The TRC hosts an annual summer basketball tournament at Sara D. Roosevelt Park in Chinatown, Manhattan. The tournament is open to players between ages 13 and 21 – we typically have a female, male, and junior division. Participants sign up as teams of four and play a series of 3-on-3 basketball games to win a grand prize. Players and spectators enjoy an afternoon of music, games, and activities. Health information and materials are provided during the tournament.

The goal of the tournament is to promote exercise and good sportsmanship among youth. Teen Health Educators from the TRC are available throughout the day to provide information concerning various health issues, such as nutrition, exercise, and body image, to help educate on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

🌟 Thank you to all our basketball players, tournament volunteers, and the community for participating in this year’s event! Our 16th annual game would not have been made possible without everyone’s energy, sportsmanship, and support. 🌟
