Basketball ACT together with the Winnunga Warriors will be hosting the “NAIDOC 3×3 Challenge” on the 7th of October, 2017. This tournament would be an ideal way to dust the cobwebs off a week before the start of the Summer Season.
3×3 basketball is rated as the fastest growing urban sport and has recently been recognised as an Olympic sport by the International Olympic Committee to be featured in the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. Thus, we at Basketball ACT are keen on introducing and promoting this version of basketball to the people of Canberra.
The details of the NAIDOC 3×3 Challenge are as follows –
Date: 07/10/2017 (Saturday)
Venue: Belconnen Basketball Stadium Outdoor Courts
Age Groups: U14, U16, U19
Category: Boys and Girls
Registration Fees: U14 – $60
U16 – $70
U19 – $80
Time: 9am onwards (Reporting time is between 8:30am and 8:45am)
This tournament will be a FIBA-endorsed event which means that every participant will receive official FIBA World Ranking Points which count towards qualifying for other FIBA 3×3 tournaments.
We will be sending out tournament flyers and details around the online registration process in the following week but in the meanwhile, it would be great if you could please pass this information on to your players and start putting them into teams (with a maximum of 4 players in each team).
Spectator entry to this event is free for all so come on over with your families and make a day out of it – we have barbecue and music on the day!
If you have any queries regarding the tournament and the online registration process, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from all of you!
