The tradition of the UCC Prep Under 12 Invitational Basketball Tournament predates my twenty-seven years at the Prep School. It started out as a small tournament involving just a couple of schools from the Toronto area and a couple of schools from Montreal. It has grown to include sixteen teams, each year including teams from all over Ontario and Quebec, from the independent School System as well as the local Toronto Public School Board. It is a wonderful opportunity for students from out of town to visit Toronto, billet with a Toronto family and enjoy fun and competitive basketball for all. It is our hope that everyone has the opportunity to meet new people, learn a little about the game of basketball and to challenge themselves to do their best in the spirit of fair competition.
