The First annual “Championship of the World” 3 on 3 Tournament


Great Falls Rotary Presents The First annual “Championship of the World” 3 on 3 Tournament
 
October 25, 2014 - Great Falls Elementary School, Great Falls VA


 
GF Hoops and Great Falls Rotary would like to welcome you to the First Annual Great Falls  “Championship of the World” charity 3 on 3 basketball tournament, being held at Great Falls Elementary on October 25, 2014.
 
This will be the first of what we hope will be an annual chance for our community to raise money for a deserving cause. This year’s recipient is the Langley Pyramid  Stop Hunger Now, a terrific international charity that is working to end world hunger. It’s also a great chance to warm up for the upcoming GF Hoops season which begins in November!
 
The tournament will be broken up into four 12 team divisions, and it will be double elimination, so everyone is guaranteed to play at least 2 games. Games will have both referees and scorekeepers.  Both boys and girls teams are encouraged to register, but please understand that the divisions are not segregated by gender. The Divisions are grouped by grade, so in Division 1,  a 7th 8th and 9th grader could play  on the same team.  The Open Division is for anyone above the age of 16,  ie. Dads, college kids, and high school kids above the age of 16 can all play together on the same team.
 
Team Divisions:

  • Division 1: Grades 4/5/6
  • Division 2: Grades 7/8/9
  • Division 3: Grades 10/11/12
  • Division 4: Open Division (must be 16 or older to play in this division)

We encourage the whole family to come out as we anticipate a fun filled day with games, refreshments and other fun filled activities for whole family to participate in! The cost per team is $100 ($33 per player!) and the link to register is www.gf3on3.com and you can like and discuss us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/gf3on3
 
As this is Great Fall’s first 3 on 3 tournament in a while, we want you to know that we have already had quite a bit of interest. As space is limited, I recommend you register now for the chance to raise the tournament trophy and lay claim to bragging rights as “Champion of the World” for an entire year!
 
If you have any questions please email gf3on3@gmail.com
 
Come on out, and let the trash talking begin!

Boys 4th Grade Developmental Program

The Great Falls Select Basketball program begins in the 5th grade - until the 5th grade, players participate in House League. However, last year we ran a pilot program for 4th grade boys who wanted a higher level of training and competition, and the program was very successful. This year we will be offering the program again.

Who is eligible? Boys in the 4th grade who would be eligible to participate in the 5th Grade Great Falls Select Program next year.  Like the Select Program, the Developmental program is for players (and parents) willing to make a higher level of commitment than House League requires.

What is the program's objective? The primary objective of the program is to act as a "bridge" between House League and Select basketball. Players in the 5th grade Select program will be competing against players and teams from across the County who have been playing at a high level of competition since 3rd grade, so our local players typically have some catching up to do.  

How does the program work? Players in the Developmental program sign up for and participate in Great Falls Basketball 4th Grade House League as their primary basketball commitment for the 2014-2015 season. However, as members of the Developmental Program, they would participate in one additional practice per week, and would have the opportunity to participate in games and tournaments in the VA/DC/MD area. In the case of schedule conflicts between House League and the Developmental Program, players will be required to attend the House League event. However, over the course of the season, every player will have had the opportunity to build their skills and test them against stronger players and teams.

Is there a tryout? Maybe. We will be scheduling Open Gyms in September as a means of gauging interest and demand. If more players want to participate than we can put on one team, we may have to have a tryout in order to Select the most capable players.

Who do I contact for more information? The Boys 4th Grade Developmental Program will be coached by Bruce Carton. Contact Bruce at bcarton@securitiesdocket.com.
