We are launching our brand new 3 on 3 Intermediate event called the Slam City Cup. We are currently requesting schools that are interested in competing in this flagship inaugural 3 on 3 initiatives that will include schools over Auckland and Counties Manukau. This programme will be of no cost and will involve qualified ABSL coaches to come in and help prepare teams and staff for the year 7-8 Tournament in November. We will also provide a brand new Spalding basketball for each team member to keep and practice with in lead up to the tournament. ABSL will also provide a visit from a NZ Tall Black or NZ Tall Fern to present the trophy to the winning team at school assembly.
The Slam City Cup Tournament will be a 3 on 3 event that will require 2 teams of 4 students to participate in (one team for each gender) from your school. It will be a full day during the weekend of Basketball with teams competing against each other for the chance to become the first annual Slam City Champion. The tournament will be facilitated by ABSL staff and coaches and will be full of fun activities, Music and prizes. The event will be on the 16th of November.
Spaces for teams will be limited for the event and we want to have the competition consist of schools from all over Auckland so getting your expression of interest is essential for us to lock in teams for the event. it is a first in first served system and will have to cut off teams once we hit capacity.
If you are a school contact or a coach that is interested in locking down a school team please contact our ABSL Development Manager Tania Hunter via email Tania@absl.co.nz.
All Players / Parents interested entering a team please go through the school and pass on Tanias details.
