Long Island Nets hosting Hoop Fest at Jones Beach

The Long Island Nets will host a three-on-three youth basketball tournament during the team’s Hoop Fest Celebration at Jones Beach next weekend.

The youth tournament is part of the Long Island Nets’ Hoop Fest Celebration, a one-day event on Saturday, August 13, featuring fun for all ages, including a mobile video game truck, backyard games, and a DJ. There will also be local food options available for purchase and a meet and greet with Long Island Nets’ mascot, Dale the Eagle.

The three-on-three tournament is open to youth ages 8 to 16 and teams can consist of up to three players and one substitute. All registered players will receive a Long Island Nets t-shirt and will play in a minimum of three games. 

Winning teams in each division at the tournament, to be held at the basketball courts located just south of the Field 5 parking lot, will receive a trophy along with four complimentary tickets to the Long Island Nets’ home opener this November where they will be recognized on-court during halftime.

“We are proud to collaborate with our local partners at Jones Beach to bring summer fun to Long Island,” Alton Byrd, senior vice president of Growth Properties at BSE Global, the parent company of the Long Island Nets, said in a team statement. “This scenic outdoor facility provides the perfect backdrop for our tournament and allows us to celebrate the game in the community.”

Registration for the three-on-three tournament is $160 per team. For more information about the Hoop Fest Celebration and to register a team visit:
