Milwaukee Recreation will host the 22nd annual Milwaukee Public Schools Special Olympics Basketball Classic Tournament from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, January 27 at Vincent High School, 7501 N. Granville Road.
Forty-six teams from Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Washington counties will compete in this event. This is the first tournament of the Special Olympics basketball season and Milwaukee’s largest Special Olympics tournament of the year. Admission is free and open to the public.
“These games will allow athletes to qualify for the Special Olympics District Tournament in March,” says MPS Assistant Recreation Supervisor Jodie Theis. “We’re ready for another great season.”
