The Southern California Basketball Hall of Fame
The Southern California Basketball Hall of Fame (SCBBHOF) was founded in June of 2019 to recognize the great players, coaches and administrators that have made the local sport what it is today on the high school, college, and professional levels and to be able to raise charity funds for the future of youth basketball. The HOF primarily recognizes the accomplishments of individuals playing/coaching/ contributing on the Southern California high school level, and then participating in college basketball in the local area ranging from San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. Playing college basketball outside the local area and achieving state or national honors and playing/coaching in the NBA or professional basketball would be a factor in the final HOF considerations.
The important mission for the 501c3 non-profit charity is to raise the necessary funds to provide educational, training, clinics, and sport opportunities for disadvantaged younger male and female players to enjoy the game, plus develop their fundamental skills like the legends being recognized in the HOF. The SCBBHOF will assist youth athletes and future Olympic hopefuls where their families may not have the necessary resources to prepare for major competitions.
The charity efforts will be enhanced through the Southern California Basketball Hall of Fame honorees fundraising ceremony to recognize the accomplishments of these local individuals, who played significant roles within youth, club, high school, college, and the professional basketball community.
