Thanks for being a part of the excitement!


Two days featuring an action packed, family friendly basketball games and entertainment.  A portion of all general admission tickets benefit Maui non-profits.


Bigger than basketball, all proceeds benefited local Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) from participating Maui elementary schools, basketballMAUI athletic programs and other Maui non-profit clubs. In addition, the Maui Classic athletes visited elementary schools across the island to emphasize the importance of both academics and athletics.  It is the goal of basketballMAUI to bring an event to our island designed specifically for our local community.
