Holiday Basketball

November 24-27 (2016)

Message from the HKIS Athletic Director

HKIS celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this year and our Holiday Tournament has been going strong for 47 of those!! We are excited to host teams from Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand as well as our home grown talent for this year’s competition. We would like to welcome players and their families as we head into the holiday season and hope that you will have a chance to get out and about in our beautiful city.

We would like to thank our administration and community for their support of this event. A special thanks to the Booster Club for their support of spirit items and hospitality for coaches and players. Another huge thank you goes to our homestay families who open their homes to visiting players over the holiday weekend. It is heartwarming to hear the excitement of visiting players describing some of the feasts that they have been part of year after year. We truly appreciate our families rolling out the red carpet for our overseas players.

Play hard, play fair continues to be our motto for these tournaments. I am always reminded what good sportsmanship our teams possess at these tournaments and look forward to seeing competitive games that end with a handshake. All the best to players and coaches over the next few days!!
