Nov 28-29 Tickets

Spectator streaming access for all sessions

November 28-29 schedule will be available on Thursday, November 26th.

As many Western States have decided to postpone the start of the high school basketball season until after the first of the year, the Tournament of Champions will offer a series of club basketball events in Phoenix during the Fall and Winter.

Modeled after the NBA “bubble,” we are limiting this opportunity to 48 teams per session.

Each team (players, coaches, and family members) will be housed at the Arizona Grand Resort, and courts will be constructed at the Resort to accommodate games. Two courts will be indoors in the 20,000 square foot Canyon Ballroom; two courts will be placed under a 20,000 sq. ft. outdoor pavilion with bleachers and lighting.

(Select sessions may use one offsite venue in addition to these courts). This is a very limited opportunity. If each club brings an average of 3 teams (U14 + U15 + U17, for example) there is only enough space for 16 clubs

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
• Four (4) game guarantee per session (32 game guarantee if all 8 sessions are attended)
• All games streamed live (and archived) for fans and college coaches
• Standings, stats, and leaderboards posted for each session (and also cumulatively for teams competing in multiple sessions)
• $129 rate at the Arizona Grand Resort
• Resort fee is waived (typically $50 per room, per night)
• Complimentary 1,100 sq. ft. one bedroom villa on Friday and Saturday nights, for each organization
• Free admission to the Oasis Water Park
• Rate will be honored Thursday through Monday for families wanting to vacation
• Cost as low as $56.25 per game
