Event Details

The 28th Annual Drew Corson Basketball Tournament will be from January 19th-21st, 2024. This weekend is an opportunity for AZA and BBG members to travel to Louisville to participate in a weekend full of fun!

Teens can look forward to Shabbat Dinner and Services + BBYO tradition and ritual programming on Friday. Saturday will kick off with a speaker before we begin the basketball tournament, and the evening will be capped with an off-site social. Sunday will be full of celebration as we cheer on and watch the championship games, enjoy a delicious brunch and end with an award ceremony.
