The St. Helens Volcano Classic is a competetive youth basketball tournament open to boys and girls grades 4th through 8th.  Games are played in St. Helens and Scappoose Oregon.  Each age group has an "A" and "B" division. 

The tournament draws over 60 teams from NW Oregon and SW Washington and offers a wholesome, competitive, and well-organized tournament.  Association referees are used at all levels.  Championship games for the older teams are played on the main court at St. Helens High School with music and announcers.
