The Coal Bowl Classic is a national invitational male/female high school basketball tournament, which is held at Breton Education Centre in New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada. A major facilitating factor is that all team members are housed within one wing of the school. Breton Education Centre is a combined junior-senior high school which opened in 1970.

The tournament, first held in 1982, takes its name from the primary industry of New Waterford, coal mining, although all coal mines on Cape Breton are now closed.
