MWA Basketball Mission
Midwest Athletics was founded in 2006 with one goal, “Provide the best run youth basketball events in the country”. Midwest prides itself on running professional well organized events that are designed with the players, parents, and coaches in mind.
By bringing professional management and an operational focus to a historically disorganized marketplace, Midwest Athletics has quickly become the most reliable and preferred AAU tournament provider in Michigan.
