The first and second place teams from each group and division will earn a bid to enter the 2018 U.S. Open Basketball Championships for boys on June 30-July 3 and for girls on July 19-22 in Westfield, Indiana. Third and fourth place teams will receive waitlist bids should first and second place teams not accept their bids.

Divisions of Competition


Each grouping offers two divisions of play to account for varying levels of competition and ability: a Stars division and a Stripes division. Qualified teams will enter into the same division of play in which they participated in during the Official Qualifier event.


  • Stars division: This division is made up of established and competitive club travel teams


  • Stripes division: This division is made up of new and locally-based club or recreational teams

Eligibility Verification


It is the responsibility of the head coach to provide age and grade (if applicable) verification for

players at any time throughout the event. Permitted forms of player age verification include birth certificates, passports and government-issued IDs (originals, hard copies or digital copies).


Permitted forms of player grade verification include school-issued report cards or school administrator confirmation of grade issued on school letterhead (originals, hard copies or digital copies).



To qualify to the U.S. Open Basketball Championships, teams must participate in approved USA Basketball Official Qualifiers, such as the PSB Invitational. Top finishers from the 8th grade, 13U and 12U Stars and Stripes qualifying divisions in each event will earn an official bid to the championships.

Coach License Requirements


All coaches and bench personnel participating in the 8th grade, 13U or 12U divisions must have a valid USA Basketball Coach License on file with USA Basketball prior to the start of the event. The coach license process requires successfully passing a background check which generally

takes 7-10 business days to process. To obtain a coach license, visit https://community.usab.com/.

real-time verification of licensure onsite. Only actively licensed coaches are permitted on the bench to coach.
