Basketball Fans can look forward to a Three Point Shootout contest next month, hosted by The Light it Up! Citizens Committee. Players will have the chance to win awesome prizes while raising money to erect lighting at the Potomac Yard Park basketball courts!
The preliminary round will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 2-4 PM at four Rec Centers across the City:
- William Ramsay
- Charles Houston
- Cora Kelly
- Mt. Vernon
Vice Mayor Justin Wilson, and City Council Members Willie Bailey, John Taylor Chapman, and Tim Lovain will officiate.
The semifinal and final round will take place at TC Williams' High School during the two halftimes of the TC Titans boys and girls varsities' doubleheader against Lake Braddock High on Tuesday, December 13 with the winners from each location competing for the chance to win a one year league membership through United Social Sports (a prize valued at $1,000), a set of three Next Level Skills clinics hosted and run by the Alexandria Kings AAU basketball club (a $150 value), or a pair of tickets to an upcoming Washington Wizards game.
Players of all ages can enter at a ticket price of only $5/person and donations will also be accepted at each location. All proceeds will be put to defray the costs of erecting athletic lighting at the Potomac Yard Park basketball courts, are fully tax-deductible, and will be matched by the City of Alexandria.
