10th ANNUAL - LANSING COMMUNITY ROUNDBALL CLASSIC
Hosted by the Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce
The Lansing Roundball Classic is a fund-raising basketball tournament featuring 5th grade boys teams from Lansing schools. Event will be held on February 21st - 26th, 2019. This year we will have the District 158 schools (Oak Glen, Coolidge and Reavis) along with Heritage Middle School, Lansing Christian and St. Ann all competing for the coveted team trophy. During halftime sessions of every game there is a Hot Shot contest where the 5th grade girls from the respective schools will also compete.
A spirit contest is held - the school showing the most school spirit and best sportsmanship gets their school name engraved on the "Ray Shrader Plaque" (former Memorial coach and principal).
In addition there is a yearly food drive contest held among the schools during the week leading up to the tournament. Collected food is taken to Memorial Junior High were it is donated to the Lansing Food Pantry. This allows the athletes and other students to gain the valuable experience of helping those who are truly in need.
Donations are greatly appreciated and ALL proceeds from this tournament are donated to various Lansing charities. We invite you to come out to the games and experience the fun!
DONATIONS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ACCEPTED. Please mail all donations to: Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce, ATTN: Lansing Roundball Classic, 18155 Roy Street, Suite 3, Lansing IL 60438
