Clemson’s Recreational Therapy Club, in cooperation with the Clemson Adaptive Sport and Recreation Lab and Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital, proudly host an annual junior wheelchair basketball tournament, called the Clemson Classic.

This is an annual event in upstate South Carolina that welcomes youth of ages 5 to 18 to compete in this two-day regional tournament of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA). The tournament features top junior wheelchair basketball teams from around the southeast.

In 2019, the Clemson Classic welcomed a total of 9 teams, crowning a champion in both the Prep and Varsity divisions. The tournament gives participating athletes an opportunity to learn new skills, develop both individually and as a team, and play in a competitive environment.

In 2020, the Clemson Classic is tentatively scheduled to be held on October 3-4, 2020 at the Upward Star Center in Spartanburg, SC. For teams interested in more information, or to register a team to compete or become a sponsor, please contact Dr. Jasmine Townsend.
