This Saturday and Sunday from 9am until noon the 1st Annual LIC Hoops Basketball Tournament for kids and adults will take place at the Gantry Plaza State Park courts on 48th Avenue. The adults bracket on Saturday is completely sold out, but there are slots left for the kids tournament on Sunday. It is free and open to boys and girls, but parents must pre-register their children and submit signed waivers.
Now, while the odds that your child will ever make it to the NBA Finals are beyond minuscule, there’s a 50/50 chance that he/she will forever be remembered as the winners of the first ever LIC Hoops Basketball tournament, and thus their grandkids grandkids’ will know the names of these legends. Plus they’ll have a trophy to prove it.1 Need I say more? Sign-up info and details in the link below.
