The Ellicottville Central School Athletic Department is proud to announce the partnership with Holiday Valley to sponsor the first annual “Holiday Valley” Tip-Off Basketball Tournament this Dec. 10, 11 and 12.  This event will be held in the new gymnasium and will feature both the boys and girls varsity basketball teams.

We are excited and proud that Holiday Valley has stepped up again in our community and is our sponsor,  along with support of the Ellicottville Sports Boosters.  The three day tournament will award the top two teams and select an all-tournament team.  Two of our neighboring schools accepted the invitation to play —the Cattaraugus Little Valley Timberwolves and Allegany Limestone Gators.  Our girls and boys will host the Clymer Pirates on Thursday, Dec. 10, girls 6 p.m., boys to follow, to kick of the tournament. The boys of Allegany-Limestone will play Chautauqua Lake, and opening Friday will be the Girls of Cattaraugus Little Valley playing the Frewsburg Bears.  Saturday 11 a.m. starts the girls consolation game with girls championships slated for 3 p.m. and boys at 4:30 p.m.

All games have an admission charge of $1 students and $2 adults.

Holiday Valley continues its support of the Ellicottville School Community and we are grateful for this opportunity to host a “Holiday” tournament in our new facility.

Thanks to the Ellicottville Sports Booster also for the support in organizing and running the tournament and concessions.
