General Information

History: In December, 1993, Sporting Chance created and hosted the very first competitive youth basketball tournament in Tucson. Since then, the annual Tucson Holiday Tip-Off has become a Southern Arizona tradition, as many youth club teams use it to “tip-off” their club season.

General Facts: The Tucson Holiday Tip-Off is held every year, one or two weekends before Christmas. Games begin Friday evening and conclude Sunday early evening. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of 4 games, We typically attract 40-60 teams. The Tucson Holiday Tip-Off typically hosts Boys teams 9u through 14u (3rd – 8th grade) and Girls teams 12u and 14u (6th & 8th grade).  We typcially start marketing and open registration 6-8 weeks before the tournament.

Due to limited facility space and an efficient two-day format which guarantees all teams at least 4 games, this tournament sells-out every year. Make sure you are on our mailing list so you do not miss your chance to register.

We hope you will add the annual Sporting Chance Tucson Holiday Tip-Off to your tournament schedule.
