We have been going to Tom's tournament since the beginning and it may be the one tournament that gets better and better every year. It is a great tool for us to have a summer retreat and we take full advantage of it.

The Classic is always a great tournament to kick start our summer. There is a wide variety of teams from the West Coast. Tom puts on a great event!

Truly an awesome event where the talent level allows a coach early, summer insight into his team’s strengths and weaknesses – the tournament is well run and serves as a tremendous barometer to evaluate talent against the best players and coaches.

Tom Lewis annually turns out one of the best summer basketball events with his South Orange County Summer Classic. It brings together outstanding high school programs and terrific players, offering family, fans, media and scouts the chance to get an early line on the best teams and players for the following high school season, with competitive games played in first-class facilities and with the best officials anywhere in high school. It's a 'can't-miss' opportunity for high school programs and basketball fans alike.

The Classic is hands down the best summer tournament in SoCal. Best competition and extremely organized. We have attended it every year since it started and will back again this year!!
