ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT

The Holiday Classic is an opportunity for Sun Youth basketball players to make their mark by competing against the best teams from Quebec, Canada, the United States (including legendary teams like the Riverside Church Hawks (NYC) and Vermont Academy) and abroad (the U19 Chinese National Team).

Over the last 40 years, the tournament has become a premier event for showcasing young Canadian talent, creating buzz and attracting several recruiters and coaches from the NCAA and USports. Some of our past tournament alumni include Andrew Wiggins, Bruce Brown and Samuel Delambert. Sun Youth’s own Eze Dike-Nwagbara has just graduated from Yale University; Nathan Grant is now HeadCoach of Laval University Men’s team, and Maurice Joseph was the head coach of George Washington University’s team.

SPONSORS and donors

Thanks to the financial support of our donors and sponsors, we are able to fund the participation of athletes from underprivileged backgrounds in our programs and to make sports accessible to as many people as possible. Organizing a basketball tournament incurs significant costs, especially for a community organization like ours. Your sponsorship can make a huge difference in the lives of young people.
