Age Determining Date

Current grade for 2020-2021 (September 15, 2020 age determining date) school year will be used to determine the grade for participation.  Athletes should check with their school’s athletic director concerning participation. Iowa Games cannot be held accountable for determining an athlete’s eligibility.

Team Discount

A $25/team discount is available for basketball organizations (clubs, leagues, schools) that enter 4 or more teams. Email to receive a special coupon code to use during online registration.


1st and 2nd place teams in each gender/age division will receive medals for each player.


Due to COVID-19, there will be no concessions. You are allowed to bring in cooler or other food items. However, please be sure to pick up your trash and team area. 

Each division will initially be capped at 4 teams to limit the number of teams and spectators (division sizes may be adjusted based on entries).

7th & 8th Grade will offer a recreation and competitive division.  The intent is to give teams the opportunity to compete against teams of similar skill levels across the state:

Recreation Division (7th & 8th Grade): This division is for park & rec teams, YW/YMCA teams, etc., not for the all-star or select teams.

Competitive Division (7th & 8th Grade):  This division is for the all-star, select or elite teams.

*Iowa Games staff reserves the right to combine divisions (competitive & recreation) if there are not enough teams in each level.


Schedules & Results will be available through the Iowa Games app on your smartphone.

A copy of the schedule will be posted here when available.
