31st Annual Queen City Classic Basketball Tournament
With much regret, the 2020 Queen City Classic Basketball Tournament, scheduled for March 27-29 in Spearfish, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Please share this unfortunate information with your coaches, players, parents, and fans who were planning to attend.
The decision was made late yesterday when the Spartan Athletic Booster Club learned two of our facilities, which host a total of seven basketball courts, are closed to large group events until the beginning of April. In addition, the Spearfish School District, under guidance from South Dakota’s Governor Kristi Noem, has cancelled classes the week of March 16-20, with the possibility for extended closures remaining uncertain at this time.
As the QCC Tournament Director, I am saddened to be sending this information out to 174 registered teams, from five states, who were looking forward to traveling to Spearfish to compete in the 31st annual Queen City Classic. We understand this event brings a lot of players and spectators from various towns for a great weekend of basketball. However, the health, safety, and well-being of everyone involved is our number one priority. The cancellation is a great disappointment, but we didn’t have any other option.
Plans are underway for the 2021 tournament, tentatively set for March 26-28, 2021. As always, registrations will open on January 2, 2021. Remember to register early, as we reach max capacity every year. Registration forms and tournament information will be available at spearfishboosterclub.com.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience as we navigate through this unprecedented global health concern.
Thank you for your continued interest, participation, and support of the Queen City Classic!
