2016 Christmas Classic

Top Teams Square off on Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th

A special holiday basketball tournament will take place in Vancouver, Washington December 10th and 11th.  Local venues will host the top club and school boys/girls teams from around the Pacific Northwest at the 2016 Christmas Classic. These 10U-14U teams will go head-to-head all weekend long for the right to be named Champion on Sunday.

The 2016 Christmas Classic brings teams together from Portland, Vancouver and Seattle-Tacoma for hoops and more. “Our hope is that the Christmas Classic is a way to bring people together who wouldn’t normally get to play each other,” said DeLano Morgan. “Vancouver is an amazing community and it has embraced this event supporting local non-profits with strong support from community partners. We feel fortunate to have community leaders, business partners, and friends support our initiative to bring families and communities together.”

A special guest speaker will be joining us at 10am to address the teams and fans in attendance. The weekend should prove to be a great basketball weekend while enjoying the best of SW Washington. Christmas Classic is proud to benefit Evergreen School District, Seton Catholic Boosters and the Share House with a portion of the proceeds.
