Since 1989 BEST in the WEST tournaments have offered the finest local and regional high school basketball competition.  In that time we have grown from a local high school summer event into a group that now organize dozens of high school (and soon AAU and travel ball for all ages) seasonal showcases and summer tournaments.  We offer quality events for both boys and girls and do so for all levels (Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity).

Our events offer top quality competition based out of the greater Los Angeles and Orange County area.  Our unique quality of organization from the administration to the game management is unmatched by any other of this size.  BEST in the WEST tournaments are organized to provide players and coaches with the best opportunity to improve their game.
