We are looking for 2 teams to fill our Sophomore Holiday Tournament this year. It is an 8-team tournament, with each team guaranteed 3 games, that will be played on 12/21, and 12/22. Once our field is set we will finalize the schedule and times.

 Oswego East High School Girls

Oswego East Girls Basketball is looking for 2-6 teams to join us in our Holiday Classic Tournament on 12/27-12/30.

You are guaranteed 4 games (1 game each day).  We have been a 16 team tournament for 17  years and hope to continue that tradition.
If we only have 12 teams, we will turn it into pool play, and you are still guaranteed four games.  Please email the head coach Abe Carretto or 
Tony Millard (AD) for more information.  The tournament has one 3A team, but the rest are 4A teams, but we will welcome any class team into the tournament.

Rock Island High School is in need of 2 more teams for our annual Thanksgiving Tournament on November 26th and 27th. Teams attending the tournament will receive overnight lodging on Friday night and a 3 game guarantee. If you are interested please contact Marc Polite at

Dubuque Hempstead (IA) Boys

Dubuque Hempstead, Iowa (enrollment 1600) is seeking an opponent to play in the Wendy’s/American Trust Classic at Loras College on Saturday, January 15th, 2022.  We would also like to play a sophomore game at Hempstead prior to the varsity contest at Loras.  Game times will be determined once the shootout schedule is finalized.

If this date does not work, we are also looking to fill another non-conference date during the 2021-2022 season (sophomore-varsity doubleheader).  We have many open Saturdays and would be willing to discuss a date that works for both of us.

Wethersfield (Kewanee) Boys
The Wethersfield (Kewanee) Boys Basketball Tournament (Wally Keller) is hosting Charlotte (Punta Gorda, Fl) for 2 shoot-out games within the Wally Keller Boys Basketball Tourney.  Charlotte has a school of about 1900 and will be good competition for a 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A school.  The games will be Friday, November 26th and Saturday the 27th, 2021.  Most schools are in a Thanksgiving Tourney, so we can move schedules around for a 1 game opportunity. 
This unique opportunity is made possible due to Coach Wally Kelller spending from 1966 to 1980 and then moving to the Punta Gorda area of Florida and having a great impact on the Charlotte area as he did at Wethersfield.  Charlotte has its own Wally Keller Classic in Florida as well.  Questions and contact info is AD, Jeff Parsons, and contact number is Jeff Parsons-309-221-5204.

Rockford Boylan Girls Christmas Tournament 2021
The Rockford Boylan Girls Christmas Basketball Tournament is looking to fill a couple of spots for our 2021 Reindeer Games.  The tournament will be played on Tuesday, December 28 and Thursday, December 30, 2021. Each team will play two games per day for a total of 4 games.  This format will greatly reduce travel times for some teams during the holiday season.
Our unique pool format will help ensure equality whether  your team is rebuilding or has a veteran squad returning.  The  tournament is open to all 1A-4A schools.   To see our UNIQUE pool format or for more information contact Paul Heitkamp, AD, or varsity coach Paul Perrone, [815-222-4349].
