Started by a couple of UMass students in 2011, the Pioneer Valley Tip-Off remains completely student run. Each year, over 50 students work tirelessly throughout the school year to make this event possible. Each year we are proud to host some of the top high school basketball teams in Western and Central Mass. In addition we will offer a new and improved prep school division which will boast talent from all over New England including Massachusetts, Vermont and Connecticut. The PVTO strives to offer the highest level of high school basketball, alongside a professional game day experience for all fans in attendance.
