Unfortunately, due to COVID, we are unable to host our annual Holiday Tip-Off basketball tournament in 2020. As painful as this is for us — the Tip-Off is the longest running tournament in Arizona and has run continuously for 28 years — we need to consider the health and safety of our employees and customers. But hang in there, we will be back!


The Sporting Chance Center and Profile TV have teamed up to offer LIVE STREAMING and VIDEO ON DEMAND of all the action at the Center! And best of all, you can watch it ALL FREE on your mobile phone, tablet, laptop or smart TV, captured by one of the five high-definition, digital cameras installed at the Center.

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 in December, 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 hosts many divisions based on age guidelines. The divisions include Boys teams 9U through 14U, and Girls teams 12U through 14U.  Registration opens up annually, typically September-October.

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. Click here to be added to 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.
