Welcome to the National Masters Championships for 2019. This will be the 35th year of the tournament in South Florida and the 11th operated by the Masters Basketball Association.
Just follow the steps outlined for a smooth Team Entry. As the Team Organizer, you are responsible for knowing the information that is contained in the MBA web site tab TEAM ORGANIZER HANDBOOK. Please pay particular attention to our Uniform Requirements, which are more stringent than other tournaments. The return of your Uniform Deposit depends on meeting these requirements.
We cannot overstress the importance of a strong bench for having success in this tournament. If you make of the finals, you will be playing five games in five days!
After receipt of your entry, a staff member will contact you to advise if your entry is complete or if more information is required. Once your entry is finalized, you will be notified of your entry number in the age division selected. NO ENTRY IS COMPLETE UNTIL THE ENTRY FEE AND UNIFORM DEPOSIT HAS BEEN RECEIVED. THIS YEAR BOTH THE ENTRY FEE AND UNIFORM DEPOSIT WILL HAVE TO PAID ON LINE.
If you are entry #5 in your division, there are special requirements that we will discuss with you prior to finalizing your entry.
If you are entry #7 in your division, your entry will be pending until such time that an 8th entry is received. We do not have any seven-team divisions. We advise not booking any air travel until you are notified that an 8th team has entered in the division.
JERSEYS – Each team must have a light and dark jersey for each player with regulation basketball numbers FRONT and BACK A reversible jersey is acceptable. All jerseys must be of the same color and style.
SHORTS – Each team must wear shorts of the SAME COLOR and STYLE. For example, if you select red shorts with a white stripe, all players must have red shorts with a white stripe. Solid color shorts are recommended as the easiest to manage. Many teams are now coming with very nice uniforms with team and player names. However, this is not required.
For teams meeting the standard, the Uniform Deposit will be returned after the tournament.
