Youths are encouraged to play in a free basketball tournament beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East St. in Woodland.
In collaboration with the YGRIP (Youth Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention Program) and the Woodland Police Department, the city of Woodland is hosting the second annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament.
Players age 11 and older can pre-register their own team of two to three youths and one to two adults by Friday, Sept. 19, to secure a spot. Many of the adult players are volunteers from multiple law enforcement agencies, so youth players also can register on their own to be placed on a team.
One adult and two youths are on the court at all times and teams substitute players during games. The event guarantees each team at minimum of three 10-minute games. In addition, there will be free food, music and raffle prizes.
To register or for more information, call the Woodland Community Services Department at 530-661-2000 or visit www.cityofwoodland.org/3on3.
