Return of the IBC Basketball Triathlon!

Ipswich Basketball are re-introducing what was once an annual event in the calendar: the Ipswich Basketball Club Basketball Triathlon. The event, which many of the senior players have fond memories off, requires the club’s players to collectively meet some impressive targets.

This year, the event will be held on the 25th August from 10am-4pm at Inspire, Ipswich. The fundraising event will not only support the running of our club for the coming season, but will also support Cancer Research UK. In addition to raising money the event will bring together all the teams, supporters and parents from across IBC for a fantastic day of fun and achievement.

The junior players will work up a sweat completing 15,000 chest passes, 15,000 bounce passes, 10,000 overhead passes, 10,000 offhand passes, 10,000 lay-ups, 1,000 free throws, 500 3 pointers and 3 half court shots in addition to each player dribbling 5 kilometers. Players, parents, supporters and spectators can also tuck into our on-site BBQ from 1pm, and partake in fun for all the family, including a raffle and other games.

The day will be hugely enjoyable for parents, supporters and players alike. Every junior team from the club is taking part in the sponsored event and will all contribute to the targets that we meet. It is the individual players’ responsibility to go out and get as much sponsorship money as they possibly can for taking part in the triathlon.

To ensure the smooth running of the day, if your child can take part, please email your child’s name, the team they play for, and an emergency contact for the day to hoopstriathlon1@outlook.com. You can download a sponsorship form by right-clicking on the example below.
