Pioneer Valley Tip Off

The Pioneer Valley Tip Off, organized by students in the Mark H. McCormack Department of Sport Management at UMass-Amherst, is a high school basketball tournament at the Curry Hicks Cage. One goal of the Pioneer Valley Tip-Off and its participating schools is to help in the fight against cancer by partnering with Coaches vs Cancer, a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The goal of the program is to raise funds for this organization while also promoting cancer awareness to the Western MA community.
