Hercules to attend FIBA 3X3 workshop in Puerto Rico
The Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) has selected Junior Hercules to be Guyana’s representative in Puerto Rico, where the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) will host a 3X3 Workshop from May 6 – 8.
According to a release from the GABF, upon his return to Guyana, Hercules will oversee the hosting of two 3X3 Tournaments before November 2016. These national tournaments are for male and female players born on or after January 1, 1999.
The winning Teams will qualify for an all-expense paid trip to participate in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) 3X3 U-17 Championships.
FIBA is promoting and funding a global three-on-three structure that will allow smaller countries to participate in the Olympics; in addition, FIBA expects the 3*3 format to have a significant impact on the development of basketball in countries that do not normally qualify to play in major international tournaments.
