METRO CLASSIC HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL SHOWCASE

Since 2013, the Metro Classic Basketball Showcase has brought together the highest profile national and regional High School basketball teams to compete and provide a framework to give back to our communities.

The Metro Classic is designed to utilize basketball as an agent for community involvement. We seek to foster values such as responsibility, respect, leadership, integrity, competition and service to others. Over the years, the Metro Classic sponsors and teams have touched the life of so many by donating funds and their time to outstanding community service organizations such as Warfighter Sports, Interfaith Hospitality Network of Ocean County, Union County Interscholastic Athletic Conference Collegiate Scholarship Fund, and the Neonatal Unit of the Children’s Hospital of New Jersey, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and the NJ Police Surgeons.

The three-day event, televised in previous yeas on MSG Varsity and NJ 12, is held annually at Kean University’s 2500-seat Harwood Arena, in Union, NJ and has sold out since its inception. Participants have included National and Local powers: Montverde Academy, Roselle Catholic, Oak Hill, St. Benedict's Prep, Christ the King (NY), St. Anthony’s, St. Thomas More (CT), St. Joseph's Metuchen, Long Island Lutheran, First Love Academy, Linden, The Patrick School, Lincoln (NY), Newark Eastside, Our Savior New American, Pope John, Gill St. Bernards, Hudson Catholic, Hunterdon Central, Union Catholic, and Rumson Fairhaven, among others.
