In partnership with Canada Basketball, Naismith Basketball Association is proud to host its 27th Annual tournament, and first ever NAISMITH 3X3 CANADA QUEST QUALIFIER on August 10th & 11th, 2019, in beautiful Almonte (Ottawa), Ontario.
This beloved community event began in 1992 and has grown steadily in its 20+ years and features many fun basketball themed activities and contests throughout the day. Over the last five years alone, the tournament has attracted more than 300 players per year from Lanark County, Ottawa area, and from as far away as Toronto!
Our Youth and Adult divisions will run as usual on Saturday - both on Bridge Street, and in the Community Centre parking lot.
We are thrilled this year to partner with Canada Basketball to be an official 3X3 Canada Quest Regional Qualifier for Elite division athletes. 3X3 is growing in popularity, and will be a demonstration sport in the 2020 Olympics. The winner of the Elite division in our tournament will be sent by Canada Basketball to the National final in Montreal in September! The Elite division will play inside of the Almonte Arena on Sport Courts, with round-robin action on Saturday, and play-offs on Sunday (spectators welcome)!
MORE DETAILS WILL BE COMING SOON - INCLUDING LINK TO REGISTRATION PLATFORM.
Want to get involved? We are always looking for volunteers to help out with this event...and this year is no different. If you are interested in helping with set-up/tear-down, traffic control, event registration, being a court monitor for our Novice and Atom divisions, photography/videography/social media, we'd be glad to find a spot for you!
