Nike Tournament of Champions

December 18-22, 2018
Phoenix, AZ




The 22nd Annual Nike Tournament of Champions will be held December 18-22, 2018 in Phoenix, AZ. The event will feature 112 elite teams from 22 States, including the majority of the preseason top 25 teams in the nation.

Established in 1997, the Tournament of Champions is hailed as the greatest interscholastic basketball event – for boys or girls – in the world, and has long been considered the de facto National Championship for American girls’ basketball.

Since its inception, the Tournament has produced the consensus National Champions 19 times in the last 21 years; during that span it has hosted a remarkable total of 377 State Championship teams from 42 different States. The Tournament has also been a showcase for most of the brightest young stars in the sport; over two decades it has played host to hundreds of high school All-Americans and future collegiate and professional stars, and its alumni include 8 Olympians and 22 WNBA All-stars, including five #1 draft picks.

The event will be live streamed by BallerTV.  Click here to learn more.
