It is Goalball Time in Tennessee!
TNABA will host our 3rd annual Benefit Goalball Tournament on January 24 – 25th at the TN School for the Blind in Donelson. This exciting event will start on Friday evening with a placement round starting at 7 pm and the main tournament on Saturday will start at 8 am and run until 3 PM. This tournament is the kickoff to the Goalball season and all proceeds go to provide opportunities for adults and youth teams to travel to regional and national tournaments throughout the year, as well as, purchase equipment for our new Junior (12 and under) and Veterans programs.
