Registration for 1st Annual St. Martin CYO 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

Parents, I’m pleased to announce the format and rules for our 1st Annual St. Martin CYO 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, which will take place on Saturday, October 14 and Saturday, October 21 at St. Martin Gym and Gold's Gym.  Intramural and travel players are welcome.  This contest is not open to instructional league players.  You must be registered for the 2023-2024 CYO season to participate in this tournament, so please complete the registration process ASAP if you haven't already done so.  

Pat Paredes, our B7-10 Intramural Director and B8 Travel Coach, will run this tournament.  Please let your sons and daughters know about this contest and have them talk to their friends who will be playing at St. Martin CYO this season.  By September 30, please submit your 3-person teams along with a team name to Pat at [email protected].  If you don’t have a 3-person team, but would like to participate, then please let Pat know and he’ll help form a team.  We’d like to have at least 8 teams in each division with two 4-team pools.  If we have more or less teams interested, then we’ll make required adjustments to the plan below.  Please see the attached file for the game schedule.  

Thanks in advance for your support of this exciting new addition to our clinics, contests and events calendar!
