May 3, 2017 Some have asked why the Adaptive Basketball Classic (ABC Classic)? To answer this question I am going to give two brief descriptions to answer that question. First and I believe the most important of the to is to allow Unified PE students an opportunity to play in a Unified Basketball tournament. As the tournament director, my goal is to make this as much like a state tournament level event for these Adaptive/Unified PE students as possible. We want them to feel like this is a big tournament and that each game is a big deal.
The second reason is to give the students in my sports and entertainment marketing class a chance to not only serve these Adaptive or Unified students, but also to learn the marketing skills talked about in class. We want to grow the tournament and do so using the marketing principles that we cover each class period. I feel that this is more real life than doing book work or some meaningless project. It is real life, actually applying the techniques and strategies learned.
If you feel like being a part of the Sports And Entertainment Marketing class, or would like to donate to this great cause, please feel free to contact me for additional details. 801-400-5932 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Adaptive or Unified Basketball classic is an Annual event that the Sports and Entertainment Marketing Class at American Fork High School Hosts. the Adaptive P.E. Students (students with disabilities) from American Fork, Lehi, West Lake, Orem, and ATEC have all had teams the past 3 years.
The Unified tournament teams are made up of students with disabilities from each of the teams listed above. They play in a single elimination Basketball tournament. Each team is guaranteed 2 games. The top two teams will receive a traveling trophy that can be displayed at their individual school.
There is also a spirit award for the team that brings the most fans. American fork High School has won that award the two years it has been awarded (They do have the advantage of being the host school).
