Redding Calif.  Simpson University will be hosting the Redding Breakfast Lions Club’s 23rd annual boys and girls high school All-Star basketball games.

The Redding Breakfast Lyon’s Club began the tournament in 1996 as a way to promote sports and activity for youth in the community.

More than 50 athletes from throughout northern California will participate in the event.

This year 28 boys and 30 girls are playing, and they are divided into 2 teams each North and South.

Area high school athletic directors and coaches nominate players for the All-Star teams. A Lions Club committee sorts through the nominations and works with the volunteer coaches to form the teams.

The teams will be guided by four volunteer coaches from north state schools. The teams will be coached by Josh Hamilton from Trinity High School, Kurt Wilkens from Corning High School, Mark Stephans from University Preparatory School, and Nathan Emerson from Central Valley High School.

The girls will play at 4 p.m. and the boys will play at 6 p.m.

During half-time of each game there will be a 3-point shootout among parents of the team members.

Proceeds from the food sales will go to the Special Olympics of Northern California.
