In conjunction with its annual Spring Fest celebration, St. Joseph Parish of Sunnyside will hold a 3-on-3 basketball tournament Saturday and Sunday, June 1-2.

Competition will be held at the Lincoln school parking lot and begin at 9 a.m. both days.

The tourney is open to boys and girls ages seven to 17. The registration cost for a four-person team is a total of $75, which includes a tourney t-shirt for each participant.

A trophy will be awarded to each age group championship team, as well as individual members of the winning teams.

A second-place trophy will also be presented to each of the age group runner-up teams.

In addition to the team competition, the parish will hold a 3-point shooting contest for each age group prior to the championship game. There is a $5 fee per shooting participant and each shooting champ will earn a plaque.

A concession stand will be on site with food and beverage items. In addition, lunch and dinner will be served across the street throughout the day during Spring Fest activities.
