For many of us, athletics has been an extremely important part of our lives as Lithuanian-Canadians. We know the pride of putting on our team's jersey and the adrenaline rush of coming up against a rival during countless ŠALFASS/LAUNA tournaments. As Lithuanians, perhaps no sport is more popular than basketball. Below are the details of the 3-on-3 basketball tournament that will be taking place during Lithuanian Heritage Day.
This is a one day 3-on-3 plus a substitute pickup game. Teams are to be determined by the organizing committee and will be based on age, gender, and experience. 15 minute running time or first to score 15 points. 1 point awarded for each basket. 2 points awarded for field goals outside of the three-point line. Minimum of 3 games for all teams.
The 3-on-3 basketball tournament will take place on Saturday, July 29, 8:00AM-11:00AM at the Raven's Nest gymnasium on the Carleton University campus.
