Richmond RCMP are looking to hoop it up with local youth this spring.

Richmond RCMP are looking to hoop it up with local youth this spring.

Led by Staff Sergeant Jet Sunner, police officers are hoping some 3-on-3 streetball will be just the ticket to help them make positive connectionswith high school students in grades 8 through 11.

An outdoor basketball tournament, organized in partnership with ICBC, is set for Sunday, June 16 at the India Cultural Centre at 8600 No. 5 Rd. There is still time to sign up, but you have to submit your team of three to five players by June 5 via email to jet.sunner@rcmp-grc.ca. Include player names and contact information, as well as team names and division entered.

Co-ed (boys and girls) teams are welcome, if they compete in a boys’ division.

The free, one-day classic is based on the successful, annual Team Izzat classic which Sunner started in Richmond in 2004 with a group of fellow police officers and college students, who all volunteer during their time off to connect with youth.

Every player receives a free t-shirt and pizza to fuel the fun. Medals will be awarded to the winning teams.
