    THE 37th ANNUAL JANE AND FINCH CLASSIC sunny
    Toronto’s longest and most competitive basketball tournament. Come out and play against the best talent from the GTA at the 37th Annual Jane and Finch Classic – Increase the Peace Basketball Tournament. (ALL GAMES WILL BE PLAYED ON FULL SIZE GYM FLOOR)


    HISTORY & TOURNAMENT SUMMARY

    Historically, this tournament dates back to the 1978, held at Westview C.S. and Humber College during that vibrant 80’s and later solely at Westview C.S. in the 90’s. In the new millennium, the Jane and Finch tournament changed venues from local schools in the community to York University and was clearly the best tournament in the city. Some of the most influential and talented athletes in North America participate in this highly prestigious event - The Finch tournament included talented young athletics such as Chris Webber, Robert 'Tractor' Traylor, Glen ‘Big Dog’ Roberson and others over the years. Basketball fans and players alike look forward to this event held in the grass roots community of west end finch. Now back at the local schools within the community; the Jane and Finch - “Increase the Peace” basketball Classic will surely be an event you do not want to miss this summer.

    WHAT WE WILL ACHIEVE
    The theme for this event will be REAL (Respect, Everyone and Life) and of course have fun!!!
