Be apart of the 27th CRC tournament celebrating the LGBT basketball community. The Coady Roundball Classic held its first National Gay Championships in the city of Chicago in 1991, (FKA Windy City Hoops Championships) by Sam Coady. Sam organized the event until he handed it over to Ted Cappas. Ted was apart of forming the National Gay Basketball Association and help to grow LGBT Basketball, and make the name change from Windy City Hoops Classic to The Coady Roundball Classic to celebrate the work of Sam Coady. Steve Waldron took over the Coady and continued to see growth in the number of teams participating. In 2015 the Coady Roundball Classic held the 25th tournament and handed over the event to the NGBA. Las Vegas was the first city to host the CRC outside of Chicago and in 2017 we hope to see you in Philadelphia.
All level of players are welcome to participate. The tournament will end up with 7 division, from Open A to Novice D. There will also be a Free Agent team available.
NGBA tournaments are Stay to Play. This means all players not living in the host city must stay in the host hotel to play in the tournament.
