The Dolphin Classic

The 4-on-4 Dolphin Basketball Classic originated in the summer of 1986, over the past years becoming one of the premier outdoor basketball tournaments on the west coast. Originally the tournament was organized to cater to only Richmond’s top high school players but as the years went on the tournament took a life of it’s own and quickly became a true North American hoop-fest. The Dolphin Classic now enters its 31st year and to accommodate its ever growing popularity, it's hosted at a bigger venue, the South Arm Community Centre. As Dolphin continues to expand we must not forget the roots of the tournament and what it truly represents: family, friends and basketball.
