Mark your calendars and start practicing your jump shot! The Sultan Community Alliance (Alliance) and Sultan Youth Basketball (SYB) are busy organizing the second annual “Sultan Swoosh,” an all-ages 3-on-3 basketball tournament held on First and Main Street near Sultan’s River Park.
This year’s Sultan Swoosh tournament takes place Saturday, July 21, 2018, so save the date! Registration is open now, for those interested in getting ahead of the game. Like last year, four-person teams are organized by grade level from third through eighth grade, and by skill at the high school and adult levels. The $40 entry fee ($10 per player) applies to teams in all age brackets. Sultan Swoosh offers a three-game guarantee to ensure that each team receives the opportunity to participate in multiple games.
During 2017’s inaugural event, a total of 27 four-person teams in nine different age divisions battled it out on five courts. Tournament participants, volunteers and spectators commended the Alliance and SYB for the well-organized, cohesive event.
Sultan Swoosh was established as a way to build community, promote physical activity, and provide families with the opportunity to rediscover the Sultan they know and love. The event was built by volunteers and bolstered by donations from local businesses, with various service-oriented groups coming forward to help.
The goal is to build Sultan Swoosh into a trademark, annual event, welcoming players from all over Sultan, Monroe and the greater Sky Valley region.
