Lakers 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament

I'm coming out of my little blogging hiatus to give everyone a Los Angeles Lakers public service announcement. :)

The 2009 World Champion Los Angeles Lakers will play host to the first-ever Lakers 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament presented by Nike and Fan Fest, Friday, Aug. 14- Sunday, Aug. 16 at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles.

There are four main divisions of play: Standard, Nike Elite, Special Olympics and Wheelchair. The Standard division includes three categories of participants: adult, high school (oldest player's next grade will be 9-12) and youth (oldest player's next grade will be 3-8). The Nike Elite Division also consists of three categories of players: Women, Men's 6 Foot and Under, and Men's Over 6 Foot. Players will then choose between Recreational and Competitive levels of competition at which time brackets will be formed based upon these criteria and those delineated above. Special Olympics and Wheelchair divisions are open to athletes of all ages and abilities, and are free of charge.

Participants can register their teams online at www.Lakers3on3.com or mail in the registration forms to the designated address on the Web site. Registration closes on Friday, July 31.
