St. Mary's gymnasium will be bustling with activity on Saturday December 13th as they will be hosting their annual 3 on 3 basketball "ICEBREAKER" Tournament for both girls and boys grades 2nd-8th.
Boys and girls in grades 4-8 will shoot from standard 10 ft. hoop. Boys and girls in 2-3rd grades will shoot on an 8 ft. hoop. We want to give the younger participants the opportunity to succeed and get excited about the game of basketball; it's their time to get some play time. Tournament organizers added that referees during the tournament will be a little lenient on the 2-4th graders. The referees will let minor fouls and traveling (an extra step or two) go without penalty or turnover. We want them to understand the concepts of play and the feel of competition.
Medals will be awarded to the winning teams. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of three games. Cost for the tournament is $40 per team.
