On December 2-3, 2017, Boston University will be hosting a regional basketball championship tournament for the 18th consecutive year. As opposed to past years however, this tournament is NOT part of the NIRSA National Championship Series. However, the tournament will be run much the same way and the winning men’s and women’s teams will receive paid entry into the 2018 NIRSA National Championship tournament taking place April 20-22 at Ohio State University.
Registration for the women’s tournament has filled. There are very limited spots remaining in the men’s tournament.
Click here to access our registration page, and then click the green “Get Started” button near the bottom to create your login.
Once logged in, select “Intramural Registration” from the “Adult Programs” drop down menu. At the bottom of that page you will find registration links for the Men’s and Women’s Divisions.
The first 8 men’s and 8 women’s teams to register will receive entry. Once registration fills, teams should contact Tournament Director Jeff Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the wait list.
Staff/Student Official Applications:
Applications are currently open. Please click here to apply. Applications for visiting staff will be accepted until October 10. After October 10, student officials applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
Although this is not a NIRSA sponsored tournament, our tournament’s eligibility guidelines will mirror that of the NIRSA championship series.
