Throughout the year, the 4-H program offers activities and special events outside of the local club environment. Some occur annually, while others are one-time special opportunities.
Annual 4-H Basketball Tournament: The 4-H Basketball Tournament is a daylong event held in March. 4-H clubs may register a team, or individual 4-H members may register and be assigned to a team. Every registered player plays on a team. There are age-specific teams, with an emphasis on sportsmanship and competition. Younger teams are coed. Teams practice together and play in the tournament together. There are five divisions based on grade. This event has been cancelled for the 2020 4-H year.
