Wow, hard to believe that it’s been 3 months to the day since I’ve written my last blog. Well, here I am again 🙂 …
I wanted to come to everyone with some pretty exciting news! That is if you haven’t heard about it already. As a part of the ‘2nd Annual Stylish Gents Blacktop Reunion’, the JC Barnett School of Jump Shooting is hosting a FREE youth 3 on 3 basketball tournament. This is going to be such a great time!!!
Here are the details about the tournament itself. It will consist of grades 3-5 and 6-8. The rules and regulations will be much like any 3 on 3 tournament the kids have ever played in before. Game will be played to 15 by 1s and 2s, win by 2. Max 20 points to win the game if needed, also on a time limit of 25 minutes. Each team gets 1 time out per game. Change of possession causes for the rebounder to take the ball completely (Ball, body and feet) behind the 3pt line (or 2pt line). All other minor details of the “Rules and Regs” will be covered by the coach and the official briefly before the games starts.
Also, did I mention FREE jump shooting instruction and clinic, yes!!! I would really love to see every potential student and parent who has reached out to me about my basketball program there. Here is the opportunity to go home with a little bit of something to work with on your jump shot.
Too, I will be presenting Brandon Wood, a distinguished basketball player from Kokomo, Indiana and who does much in the community; with an honorary ‘JC Barnett School of Jump Shooting’ Bachelors degree certificate for his accomplishments in the game of hoops.
The ‘Blacktop Reunion’ starts at 1p, the games will begin right at about that time as well. The competitive atmosphere is what I will be most proud of!! Teams will or may be co-ed, some younger some older, some bigger some smaller. There will be tournament winners that will receive hardware to take home with them. But, every single kid that comes out and competes at a high level and gives it their all, will be a winner in my book.
For anyone interested in coming and being a part of this youth 3 on 3, players. coaches. parents. Of course, there will be smack talk, a little friendly banter. Let’s remember who it’s about and enjoy watching these kids compete without so much as one bit of any “serious” drama. Thank you!!
