Here comes your chance to show us your A-Game!
The Central Grampians LLEN is bringing an officially endorsed FIBA (International Basketball Federation) 3X3 event to Ararat! The tournament is open for all basketball enthusiasts – male and female – to celebrate National Youth Week 2017.
The FIBA endorsed 3 on 3 Tournament will be hosted at Ararat College on Thursday the 6th of April, 2017 (during the school holidays). The event is a drug and alcohol free event as part of National Youth Week, which is an Australian Government, State, Territory, and Local Government Initiative.
The tournament is open to all youth between the ages of 12-25, with two age categories: Under 15s and Over 15s.
Get Your Team Together!
Each team can have a maximum of four players (three on court at a time with one substitution). The tournament will start with a round of leagues and each team is guaranteed to play a minimum of three games. We also hope to be handing out some exciting prizes and giveaways on the day.
Every player will be required to create their own player profile online on 3x3planet.com and register correctly for their team. Becoming a member of 3x3planet.com also allows all participants to team up and organise pick-up games with other players nearby, register for future tournaments, record results of their games, and receive an official 3X3 world ranking.
Once you have created your online profile, look for ‘National Youth Week Ararat 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament’ under Events (Organiser – Central Grampians LLEN) and register yourselves and your teams. If you find it difficult to register online, we are glad to assist in creating your profiles for you. If you are having trouble with registering online, you can also call Brendan at the CGLLEN offices on 5352 3266. You can also find the registration page at http://www.3x3planet.com/en/event/details/TMZ16LMAYLDVFZZZ
Registrations open on the February 6 and will be taken for a maximum of 12 teams (six Under 15, six Over 15). The absolute last date for registering your team is 5pm on Friday the 31st of March. Registrations cannot be accepted past this time.
If you have any further queries or difficulties regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you solve them. We look forward to seeing you on the courts!
