2013 Northwoods 3 on 3 and Skills Challenge

The Northland Pines Basketball Association (NPBA) held it’s 3rd Annual Northwoods Skills Challenge on Saturday, November 2nd. The event offers something for everyone in the family.  The day started with 16 teams playing in a three on three tournament that crowned winners in three divisions.  After the tournament, there was a Free Skills Challenge for the boys and girls 4th Grade & Under run by volunteers Jim Beyer and Greg Gremban.  “Jim organized a great event for the kids that really allowed them to work on their dribbling and passing while having a ton of fun.” Stated Greg Gremban.

Throughout the day, the parents and kids were able to take part in a silent auction, raffles, concessions, they were able to play games on the big screen TV and X Box purchased by the St. Germain Lion’s Club (those then get raffled off at the end of the night)and of course there was a ton of basketball to be played.   

The Main Event was the Northwoods 3rd Annual Skills Challenge.  It was kicked off with the smooth vocals of our own Northwoods Idol, Madeline Consoer, 29 boys and girls qualified for the Main Event and it wasn’t over until over 40 additional Trophy’s were handed out include this year’s MVP’s Hadley Kruse and Blake McCann. [Over 70 trophy’s were donated by the Eagle River Rotary Club for events throughout the day including the 3 on 3.]  In between there was music, raffles, six ties that needed to be decided, pressure, laughs, dancing, and our most popular event, The Shooting Stars.  

As always, 100% of the funds generated from the event and the sponsors are used for the volunteer run Northland Pines Youth Basketball Program (K-8thGrade).  This, their only real fundraiser of the year, will help fund items like uniforms, basketball camps, equipment, buses, referees, and everything that goes into running the program.
