The GBA will be hosting two events in 2018 benefitting
The Pat Summitt Foundation, a grant making foundation which was established by former Tennessee Lady Vols head basketball coach Pat Summitt shortly after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. The first event kicking off is the Tennessee Legend Classic, April 13-15 at Rocky Top Sports World in Gatlinburg, TN and the second Tennessee Legend Classic -Ohio Regional, May 25-27 at Capital University in Columbus, OH.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give back to a true pioneer and legend in women’s basketball. What we have been able to achieve in women’s basketball today is possible in large part because of what Coach Summitt did for the game of basketball,” owner/director Jeff Ferguson said.
This 2018, Ohio Hoops Basketball will be hosting two tournaments benefitting The V Foundation in the Spring 2018!! The first event kicking off is the Ohio Jimmy V Classic, April 6-8 at Research Park Courts in Dayton, OH and the second Gatlinburg Jimmy V Classic, June 30-July 1 at Rocky Top Sports World in Gatlinburg, TN. These two events will be open to boys and girls teams in grades 4 thru 11. The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jimmy Valvano with one goal in mind: to achieve victory over cancer!
“This is another tremendous opportunity to give back to a great cause and support the V Foundation. With what we have done for The Cure Starts Now Foundation through the GBA Lauren Hill Classic our staff feels we can mirror the same success with the Ohio and Gatlinburg Jimmy V Classic’s,” owner/director Jeff Ferguson said.
This site is designed to help coaches, parents, and players find the information they need for all Girls Basketball Association (GBA) events for the 2018 season. This site is your quick link to all things GBA. On it you will find tournament schedules, rules, directions, and hotel information for all of our tournaments. We have a great staff, including current and former college women’s basketball players, high school coaches, and former high school players and fans. In 2017, we had over 100 teams playing 12 weekends in a row! We had one weekend with over 300 teams playing, five weekends with over 240 teams playing, and nine of those weekends we had over 170 teams playing in tournaments in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. We also will continue providing college exposure opportunities byway of our College Exposure Tournaments and Individual Showcases. We are the largest “girls only” tournament association in the Midwest! Last year was the best year for the GBA and 2018 will be even better.
See you on the Court!
