NorCal Tip-Off Takes Flight

Rocklin and Whitney high schools have joined forces to kick-off the high school basketball season in an exciting way with the NorCal Tip-Off Tournament. This four-day event takes place Nov. 29 through Dec. 2 and Placer Valley Tourism is thrilled to be teaming up with these two top-notch high schools to bring this inaugural event to Placer Valley.

The tournament will primarily take place at Rocklin and Whitney high schools, where 16 boys varsity teams will be competing and all will have a four-game minimum. Adding an extra element of excitement, the final four games will be played at William Jessup University.

“We are looking forward to the first year for this tournament and excited about the level of competition it will bring to our area,” Rocklin High coach Stephen Taylor said.

“We have teams coming from Reno, Chico, Sacramento, Stockton, Fresno and both Central and Southern California as well as Roseville’s Oakmont High School. Looking ahead, we plan to build this up to the top tournament in Northern California.”

Whitney High School is located at 701 Wildcat Blvd. in Rocklin and Rocklin High School is located at 5301 Victory Lane in Rocklin, so come watch these student-athletes leave it all on the courts. To see who is crowned the NorCal Tip-Off champion, head to William Jessup University on Saturday, Dec. 2.  ϑ
