2012-2013 | History | Contact


The PAISAA Basketball championship is contested in February, at the end of the regular season. Begun in 2007, the tournament usually includes teams from the Inter-Ac, the Friends School League, the MAPL, the Tri-County League, as well as some independent schools. The first two rounds are played on campus, with the higher seed serving as the host.

Semi-finals and finals are held at a neutral site, with the boys’ and the girls’ tournament alternating on the same floor. This year’s Final Four will be contested at Penn State Brandywine. The boys’ trophy has been won by ANC (twice), and Friends' Central the last three seasons (2009, 2010, and 2011). The girls’ tournament has been dominated by Notre Dame (2007 and 2008) and Germantown Academy (2009, 2010, and 2011).
We are very excited to announce the 2013 Girls' Basketball State Championship Tournaments for the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA). You are welcome to participate in this year’s tournament regardless of league affiliation or team record; the only requirement is that your school must be a current member of the PAISAA. We anticipate using a sixteen team bracket for the tournament with the following dates. For dates and times of 1st round games, click here:
