The Annual DomHeart21 Classic is more than a game. Each year hundreds of student athletes come together ‘Ballin’ to Protect Young Hearts’. Started in 2011, the competition brings attention to SCA, the #1 killer among student athletes in the United States. The basketball program is designed to promote CPR/AED and SCA education, awareness and sports safety. All participants in the program from the referees, coaches, players, volunteer staff to the spectators are trained in CPR/AED life saving skills. The Foundation donates an AED to the championship teams to carry with them at all sports practices, games, travel and events.
