Sioux Falls Family YMCA celebrates the 85th anniversary of the Boys’ Tri-State Basketball Tournament.
In 1930 A.S. Andy Anderson started the first tri-state tournament with 16 teams from Des Moines, Aberdeen, Plankinton, and Sioux Falls playing in the Friendly Indian, Pioneer and Comrades divisions. There were 112 boys and young men playing in the 1 day tournament in one gym.
Today, the tournament has teams playing in gyms throughout Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. The games are played in less than 24 hours with the boys and young men participating in a tradition that has grown to the biggest and best basketball tournament in the world based upon Athletic Sportsmanship and Christian Fellowship.
The details of the tournament are included in the second page of the entry form. This includes cost, game times, special rules, etc.
