THE TAYLOR TIP-OFF is a fundraising tournament. The objective is to raise money for the Taylor Memorial Fund, a fund established to support children who lose their parents to domestic violence in Maine.

Maine’s top middle and high school boy and girl basketball players will compete on the court in exciting pre-season games. But the real challenge will be how much money each team can raise for young victims of domestic violence across Maine.

CHAMPIONS! The champions of this tournament will not necessarily be the best basketball players with the most points scored, the best jump shot, or the toughest defense. The champions of the Taylor Tip-Off will be the team that raises the most money for the Taylor Memorial Fund.

PRIZES! The team raising the most money will win limited edition, premium quality Taylor Tip-Off 2017 “championship” sweatshirts. These special sweatshirts will only be available to the winning team and top fundraisers. In addition, the top three runner-up fundraising teams will win tournament t-shirts.

DONATIONS: In place of a standard entry fee, each team will be asked to raise money to donate to the Taylor Memorial Fund. While any amount will be accepted, we challenge each team to raise at least $200 from friends, family, and businesses in their own towns, and encourage teams to raise as much as they can.

Each team will play at least two games at one of our locations in Gorham, Falmouth, Gray New Gloucester, Waterville, or Hampden. Once again, this event is possible because of the Maine Athletic Club. Please contact Mark Leclerc (see contact info left) to register your team.
