Metro USA Sports: Metro Invitational Tournament
YOU will be part of the largest basketball tournament in all the land!
The Metro Invitational Tournament Classic (MIT) is the proving-ground for all Metro Teams. The best teams in the Metro-Pittsburgh area play here! And, only the best of the best will survive.
Keeping the tournament competitive, for all teams, is our greatest challenge. To achieve this goal, we've created two divisional tournaments...Division I and Division II.
As coaches and parents, your involvement, support, and participation is appreciated. Our communities will thrive and benefit from your positive actions. Here, at Metro USA Sports, we thank all who have served their communities, and who have exemplified an outstanding competitive spirit. To all that enter the MIT's....Good Luck!
ALL proceeds, from the MIT's, will benefit the non-profit tournament hosts. ALL tournament team entrance fees are paid by Metro USA Sports.
