On June 17th and 18th, The Winchendon School hosted a basketball tournament sponsored by The Future Hoops AAU program, a local non-profit organization based in Gardner, MA. Twenty-three teams, with players aged 10-18, descended on campus for two days of intense competition. Families in attendance reported that it was a lively tournament, and at least one rising Winchendon 9th grader was on the court.
Leslie Hicks, the Director of Operations at The Future Hoops, stated that “even though this was one of our smaller tournaments, everyone enjoyed it with a lot of great competition going on.” Winners in each division qualified for the Crossover Hoops Nationals tournament taking place in Pennsylvania later this summer. All food and beverages sales from the tournament are being used by The Future Hoops program to help fund the trips of local families to Nationals in July.
The Winchendon School would like to thank The Future Hoops program for putting on a great event.
