The Northwest Middle School Basketball Association will be again be holding the Oregon Middle School Basketball Championship on March 5-6 (Girls) and March 12-13 (Boys) in Bend, Sisters and Redmond. The Association will also be running the Washington Middle School Basketball Championship on March 15-16 in Spokane.
Teams finishing 1st Place in an OAB tourney in December-February will automatically qualify for their respective state’s Championship. Based on the number of entires per division, we will also be issuing bids to 2nd and 3rd place teams. To be eligible, each Qualifying team must be a “high school feeder” team, meaning its players must reside in the same high school boundary. All-star or select teams will only be eligible if they consist of players in the same HS boundary. Exceptions are reviewed on a case by case basis by the Championship committee.
Soon after qualifying in an OAB tourney, head coaches will receive an email or phone call with an invitation and more detail on how to register for the State Basketball Championship.
