See Action in Branson’s NAIA Basketball Tournament
Calling all the sports fans out there! If you love to see intense sports action, then head on to Branson to get some. Choose among the main sports like basketball, baseball, and volleyball – whichever tickles your fancy. Branson is not only the entertainment capital of the Midwest, but it is also a venue for sports enthusiasts.
The most popular of the collegiate sports in Branson is basketball, especially the NAIA Basketball. NAIA Basketball occurs in the months of September to March. These months are also considered the off season, but this sports event in Branson still manages to draw large crowds. There is also a basketball tournament for both men’s and women’s during the fall season. This tournament is the Midlands Collegiate Athletics Conference, or MCAC. Off season in Branson is never really the off season since a lot of tourists still visit because of the exciting sport events happening here.
The week-long NAIA basketball tournament happens during the month of March in the College of the Ozarks. This event is big enough to draw a huge crowd to Branson – teams, officials, volunteers, coaches, media men, and of course, the basketball fans! Over 33 colleges and universities come together in Branson for this big sporting event. The NAIA basketball tournament is for 6 days and it also features intense but healthy competition among the teams. Because of the immense popularity of the teams and the sport, some of the businesses in Branson already sponsor some teams. This tournament is the epitome of healthy and adrenaline pumping college athletics.
Watch out for this college sporting event this coming March! Because of the intense fans and the more growing popularity of the sport and the event, the month of March also proves to be a busy one for Branson. This is the time when all the restaurants are full, the shopping malls are jam-packed, and the hotels are all fully booked. If you plan to go to Branson for this event, then don’t get stuck in looking for a hotel room. All you have to do is go to Thousand Hills Hotel and Golf Resort, located in Highway 76 in Missouri.
Thousand Hills offers you not the usual hotel rooms. Instead, it gives you the options of having nightly rentals for log cabins, golf front condos, or lake front condos. When you are traveling to Branson in large groups, opting to have these nightly rentals would make you save some bucks since these lodging options can accommodate more people in one unit. Imagine not having to rent multiple hotel rooms for your vacation!
Come to Branson for the NAIA basketball tournament and make Thousand Hills Golf Resort your home away from home. For more inquiries about the lodging options, contact 1-877-262-0430.
