Sooke’s 3-on3- basketball tournament is now accepting teams

Deadline for August 9 basketball competition is August 2

  • Jul. 16, 2014 10:00 a.m.

Do your feet have wings? Or maybe they would like to try to fly. Go ahead, if you have two or more friends who share your secret dream, go ahead and set them (that would be your feet) free.

For the 14th year in a row, Sooke’s 3-on-3 basketball tournament will be held. The games will be played at Journey middle school on August 9.

As the name suggests, teams consist of three players. Or more.

To register, contact Trevor Bligh by email at theblighs@gmail.com. Under-17 teams will pay $20 per team; over-17 teams will pay $10 per player.  The cut-off date for registration is August 2, one week prior the event.

The event is all ages, male or female, and is being coordinated by the Sooke Youth Council.

The tournament began 14 years ago by Sooke youth and has since been organized and run by them as well.
