The Bluegrass Signature Series — part of the Grind Session — will make several stops in Kentucky during the 2024-25 basketball season and bring some of the nation’s best high school age players to the Bluegrass.

Games will be played Dec. 5-9 at Calloway County and Dec. 12-14 at Christian County. Louisville Male will host the Bluegrass Signature Series Jan. 2-4 before the series goes to McCracken County Jan. 9-12.

“We are honored to be a part of the Bluegrass Signature Series. The opportunities it provides our fans, communities and programs are unmatched,” said Kerry Stovall, former head coach at Christian County who won a state championship in 2011 and now the district activities director. “We are excited to see what the future holds as we together bring great basketball across the state of Kentucky.”

Coach Tim Haworth of Male said his school is “super excited” to be part of the Bluegrass Signature Series.

“We pride ourselves on playing the best competition nationwide and this gives us a great opportunity once again,” Haworth said.

Calloway coach Brad Cleaver also thinks the event will be good for his community and players.

“This showcase event will bring together some of the best talent in the country to some of the most passionate basketball communities in Kentucky,” Cleaver said. “I look forward to seeing the growth of this event and the impact that it will have on our schools and our great city.”
