26th Annual Summer 3on3 CANCELLED

After 3+ months of the NYC Pause, hopes were high that we would be able to host the annual summer 3on3 blacktop basketball championships. Unfortunately, this isn't possible with the cancellation of all special events/athletic permits by the NYC Parks/Recreation till August 31, 2020. Held each summer, the 3on3 has always been a mainstay of the Chinatown community bringing friends and family together for a couple of weekends of competition and friendship. Having lunch or dinner at local restaurants, bakeries, bubble tea, and dessert cafes and talking about how I made that shot are just some of the memorable times we share. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.

Be well. Stay safe. Practice social distancing and SUPPORT the local businesses in CHINATOWN.

TAKE PRECAUTIONS

" Social distancing - avoid group get togethers
" Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
" Wash your hands regularly
" Avoid touching your face
" Avoid close contact with people who are sick
" Get your flu shot - it s never too late
" Stay home if you re feeling sick. Call your doctor and let them know your symptoms and travel history.

 

CANCELLED
With the recent news by the (WHO) World Health Organization proclaiming the COVID-19 a pandemic; the NBA suspending their season; the closings of so many colleges/schools, it is in the best interest of everyone that I cancel this weekend's basketball tournament.

Cancellation of the tournament is not something I like to do. But it is necessary at this stage because we need to help to slow the spreading of this disease. I would feel awful if one of our participants unknowingly contracted COVID-19 this weekend and subsequently spread it to family members (brothers/sisters, parents and especially grandparents who are most at risk). By helping to slow the spread of this disease, it buys time for medical experts to develop interventions and possibly vaccines. It also buys time for seasonal weather change, as warm weather may reduce the transmission of this disease.

All we can do is take it day by day as this pandemic is not something that we have faced before. News changes daily. I urge everyone to listen to FACTS from experts in the medical and health industry, and local and state government leaders.

Stay safe.

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.
