Saturday, December 2nd, and Sunday, December 3rd

The Elk River Classic Basketball Tournament is our organization's main fundraiser.  The proceeds go directly toward improving the program and expanding access to the game for kids in our community.  Volunteering at this event is a fun way to meet families participating in our program.  All games at this year's tournament will be at three venues in Elk River: Salk Middle School, VandenBerge Middle School, and Elk River High School.  Children 16 years of age and older may fulfill your family's requirement.  Children age 8-15 years old may help as volunteers, but must do so in the presence of a parent.  


All families* in the Travel League (except Head Coaches) are required to volunteer six (6) hours during the Elk River Classic Tournament to avoid the travel volunteer check deposit.

* All ERBYB Travel League and House League Scholarship families are required to volunteer twelve (12) hours during the Elk River Classic Tournament.  If you receive a Scholarship, the ERBYB Volunteer Coordinator will assign your Volunteer shifts during the Elk River Classic Tournament.  You will not have the option of choosing your volunteer shifts.

Volunteer opportunities will be made available in November.  Email Kyle Torfin (ERBYB Vounteer Coordinator) at for more information.
