Katz JCC hosts 11th Annual Sussman Memorial Basketball Tournament

The community is welcome and encouraged to participate in a weekend of hoops and fun for all ages at the Katz JCC’s 11th Annual Eric and Andy Sussman Memorial 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament on Saturday, Apr. 9 and Sunday, Apr. 10. Funds raised throughout the weekend are dedicated to the memory of late JCC members, brothers and basketball lovers Eric and Andy Sussman, both of whom loved playing ball at the JCC.

This year’s tournament will be for kids in elementary school through high school. A tournament for adults, which has been included in the tournament in years past, will be held this summer.

The weekend begins on Saturday, Apr. 9 at 5:30 p.m. with a high school tournament and party, and includes contests, prizes, a DJ, snacks, and t-shirts for players.

On Sunday, Apr. 10, the grade school tournament events for grades 1-2 and grades 3-4 kick off at 12 noon, and grades 5-6 and grades 7-8 will continue on at 4 p.m. In addition to friendly competition in the tournaments, participants will enjoy basketball contests, music and snacks.

Proceeds from the weekend benefit the Katz JCC’s youth basketball program and the Coaches vs. Cancer organization for cancer research.
