Genesis City will present the Third Annual Spring Slam at Eastlake Park Community Center on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The event will be open to all Phoenix youth ages 13 to 18 and feature a 3-on-3 double elimination basketball tournament. There will be sixteen teams of five players each competing in two age group divisions, for a total of 32 teams. Participants will be recruited from Central Phoenix and there will not be a registration fee to allow all players an opportunity to participate. Lunch, water, and a commemorative t-shirt will be provided to all players. The top four places in each division will receive medals.
Our goal is to provide a free athletic event to these teenagers which will encourage exercise and promote healthy choices. In line with the work of Genesis City, the event will empower under-served, at-risk youth to stay in school. Genesis Rising Star Student Ambassadors will be at the event to discuss how they have been able to break down the real and perceived barriers to education that they faced. Information on education, college readiness training, life planning services and workplace skills will be presented to all participants in the tournament.
