With the Coronavirus becoming a real threat to us in the Chicagoland area, we are canceling the Jimmy Griffin Basketball Skills Clinic and Tournament that was scheduled to be held at Marist on Saturday, March 21. With professional and college sports being suspended and the Archdiocese of Chicago suspending classes and activities until March 30.....it's a no brainer.
First and foremost is the health and well being of all of our participants; I would never want to endanger anyone's health by persisting in hosting the event. Additionally, my Jimmy's events throughout the past ten years have been nothing but stellar, and I want to keep it as such.
Please know that we plan to resume his rich legacy on his Southside next year with the Clinic and Tournament.
Look for details in 2021. 😀 Thank you.

Jimmy Griffin Legacy Foundation
We, the Jimmy Griffin Legacy Foundation, plan to host an annual 3 on Three Basketball Tournament, Skills Clinic and Benefit to honor the memory of Jimmy Griffin, whose passion was family, basketball, friends and the southside of Chicago.
We also promise to keep Jimmy’s memory alive by trying to be more like him: full of character, fun, integrity, and determination. We promise to make each day a masterpiece . . . just like Jimmy Griffin did throughout his life.
It is a great way to honor a wonderful young man whose passion was basketball and friends and the southside of Chicago.
