Red Sports and adidas are putting on a 3-point shootout contest as part of the adidas Nations Basketball League.

Last year’s winner was Desmond Heng of Fairfield Methodist Secondary who beat 35 players in the shootout.

All registered school players are welcome to join the shootout contest that will see each player get 25 3-point shots.

There are no restrictions on gender. If you think you can take on the guys, feel free to sign up too, ladies.

The shootout is scheduled for 11am, Saturday, February 21st, 2009 at Catholic High. The final round of games in the adidas Nations Basketball League will tip off at 1pm the same day.

To sign up, go to the online registration form.

Registration is free and closes midnight, Sunday, February 15, 2009.

Only registered school players, 18 years of age and under can take part.

adidas is sponsoring shoes for the top 3 shooters.

N.B. Someone asked about prizes in the chat box. As you may have come to realise by now, Red Sports is not loaded and if we organise anything, we do it because we think you might have fun doing it. If there are prizes that adidas wants to give, they will. But we decided a 3-point shootout is fun, prize or no prize. Things cost money to organise and so if any money is spent, it will go to organising the event for everyone to take part in.

Registered 3-point Shooters

N.B. Players currently in the adidas Nations Basketball League squads are not eligible for prizes.
