A Note to Our Sponsors


Dear Prospective Sponsor:

I am excited to present the 9th Annual Ironton Classic Basketball Invitational in Ironton, Ohio. This exciting basketball shootout will take place December 22nd – 23rd, 2016 in the Conley Center Gymnasium.

The event will feature a total of 12 teams from 3 different states. This year we have regular public schools in addition to Prep schools which should add to the excitement. The participating teams will play “shootout” match-ups on both nights.  

The Ironton Classic Committee respectfully requests your support in order to promote and complete this endeavor. Your tournament sponsorship, combined with additional and future sponsorships, will help us develop and showcase talented student athletes and help them compete for athletic scholarships to some of the top college programs in the country. In addition, a large percentage of the net proceeds will be earmarked for renovation of the Conley Center that was constructed through the support of the Ironton community over 35 years ago.

As a part of your sponsorship, access to our hospitality suite will give your company a unique opportunity to network with other sponsors who will help stimulate your business year. You can reward preferred clients and high achieving employees with tournament passes and give your sales force a great networking opportunity, all while enjoying some of the best high school basketball talent in this region of the United States.
