3X3 CANADA QUEST COMPLETES STOP IN ONTARIO

 

Canada Quest is a 3x3 basketball tournament that makes its way across Canada with stops in various provinces. The Quest made its stop in Ontario from June 17-18 at McMaster University in Hamilton. The tournament hosted a number of male and female divisions from U10 to 18+. Not only did the tournament offer divisions for a variety of ages, but it offered parasport and co-ed divisions as well. 

“With the support of local basketball programs and community partners, our hope was to deliver an event that not only creates an opportunity for engagement, but also leads to the development of the sport at the local, provincial and national level. I believe we successfully accomplished that. With the attention directed towards 3x3 and the expansion of the sport by the International Olympic Committee, I am especially excited about the influence of the event,” said Kristian Ferreira, the event coordinator. 

One of the highlights of the Canada Quest is the Adult Elite Division. Team Toronto (aka 4NEM) won the division with a 4-2 record on the weekend. The winners of this division advance to the Canada Quest National Finals at West Edmonton Mall from July 7-8. The National Finals will provide 4NEM the opportunity to qualify for one of seven FIBA 3x3 World Tour qualifying tournaments, which is in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from July 15-16. The winners of the qualifying tournament advance to the FIBA World Tour Finals being held in Beijing, China from October 21-22. 

The conclusion of the Ontario stop for the Canada Quest coincided with a historic week for 3x3 basketball, as the International Olympic Committee and FIBA announced their decision to include 3x3 as part of the Olympic basketball program starting with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
