RCS hosts 3-on-3 basketball tournament for elementary students

What kid doesn’t like receiving a trophy? Your third-grade through eighth-grade child has an opportunity to obtain a coveted championship trophy on Friday, Nov. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 21 at Rockford Christian’s first three-on-three basketball tournament. The event is sponsored by the Rockford Christian Athletic Boosters and is open to anyone in metro Grand Rapids and surrounding communities.

Teams will consist of no more than four players who play at the highest grade level of the oldest player. There will be registered referees officiating the

event to keep the games safe and fun. Games will be played at Rockford Christian School, 6060 Belding Road, Rockford.

The cost for each team is $80. A completed team registration form must be received by Nov. 1, 2009. The registration form can be found online at www.grcs.org; select “Schools” and “Rockford Christian Middle School.” Each player will also receive a tournament t-shirt and lots of fun memories. Concessions will be available during the event. The number of games for each grade will be determined by the number of teams that register for the event. Game times will be forwarded one week prior to the event.

This is a great opportunity to get your hoop player ready for winter basketball. If you have any questions, please contact the tournament director, Jon Holesinger at jholes@chartermi.net or (616) 863-9720.
