A new annual community event will begin August 11 from 2-11 p.m. Kanab’s Main Street will be shut down for the Inaugural K-Town 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament. 

Beginning just north of Hwy 89 on Main Street, residents and visitors can watch players of all ages (third grade and up), women and men, girls and boys, play 3 on 3 street-ball on several basketball courts, with multiple games played simultaneously.

This community event will provide not only a fun day of free entertainment with music and socializing, but also vendor booths with food and treats and children’s games. Items will be on sale and available to browse for the duration of the event.

Holly Robison, long-time Kanab High School teacher and volleyball coach, has always wanted to put an event like this together for the local community, and graciously offered her ideas and efforts to spearhead the event, along with the help of JaNae Willis.

The event will benefit local dancers in the community with all the proceeds going to the locally operated and founded Eleve Dance Arts Foundation, a non-profit charity dedicated to providing funding and quality dance arts opportunities in rural communities. Despite her own personal medical trials she has endured the past few years, Holly willfully has donated much of her time to the planning and management of this large scale event, so bring a lawn chair and come enjoy a day out about town.

Registration fees are $30/player or $25 if an additional family member registers and the fee includes a T-shirt. Teams must register by August 9, so the schedule can be made up.

Trophies will be awarded for division winners. Booth rental is $25. Divisions are as follows: Girls or Boys - Grades 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, High School, Women’s Recreation A (18-29), Women’s Recreation B (30+), Men’s - Competitive A (18-29), Competitive B (30+) and Couch Potato (18+)
