Nike Tournament of Champions



Nike’s flagship girls basketball events – the Tournament of Champions and Nike Nationals – return to Chicago on July 19, 20, 21, and 22, 2024.

The Tournament of Champions will celebrate its 26th Anniversary by producing an event which promises to be unlike any that summer basketball has ever seen.


All participating teams will be guaranteed six (6) games.


All coaches must have a USA Basketball Coach License prior to the event. Individuals without valid licenses will not be permitted to engage in coaching activities or sit on the team bench, and must purchase a spectator pass and sit in the designated spectator area(s).


All athletes and coaches must be registered in the NCAA BBCS. Returning users should renew their previous account and not create a new one. For team events, coaches will use their players’ registration to create their bench/roster. Returning coach and athlete users should RENEW their previous account and NOT create a new one.
