USA Basketball today announced plans to host an inaugural 2017 USA Basketball 14U National Tournament for boys and girls teams comprised of players who are 14 years old or younger. The tournament, which will be conducted in accordance with USA Basketball’s national guidelines, will take place June 30-July 3 at Jonathan Byrd’s Grand Park Fieldhouse in Westfield, Indiana.

“USA Basketball is very excited to debut this event that we hope will attract teams from across the United States,” said Jim Tooley, USA Basketball CEO/Executive Director. “It is important for us to give young basketball players the chance to play according to USA Basketball guidelines, which will help ensure a fun, competitive environment that is focused on their safety and development.”

Player eligibility will be based on age, not grade. To participate, a player must be 14 years old or younger and cannot turn 15 before Sept. 1, 2017. The tournament will use FIBA international rules and a 30-second shot clock.
