State Basketball Tournament
The State Basketball Tournament takes place annually the first Saturday in March. There are three separate divisions and tournaments. The Challengers I tournament is for young men in grades 6-9. The Challengers II tournament is for young men in grades 9-12. The Young Adult Men's Ministry (YAMMs) tournament is open to young men, age 18 to 35 years, who are not in high school. The young men must be members of/or associated with a local church.
Sport programs have the strong ability to attract a young man’s attention and excite his interest. The basketball program is not only a tool that involves young Christian men in the mission activity of their local church, but it also can be a tool for enlisting those who are outside the influence of the church as well.
