Spring 2016 at the University of Maryland, College Park

The National Hillel Basketball Tournament was founded in 2011 by University of Maryland students. The tournament’s purpose is to bring together Jewish athletes from across the country for a weekend full of camaraderie and basketball. The tournament has hosted teams from over 30 universities across the country and is the first social gathering of its kind to bring together Jewish college students. Most importantly, the tournament brings together university students to positively embrace our common heritage and communal link in a social, celebratory nature.

The National Hillel Basketball Tournament will take place at the University of Maryland.

Planning for NHBT ’16 is underway and this year’s tournament will be bigger than ever before! The tournament weekend includes an exciting and social Shabbat experience followed by 2 separate girls’ and guys’ competitive basketball tournaments. Games will begin after Shabbat on Saturday night and continue until the championship games on Sunday evening. The tournament board will provide weekend accommodations for players who wish to stay with UMD student hosts. Otherwise, players may organize their own accommodations or stay in a hotel nearby. The tournament provides all meals from Friday night dinner through Sunday lunch. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you might have and we look forward to welcoming you to our campus in the Spring!
