Football season is drawing to a close, which means that basketball season is in full swing! Over Valentine’s Day weekend, February 13–14, you have the chance to participate in the PHX3on3 Tournament sponsored by the Ak-Chin Indian Community. The event, held on the streets of Downtown Phoenix, is for players of all experience levels, genders, and ages.
The PHX3on3 has become an outdoor sporting event that basketball enthusiasts look forward to every year. This year’s tournament registration fees will benefit Special Olympics Arizona and the American Cancer Society. Teams of at least three players (with up to four) will take to the courts for bragging rights and friendly competition throughout the weekend in a bracketed tournament where teams will participate with other teams of similar age and height.
Teams will play a minimum of three games throughout the duration of the two-day tournament but could play more depending on their win/loss records.
Team categories are as follows:
- Men’s & Women’s Elite Divisions
- Adult Recreational Divisions
- Youth/Teen Recreational Division
- Wheelchair & Special Olympics Divisions
Every registered person will receive a commemorative PHX3on3 player t-shirt for participating in the tournament. The champion and runner-up teams in each bracket will receive prizes, and the men’s and women’s elite teams will be competing for a cash prize of $2,000. All registered players are entered into a drawing to win two tickets to the February 10 Phoenix Suns game against the Golden State Warriors. Great news, as team registration has been extended to February 5, so register soon!
This tournament isn’t just for the players. Spectators will enjoy live entertainment, choices of good food to divulge in, skill contests, a slam-dunk exhibition and guest appearances by a few recognizable athletes.
