U.S. Basketball Games Tournament will explode onto the travel basketball scene like a backboard shattering slam dunk and will allow middle and high school student-athletes from Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Illinois, Tennessee, North Carolina, Michigan, Mississippi, Louisiana, Virginia, Washington and South Carolina an opportunity to partake in a once in a lifetime experience of competition, hoops and education.
Former NBA Stars, Eric Snow and Dale Ellis will serve as event Ambassadors for the U.S. Basketball Games, along with other sports personalities.
The general concept: Each participating State will conduct a State-wide “Invitation Only” tryout or special invitation for players (Boys and Girls) 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U, 18U as of August 1, 2019. Players from across the aforementioned states will compete for a prestigious spot on each respective team. To have a spot on each team, student-athletes must be in that appropriate grade, of appropriate age and selected by that states Advisory Board & Directors.
Once each team is selected, they will play in the U.S. Basketball Games which will take place in Atlanta, Georgia August 10 – 11, 2019 at the beautiful Lake Point Sports Complex.
The U.S. Basketball Games/Jr. NBA Skills Competition will take place on Friday, August 9, 2019 @ Lake Point Sports.
