Hastings Basketball: Spiral Classic Tournament

Boys Spiral Tournament



Hello coaches/directors/parents!

We are very excited to host the Hastings Spiral Classic Tournament. Links to the brackets for the tournament are below. Just a few reminders for your players:

  • Please, no running or dribbling balls in the hallways
  • We ask that your players to stay off courts during time outs and halftime of games
  • Please keep children from underneath the bleachers. This is a MAJOR safety issue
  • Games can start as early as 20 minutes ahead of schedule.  Please have your team ready in advance
  • Be sure to enjoy our full concession areas at the High School and Middle School

Have Fun!
