USA Basketball Youth Development 14U National Tournament Begins June 30

  • Date:
    Jun 29, 2017

• Boys Schedule | Rosters
• Girls Schedule | Rosters

The inaugural 2017 USA Basketball 14U National Tournament will feature team from 15 states competing June 30–July 3 at Jonathan Byrd’s Fieldhouse at Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana. The tournament will be conducted in accordance with USA Basketball’s youth guidelines and will use modified FIBA international rules, including a 30-second shot clock.

The USA Basketball 14U National Tournament is a USA Basketball Youth Development initiative. The focus of the national tournament is to promote the growth of basketball through core values of fun, safety and development. Every coach in the tournament is a USA Basketball licensed coach.

The tournament is open to the public, and the cost to attend is $5 per day. Children under 6 are free.

The girls and boys division I championship games will be streamed live at usab.com/live on July 3 at 11:40 a.m. (all times listed are EDT) and 1:15 p.m., respectively.

“This tournament is a great way for USA Basketball to highlight recommended youth guidelines and to give participants the opportunity to play in a fun, safe and developmentally appropriate environment,” said Jay Demings, USA Basketball youth development director. “Abiding by a limit of two games per day and implementing FIBA rules is valuable for the players and coaches. We are excited to launch this inaugural youth development event.”

To participate, athletes must be 14 years old or younger and cannot turn 15 before Sept. 1, 2017.

In the boys tournament, four pools will play a round-robin preliminary round schedule. The top two finishing teams from each group will advance to the division 1 playoffs, with the winners advancing to the semifinals. The championship game will be streamed live online at usab.com/live at 1:15 p.m. on July 3. 

The third- and fourth- placed teams after preliminary round play will advance to the division II playoffs.

The boys schedule and rosters are available online.

The girls schedule will see three preliminary round groups play a round-robin format. The top two teams from each pool will advance to the division I quarterfinals. The semifinal winners will compete in the championship game, which will be streamed live online at usab.com/live, at 11:40 a.m. on July 3.

The third-, fourth- and fifth-placed teams from each group will play in the division II playoffs.

The girls schedule and rosters are available online.

Participating teams receive tournament t-shirts and water bottles for players, collared shirts for coaches and one clipboard per team.

The tournament also features a USA Basketball Experience for players that includes a skills clinic directed by Don Showalter, who is the USA Basketball coach development director and an eight-time winner of the USA Basketball Developmental Coach of the Year award.

Coaches will have the chance to participate in a social event. The USA Basketball Experience also will include a USA Basketball memorabilia display that showcases current and past USA Basketball men’s and women’s national teams.
