The Kitimat Youth Centre is putting on the Triple Three Sporting event this Saturday, July 17th. The deadline to sign up has been changed to July 14th so there is still time to enter.
It’s a three on three tournament for grades 3-7 and grades 8-12. It’s three on three basketball, three on three street hockey and three on three Ultimate Frisbee and they’ll run simultaneously and hopefully, we’ll get a couple of games going on the Riverlodge Parking Lot and the Riverlodge Soccer Field for the Ultimate Frisbee,” said David Weaver.
The Deadline to enter was Saturday, July 10th but there has been an extent ion until Wednesday to fill up the tournament. Players are asked to bring their own sticks and goalie gear for the street hockey. The games have been redesigned for three player teams.
“Smaller teams are easier to put together, it’s easier to get three people then it is to get ten so we wanted to keep it simple so we could have more kids joining and more teams,” said Weaver.
