THE ORIGINAL 3-ON-3
BASKETBALL FESTIVAL OF FAMILY FUN!

 

The original 3-on-3 basketball festival of family fun, also known as a Gus Macker Tournament, will be at Cicero North Syracuse High School once again this summer.

The Gus Macker Tournaments are designed for basketball players who love the fun of the driveway game – male or female, from age 7 to 70-plus, short and tall, the most experienced or those with little or no experience who just want to play.

Family fun in a festival atmosphere is always the goal of a Gus Macker Tournament, and we proudly serve as the most popular basketball tournament for outdoor play in downtown streets, parking lots and community parks across the country. The Syracuse-Cicero local tournament supports the CanTeen after school program which sits right next door. Why not support a good cause while enjoying a phenomenal weekend of basketball?
