In preparation for the launch of the first-ever 3×3 basketball league in the country, Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3, Chooks-to-Go will head to Cebu to try and break a world record.
From January 11 to 13, the young dreamers from Sister of Mary Boystown and Girlstown will play in a two-day 3×3 basketball tournament organized by the Sahamahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.
“We have always been supporting the grassroots program of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas. Naniniwala kami sa lahat ng project ni Sir Sonny Barrios,” said Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. Sports Director Mel Macasaquit. “Kaya naman iniimbitahan namin kayong lahat na sumama sa event na gagawin namin sa January 11 to 13.”
The goal of this event is three-fold.
First is, of course, to spread the growing sport of 3×3 basketball. Second is to break the world record for most number of players in streetball.
Currently, the record stands at 7,296 participants during the Spokane Hoopfest 2009 in Spokane, Washington, USA.
“We want to have the world-record for most number of kids playing 3×3 basketball. It will take place in Cebu at the Sister of Mary Boystown. I think we are going to have five-thousand kids there,” Macasaquit shared.
With all the participants registering to the Play FIBA 3×3 app, the country will also get much-needed points to go up the 3×3 world rankings.
“After the event, we will declare how many points we have accumulated. We have a feeling that this activity alone will result to a year-worth of points,” he added.
Besides this, BAVI President Ronald Mascariñas will also make a donation to Sister of Mary.
