ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) - After being canceled the last two years due to COVID-19, the Josh Palmer Fund Elmira Holiday Classic basketball tournament, which is one of the biggest across the Twin Tiers, is set to return to Elmira in December.

The schedule and brackets have been released for this year's Josh Palmer Fund Clarion Classic. The games will be played from Tuesday, December 27th-Friday, December 30th at Elmira High School and Ernie Davis Academy.

This year's tournament will consist of the Jim Flynn Boys National Division which is an 8-team bracket, and the Morrissey/DeFilippo Girls Division which is also 8 teams. There will also be two regional boys brackets with 4 teams competing in each tournament - the Jack Terwilliger Boys Regional Division 1 and Joel Stephens Boys Regional Division 2, and there is a 4-team girls' regional tournament.
