The Eighth Annual New York NCSY Community Basketball Tournament is to take place Sunday, May 4. Round-Robin play for 5 × 5 and 3 × 3 teams begins at 9:00 a.m. at gyms throughout the fIVE Towns. After concluding the morning rounds, the teams gather at Lawrence High School for a pizza lunch hosted by Shula’s Pizza and the Sweet Sixteen 5 × 5 Championship Bracket.

The mission of NCSY’s Annual Tournament is to provide a day of enjoyable basketball and family fun for the fIVE Towns community, as well as to build awareness and support for NCSY’s programming and activities throughout the New York area. Each year, New York NCSY engages thousands of Jewish teens in social, educational, and leadership opportunities, and provides scholarships for those with little or no Jewish background who are looking to enhance their Jewish identity through NCSY summer programs or post-high-school study in Israel.

As in the past, this year’s Tournament looks to be highly competitive, attracting top basketball players from across New York and New Jersey. During the afternoon games, children of all ages will be treated to entertainment, and food and snacks will be available for purchase.

Throughout the day, tickets can be purchased for our Spring Scholarship Raffle–with a grand prize of two round-trip tickets to Israel. The drawing will be held prior to the final championship game.
