SF Youth Basketball
Annual Spring-Ford Basketball Tournament
73 Teams of Exciting Action!
The Annual Spring-Ford President's Day Tournament was held over the holiday weekend and saw more than 70 teams competing at different levels. The Spring-Ford School district gyms were filled with players and fans, some traveling a few hours to participate. The games were exciting and intense, with some going into many overtime periods. The weather was on the cold side but the games were "heated" as there was great basketball being played.
Thanks to all our volunteers, especially Roland Olsen, the Tournament Director, who spent many hours in varying responsibilities to make the tournament a success. Also, thanks to all the teams for participating and we hope to see you next year.
Below are some pictures captured from the tournament.
