Come and see Youth Basketball at its best in Gilford during the 22nd Annual Francoeur/Babcock Memorial Basketball Tournament taking place at the Gilford Middle School from Thursday, March 5th to Sunday, March 8th, 2015. This invitational tournament is held in memory of Aaron T. Francoeur who was a thirteen year old Gilford Middle/High School student when he succumbed to cancer in the summer of 1993. Nathan Babcock’s Name was added in 2006 after he lost his battle with cancer in the fall of 2005. Since Aaron’s death, the Aaron T. Francoeur Memorial Scholarship Fund, in conjunction with the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation, was established to give financial aid to deserving Gilford High School graduates who are furthering their post high school education. Many former players and scholarship recipients return each year to help at the tournament, be it officiating, scoring, timing, selling tickets and t-shirts, or working at the concession stand.
The tournament this year will consist of the following divisions and teams:
Junior (Coed) Division (Grades 3 and 4) - Gilford, Gilmanton, Lou Athanas and Sanbornton
Girls Division (Grades 5 and 6) -
