It is time to get ready for Spring!

As we have done for almost two decades, we will be hosting and partnering with some of the top GIRLS basketball events in this part of the country.

1- LIGHTNING CHALLENGE I- APRIL 7-9. 4 games played at several sites throughout Nassau and Suffolk. $485 for four games. This event has sold out for 11 consecutive years (which is the reason why we are posting the registration links so early). Please do not hesitate or you could be closed out.

2- LIGHTNING YOUTH CHALLENGE – MAY 19-21 – This is a great weekend of girls basketball when we partner with Coaches Choice Elite and Central Jersey Hawks to host great tournaments on both Long Island (4th through 8th Grade) and in New Jersey for high school teams.

3- CENTRAL JERSEY HAWKS LIGHTNING SHOWCASE-May 19-21. This is the high school divisions for the Lightning, Coaches Choice and CJ Hawks event. These games are for high school teams. High school teams should use the following link:

We look forward to having your team joining us for these events. We have a proven track record of success in attracting college coaches and hosting the most organized events. We also offer such attractive extras as posting results, a very active social media presence, great facilities, officials who are employed and rated by us on a year-round basis and onsite supervision at all locations by tournament directors.

For further information, please email Jon Lawniczak is one of the most knowledgeable, successful coaches and tournament directors in girls basketball for the past decade. Communicate directly with him in order to insure that your team has the best possible experience.
