Cheesehead Challenge

June 28-30, 2024 - Waukesha County

4th and 5th grade divisions ($250 per team - 4 running clock games) will be held on the evening of June 28 and will be finished on June 29. All other divisions ($325 per team - 4 stopped clock games) will be held June 29 and 30.


For each of the last 10 years, this is believed to be Wisconsin's largest girls' tourney . This tournament has drawn teams from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri. With 4 stopped clock games and athletic trainers provided at all sites for $325 (4 running clock games for $250 for 4th and 5th grade divisions), you simply will not find a better value around.

Typically, more than 30 college coaches from NCAA DII, NCAA DIII, NAIA, and Junior College divisions are in attendance. Typically, half of all games are decided by 10 points or less; 80% of all games are decided by 20 points or less; and only 5% of the games are decided by 35 points or more - this is the place to be if you are looking for your team to be challenged and for the best value for your program!
