Players from eight of the best high school teams from around the country will be competing in the tournament on February 3-5, and they will be playing on a gymnasium surface that matches their athletic excellence Tarkett’s Omnisports vinyl flooring, which was installed by Abacus Sports. 

jamesOmnisports flooring meets the performance and injury-prevention demands of today’s athletes–it is more flexible, produces ideal ball-bounce levels, and has better shock absorption and consistency, resulting in great safety and comfort for the athletes. For athletic directors and facility managers, the Omni Sports requires less annual maintenance (no stripping, waxing, or recoating; protection against scratches, sole marks, and stains), offers consistent playability for other sports in addition to basketball, and provides greater longevity.

Omnisports generates exceptionally low VOC emissions The system is also part of the Asthma & Allergy Friendly® certification program by the AAFA (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America).

“When we went through the process of selecting a new surface for our gymnasium, the Omnisports flooring was the best option for [our criteria],” said Scott Barr, Athletic Director at the St. James School.

All of the games at the St. James Invitational will be played on the innovative Omnisports flooring installed by Abacus Sports. Along with the host school, Saint James, the participating teams are perennial powers SPIRE Institute (Ohio), Southern California Academy (CA), Huntington Prep (WV), National Christian Academy (MD), The Miller School (VA), First Love Christian Academy (PA), and St. Maria Goretti Catholic School (MD).
