League Legends Midsummer Classic
The League Legends Midsummer Classic is the organization's signature event and also our biggest fundraiser. The event is a 5 on 5 basketball tournament held on the outdoor courts at Ryan Rd Elementary School in late July. Many local Northampton High School alumni participate to relive their glory days playing in The League.
The games are played under adjusted rules to keep the spirit of the rough and tough pick up basketball style many of us have become accustomed to. All ages and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to participate. The talent pool includes men and women ranging in ages from 14 to 50 years old. For some players it's the only time they step out on a court all year and for others it's a change of scenery from their normal division 1 college or professional basketball routines.
The wide variety in participants presents for some very entertaining basketball. After a round robin preliminary round the teams are seeded and move on to a single elimination playoff to declare a champion.
Come Join Us!
The LLMC has become a great spectator event for families! While watching great basketball we provide delicious food at our concessions stand donated by Scotti's and Pepsi.
Also for your entertainment we have bounce houses and lawn games set up as well as a playground right next to the courts for the kids and young at heart adults. During the playoffs we hold crowd participation games like our 1 on 1 challenge and Hot Dog Eating Contest to win great prizes!
