Open Division

This division is for the competitive teams looking to test their skills against similar teams. If you think you have what it takes to win it all against any team, this is where you need to be!

Recreational Division

This is for the casual team looking to come out for the event and have a good time. The same rules will apply as the Open Division but taken a little less serious.

The Cause

This event was designed to bring basketball players from around Southern Californa together to have a fun day of basketball and networking. The tournament is benefiting Progression Athletics International which is a 501(c)(3) based in SoCal and uses sports to positively influence the lives of at risk youth.

About the Cause

Sports are a universal language no matter your age, gender or ethnicity. They are a high-impact, low-cost tool that can affect countless lives and inspire change in all who participate.

Today, millions of children around the world have the privilege to play recreational sports. Progression Athletics International was created with a mission to bring those same opportunities to the even greater number of at-risk youth who do not have the same opportunity. Since 2011, we have impacted over 5,700 youth in six countries around the world.

One of the main programs we offer are sports clinics both domestically and internationally. At these events we provide training, T-shirts, sports bags, wristbands, and trophies to those who demonstrate positive behavior. Many of the children PAI serves do not have parents, have been abused or neglected, and are looking for LOVE and PAI provides this through the power of sport.

Athletics has the unique power to attract, mobilize, and inspire. In order for a sport to be a success, multiple participants have to share the same vision and goal. Sports help teach life values such as respect for the opponent, competition, acceptance of binding rules, teamwork, and fairness.

Nelson Mandela said it best: “Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”

This is the platform Progression Athletics International provides to the youth we serve!
