Audacity of Hoops Basketball Tournament is a Winner!

More than 55 youth participated in The Audacity of Hoops 3 x 3 Basketball Tournament on Sunday, October 23rd. The event was held downtown Silver Spring on Veterans Plaza in front of the Civic Building. Ellsworth street was blocked off and turned into multiple basketball courts to host the event. 15 high school teams (and a great team of Montgomery County's finest fire and rescue workers) participated. Montgomery Blair and Springbrook squared off in the championship game with Springbrook High School walking away with the win! The exhibition highlighted the promise of addressing the County’s youth violence issues through providing high quality and adult supervised enrichment activities for teens. IMPACT proudly partnered with County Council President Valerie Ervin and Gabe Albornoz of the Department of Recreation to host the tournament. Thanks to Reemberto Rodriguez, Director of the Silver Spring Regional Center; Jewru Bandeh, Manager of the Civic Building; Jose Segura of the Department of Recreation; and the wonderful Recreation Department staff for helping to pull off the event!!!
