Sunshine Games Looking for 3×3 Players in North Bay, August 27th/28th

Volleyball Canada and Canada Basketball are pleased to announce the creation of the Sunshine Games in partnership with Nipissing University Athletics, Vision Sports & Entertainment and the City of North Bay.

Showcasing the CANOR Molson Sand Centre in downtown North Bay, the Sunshine Games will take place on the final weekend of August 27th & 28th and will feature athletes participating in the Volleyball Canada Senior Nationals and a Canada Basketball 3×3 tournament.

The newly developed partnership between Volleyball Canada and Basketball Canada is hoping to introduce new fans and participants to the exciting disciplines of beach volleyball and 3×3 basketball.

Exciting, urban and innovative, 3×3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. Steered by FIBA, the world governing body for basketball, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.
