In 1994, the Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation (SASF) held its first basketball tournament fundraiser. SASF took this opportunity to introduce itself, and its purpose, to the community. Intro from the Inaugural “SASF New Year Classic” Basketball Tournament Program [PDF]
The invitation for others to join “The Quest” for a community gym was well received, and SASF quickly grew with the support of numerous Sacramento-area organizations. In 2007, SASF achieved its goal and opened the doors to a community facility.
In 2001, the Sacramento Warlords began to host a basketball tournament in its own name, in addition to helping at the SASF New Year Classic. Today, both tournaments continue to benefit the Sacramento Asian American community and enjoy the competition of teams throughout California.
