Subject: FIRST NORTHERN COLORADO ADULT BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS TOURNAMENT COMING TO GREELEY THIS MONTH
Greeley will be hosting the first Northern Colorado Adult Basketball Championships Tournament, sponsored by the University of Colorado Health Orthopedics on March 15 & 16. This event will be held at the Greeley Recreation Center at 651 10th Avenue, in historic downtown Greeley.
The idea to host the basketball tournament came from Steven Frederick, the Culture, Parks, and Recreation Department’s Adult Sports Coordinator. Frederick was behind the creation of the Adult Softball All-Star Games last summer, since that saw such great success he decided to create a similar function for participants in Greeley’s adult basketball leagues. The Tournament will have both a competitive and recreation division with double elimination brackets. The fee is $175 per team and the registration deadline is March 7. Participants must be at least 16 years old to play in the tournament.
Teams can register at the Greeley Recreation Center or the Family FunPlex (1501 65th Avenue) as well as online at http://greeleygov.com/Recreation
- there are sixteen spots available – 8 for each division, so register today! Teams along the Front Range and surrounding Northern Colorado communities are encouraged to attend. Prizes will be given to the top teams in each league.
