Grand Rapids Public Schools Athletics is hosting the East vs. West Battle of I-96 Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament on December 22 and 29, 2012.

Men's teams from the Detroit area will take on West Michigan teams Rockford, Muskegon, Creston, Union, and Ottawa Hills on the 22nd. The women's event on December 29th will feature Creston, Union, Ottawa Hills, Clio, Lee, and Bay City Central. Halftime entertainment is planned for many of the games.

Following a successful Turkey Trot fundraiser, the GRPS athletics department is hoping to raise another $50,000 during the Holiday Classic to continue offering K-12 sports programming without a pay to play fee.

Admission is $10 for the men's tournament and $7 for the women's tournament. Children ages 5 and under are free. A two-day ticket package can be purchased in advance for $15. Advance ticket purchases may be made during all GRPS home basketball games and at the high school athletic offices. Tickets go on sale on Monday, December 17, 2012.
