Local 3-on-3 basketball tourney set to take over downtown June 1 and 2

“It’s a fundraiser for KidSport and we’ve actually donated quite a bit of money. We’re in the process of donating last year’s funds,” Garvey says. “It’s a complete charity event. None of the organizers get paid to do this.”

With more than 300 participants who play in the tournament, the event also draws thousands into the downtown core as supporters and spectators.

“About 6,000 people, I think, rolled through the street over the two days,” Garvey says. “Our peak, I think someone measured us at around 3,200 or something like that. Hopefully, it’s really good for the restaurants and stores.”

With three weeks left to register for the event, Garvey says they are looking for teams across all open divisions. However, he’s hopeful more female teams and athletes decide to participate.

“We’re always solid with the boys. We always need more girls. More girls playing, more girls divisions. If we can really load up on the girl’s divisions this year, I think it’ll be a really successful tournament.”
