Dear Potential Participants,

TanenbaumCHAT is pleased to announce the relaunch of our International Israel Becker Memorial Basketball Tournament. The Tournament is our commitment to the Jewish Community in North America, and is a tribute to the memory of Israel Becker.  Israel was a CHAT graduate who played CHAT Varsity basketball and inspired many years of CHAT Alumni and Basketball tournaments.

The tournament will be held from Sunday, January 20th through Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019.  We are very excited for the return of a competitive tournament to our school and look forward to welcoming schools from across the continent to play, build community and enjoy our time together.  

The tournament will be for Varsity boys and Varsity girls.  All teams are guaranteed a minimum of 5 games.

Orientation will begin at TanenbaumCHAT Sunday, January 20th at 2:00 PM and the closing ceremonies will end on Wednesday, January 23rd no later than 2:00 pm.

Registration will be capped at 6 Girls and 6 Boys teams. Registration is on a first come first served basis and priority will be given to schools who will be sending a boys and a girls team.

1. The cost per participant (athlete, coaches, and advisors etc.) is $250. Our tournament includes all meals, trophies, and swag.
