Mission & Goals

The Chesapeake Panther basketball programs, from the Buddy League, Middle School and High School Levels has long enjoyed a tradition of success and excellence. We believe in hard work, discipline, commitment, academic excellence and teamwork. We believe that our young people are essential to the long term success of our community as a whole.


The purpose of this all day event is multi-faceted. First, we want to provide a $1,000.00 scholarship for every senior boy’s basketball player who elects to attend college. Each year, the proceeds of this invitational will help fund that goal. Secondly, the proceeds of the invitational will provide funding for improvements to our basketball facilities and locker rooms. Thirdly, we want to provide a day of great high school basketball that people from all over the Tri-state will enjoy and look forward to each and every year. Finally and most importantly, we want to display and promote the excellence of the Chesapeake community; our businesses, sponsors, students, teachers, administrators, coaches and volunteers.



Because the community has been so generous and supportive of our efforts, we were able to expand our scholarship program in 2013.  In addition to providing a $1000 scholarship for every senior boys basketball player that elects to attend college, we now award a $500 scholarship to a graduating boy and girl outside the basketball program based on academic excellence.  Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, those that buy raffle tickets, and the fans that attend our event, we have awarded $36,000 in scholarships over the last 9 years.  THANK YOU!
