ELKINS - Randolph County Family Resource Network and America's Promise Coalition will be hosting the first Bounce Out Substance Abuse Community Basketball Tournaments in June.
The event is slated for June 28-29 at Harman School, with registration due by June 13. Brackets will be released June 20. Teams are guaranteed at least two games per tournament. The entry fee is $100 per team. Teams may be composed of middle school and high school students as well as adults. Co-ed teams also are permissible. Sixteen teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Games will be played in two 16-minute halves with a running clock. The clock will stay running at all times except for time outs. The clock will be stopped only in the last two minutes of the game in the second half, if the game is within 15 points.
Registration forms are available at the FRN office, by email or may be downloaded from the Randolph County Family Resource Network Facebook page.
The goal of the tournaments is to not only give area youth and residents the opportunity to play a sport they love but to help the organizations raise funds for substance abuse prevention activities throughout the county. The entry fee will be used to ensure substance abuse prevention continues within the schools and throughout the county in the form of educational programs, activities and community trainings.
