* Players should
stay home if they are feeling sick or have any symptoms of COVID-19,

It has been a long time coming. After a year and a half of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, the future does certainly look brighter. With vaccinations on the rise and restrictions being lifted, a sense of normalcy is on the horizon.
You can see it - restaurants and bars are packed; parks are filled with enthusiastic ballers; even shopping malls are crowded.
We are excited to announce that the 26th annual 3on3 is BACK!!!
26 years and still a summertime tradition in the Chinatown community. For many of you, it is a chance to get together with friends or family members and play some 3on3 basketball, hang out and frequent some of your favorite Chinese/Asian restaurants. Each year, over 200+ teams participate over two weekends. Our 3on3 is the battle grounds for all Asian ballers. Tall or short, young or old, male or female, a college player, a gym rat, a street baller or just someone who plays occasionally. There is a division for everyone.
Registration has begun for this year's BLACKTOP BATTLE and ends on Wednesday, July 14th or as soon as divisions are filled. Divisions fill up fast so start facebooking, tweeting, or snapchatting your friends to form your "DREAM TEAM". SEE YOU OUT THERE.

ASIAN HOOPS - ALL ABOUT FUN
2/25/17 - Asian basketball is all about fun and nowhere was it ore evident than at the NACBA 2017 Pre Nationals at Competitive Edge Sports - King of Prussia, PA. Forty-four teams from the east coast and Canada came to play. Teams from Toronto, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York were well represented in addition to all the ethnic groups - Filipino, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Burmese, Malaysian, Tibetan, just to name a few. But it was the youths participating in the 11u and 13u divisions that put a smile on your face as you watch them go up and down the court with so much energy and passion. Keep working hard.
The evening was electric as over 450 alumni, friends and family members celebrated the 30th anniversary of the New York Rockits Athletes In Action organization. Early on, members welcomed New York Knicks legend, John Starks who dropped by to sign autographs and take pictures courtesy of founder, Leo Hirata. The evening continued on with special presentations to Richard "Quan" Wong, Denny Lee and NYC Sabres/NY Falcons founder, Tom Law. Throughout the evening, commemorative T-shirts were handed out to members and raffle prizes were offered to those lucky winners.
Special thanks to all the sponsors, donators, contributors for their generosity. Also, thanks to all the community organizations for attending and celebrating with us.
Nice seeing everyone. See you all again in five years!!!
