One Hood Tournament 2017
Celebrating 11 years this summer, the One Hood Tournament is back for 2017! This year, similar to last, we will have 6 teams with 10 players each, and two coaches per team to help with the staff-to-player ratio. Under AG’s Healthy Summer Jobs initiative, we are able to employ young adults with positions that help the community. The basketball games will occur two nights a week between July 12th and August 18th. Every Thursday from 3-5pm participants can work out with BU fitness trainers. See below for the full list of dates, and check back for more information as the date approaches.
The games will take place every Wednesday and Friday at the Blackstone Community Center’s indoor and outdoor courts. Three games each day, at 6pm and 7pm:
