Forget watching March Madness. How about getting off the couch and throwing some hoops yourself?
Friends of the Southborough Youth Commission are sponsoring March Madness in the Boros, a championship-style 3-on-3 tournament to take place at Algonquin on Saturday, March 5. Proceeds will benefit Southborough Youth and Family Services.
There will be tournaments for kids in various age ranges, as well as a teacher vs. parent tournament. Here’s the schedule:
11:00 am -1:00 pm: Grades 5 and 6 (one division)
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm: Teachers vs. Parents
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm: Grades 7 and 8 (one division)
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm: High school
Teams may consist of three to five players. There are boys, girls, and co-ed divisions in each age group. Aside from basketball, the event will feature music, prizes, and concessions, so it will be fun for the whole family.
Registration is $20 per player with prizes awarded to the winning teams. The registration deadline is February 20. Players who sign up by January 20 will get a free t-shirt.
Register online at www.northeastelitebasketball.com or mail in a registration form. You need to sign up as a team.
