The Cuyahoga Falls 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament organizers would like to thank all the volunteers, sponsors, and participants for a successful second year!
Four teams played in the tournament’s youth bracket, while 18 teams made up the adult bracket—eight more teams than in 2017! Winners in the youth bracket received a prize pack from the Riverfront YMCA, including a three-month membership, while the runners up received a one-month membership. In the adult bracket, winners received a $40 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods, plus a prize pack from The Cuyahoga Falls Natatorium, including a one-month pass. Runners up received a $20 gift cards to Dick's Sporting Goods and their own Natatorium prize packs.
Mayor Walters participated in our version of H-O-R-S-E—which we call C-F-O—and the YMCA was on hand to pass out t-shirts and more to the spectators. The rain held off save for a few short sprinkles, and Lions Park was once again abuzz with the spirit of competition and community.
Thanks once again to everyone involved! We’re excited to reprise the event in 2019 for the third year running!
