Germantown Community Basketball Tournament
The Germantown Community Basketball Tournament has been taking place annually since its inception in 1989. The tournament, now in its 30th year, has always been focused on benefiting the Germantown community.
The tournament brings together high school students from diverse backgrounds. The selection of participants provides an opportunity for exciting out-of-league match-ups between squads whose schedules would never otherwise intersect.

This year, with the 30th anniversary of the tournament, we also celebrate the 50th summer of the GFS Community Basketball Enrichment camp. Proceeds from the Tournament benefit the Community Basketball and Enrichment Camp.
Started in 1971 by former GFS principal David Felsen, the summer program, formerly known as the Germantown Basketball, Reading, & Computer Clinic, provides a low-cost opportunity for children from the Germantown community to develop their skills not only on the court but in the classroom as well.
