2012 YBOA National Championships to Feature Naismith Traveling Exhibit

February 14, 2012

We received a very impressive packet of information recently. It was sent by our good friend Don Ruedlinger, President of Youth Basketball of America (YBOA).

The 2012 YBOA National Championships will be held in Kissimmee, Florida. This event is projected to attract 350 teams and somewhere between 10,000 and 12,000 visitors. What a fantastic achievement! YBOA has done a wonderful job developing their championship…to the point where they need a true destination city in order to house everyone!

As added value they are featuring the Naismith Traveling Exhibit on the history and development of the game of basketball. Don Ruedlinger was honored in 2009 with the Naismith Sportsmanship Award, so it is particularly fitting this outstanding exhibit will be available to all visitors to the event.

Congratulations from all of us at the NASC to Don and his staff (and to our friends in Kissimmee) for assembling such a great championship event!

Mark your calendars for the weeks of July 1-7 and 8-14 in Kissimmee!
