Holiday Basketball Classic of the Palm Beaches

The Holiday Basketball Classic of the Palm Beaches presented by Baptist Health is a national basketball tournament that will consist of two championship divisions for both Boys’ and Girls’ High School Basketball teams. The tournament traditionally features 32 teams (16 men’s teams and 16 women’s teams) competing in a single-elimination game format. Although teams are eliminated from a championship bracket after one loss, a consolation bracket will guarantee that all teams play at least three games.

The Holiday Basketball Classic of the Palm Beaches is sanctioned by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), the state association for Florida and a member of the NFHS, will also support this event.

This year’s tournament will take place on December 27-30, 2022.
