Coming soon to Waynesville and Pulaski County, Snack in a Pack presents the Second Annual 3 on 3 Basketball Madness on Saturday, March 24, with tip-off at 11 a.m.

This event is open to youth – grades six and up – and adults, and all teams will have the chance to become basketball champions on the Waynesville High School court. On-site registration begins at 9:30 a.m.

There will be three different brackets – grades 6-8, 9-12, and Adult (18+). The cost is $40 per adult team and $30 per youth team. The tournament style will be determined by the number of teams registered at the close of registration at 10:30 a.m. March 24. There will also be an individual shooting skills competition for $1 per attempt.

All event proceeds will support the Snack in a Pack program. Snack in a Pack is an AmeriCorps VISTA program that provides supplemental food packs to approximately 300 students in the Waynesville R-VI School District who might otherwise go hungry over weekends and long school breaks. Each pack costs approximately $5.00.
