Divisions

Divisions of Play:

Following pool play, all teams will advance to either Championship (Gold) or Consolation (Silver) single elimination bracket play. The goal is to reach Championship Sunday!

  • Mens Premier : $650 Entry Fee ($450 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    The pinnacle of Asian Basketball in North America. This is where the best of the best compete. Hawaii Chosen Few has proven themselves to be the best team in the country in back to back years, with tough challenges from teams like the SoCal Icemen, Cali Davis Dynasty, and the LA Sleeping Pandas. This could be the year that one of the East Coast teams makes a run.

  • Mens Select : $650 Entry Fee ($450 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    Just a notch below the Premier, but some very good ball is played here. This division is for very good Asian teams. The Hawaii Menehunes and LA Everest have been impressive Champions, overcoming stiff competition from reputable teams like Team Texas, Philadelphia Fastball, the Eastbay Cardinals, and Toronto United.

  • Mens Open/Open-Rec : $650 Entry Fee ($450 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    The largest division, open to any Asian men’s team. From rising teams to veteran squads, from weekend warriors to couch potatoes. This is the division for everyone. Some teams are here to win it all, while others are just playing to get some exercise and spend a vacation weekend with friends in Florida. Winning teams have included LA Everest and the NY USAB Warriors. You never know who might be lacing up this year, but participants in this division have included Washington CYC, Tampa Bay Superstars, Fullerton Menehunes, LA ABC, SF Drakes, and the NJ Knights. If there are enough older squads to make it work, we will also include a 35/over division.

  • Womens Premier : $650 Entry Fee ($450 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    If you register here, you better come to play. The Orange County Panthers have been pretty dominant, losing only one game in the past few years en route to chip after chip. They have gotten some good runs against Team Texas, Washington CYC, NY USAB, and SF Hella Hangry. The talent level here was been very good.

  • Womens Open/Open-Rec : $650 Entry Fee ($450 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    The Philadelphia Fastbelles captured the chip in 2015, while it was LA Aiya Vintage who cut down the nets in 2016. In this less competitive division, count on teams such as LA FOR and the Toronto Dragons to take part. Perfect for older teams, not as skilled as the top tier squads, or more inexperienced teams that want to experience a National level event.

  • Youth 17 & Under : $600 Entry Fee ($450 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    The ABCNA will also crown champions in the 11/Under, 14/Under, and 17/under divisions, as these youngsters will no doubt prove to be the future of Asian basketball. We are anticipating great competition, as prior teams have included Phoenix, LA, Fresno, and SF. This year, ballers from NY, NJ, DC, and Toronto should be entering the arena!

  • Youth 14 & Under : $600 Entry Fee ($400 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    The ABCNA will also crown champions in the 11/Under, 14/Under, and 17/under divisions, as these youngsters will no doubt prove to be the future of Asian basketball. We are anticipating great competition, as prior teams have included Phoenix, LA, Fresno, and SF. This year, ballers from NY, NJ, DC, and Toronto should be entering the arena!

  • Pee-Wee 11 & Under : $600 Entry Fee ($400 if Stay and Save Applies) + $100 Team Deposit

    The ABCNA will also crown champions in the 11/Under, 14/Under, and 17/under divisions, as these youngsters will no doubt prove to be the future of Asian basketball. We are anticipating great competition, as prior teams have included Phoenix, LA, Fresno, and SF. This year, ballers from NY, NJ, DC, and Toronto should be entering the arena!
