OCEAN CITY BASKETBALL CLASSIC is an Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) tournament for boys and girls in grades 5-12. AAU has recognized the Ocean City Basketball Classic as "one of the best tournaments in the United States". It is also one of the oldest.
The tournament is held every year at Northside Park and Recreation Center in Ocean City Maryland from Friday through Sunday in June.
This year's theme is a dedication to cancer survivors. Teams should wear something showing their support of cancer survivors and/or loved ones that have fought the battle of cancer. (socks, sweatbands, sneakers, and etc.)
This year the Ocean City Basketball Classic
will be implementing the Stay2Play initiative.
All traveling teams participating in the Ocean City Basketball Classic will
be required to use the hotels made available on the hotel information link on this website. This initiative will prove
to be a win-win for teams and family members requiring hotel accommodations and
the organization. The teams and families will benefit by receiving special
negotiated rates and accessible inventory while the event organizers are able
to track and prove the economic impact the event brings to the city.
Hope to see you in Ocean City at the Northside Park and Recreation, 200 125th Street, Ocean City MD.
