Vibe 3on3 comes to Toowoomba

The all new National Indigenous 3on3 Basketball and Hip Hop Challenge – the Vibe 3on3® – is coming to Toowoomba on Friday August 6, 2010.

The Vibe 3on3® brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for a fun free day of basketball, dancing, music, health and culture. The event encourages sportsmanship, teaches new skills and builds self-esteem as well as promoting reconciliation at a grassroots level.

Hosted by former Harlem Globetrotter Dwayne Cross and Aboriginal basketball star Claude Williams, the action-packed Fun Friday event features a 3on3 basketball tournament, rapping and break dancing lessons, art workshops, a dance competition and a health expo, all accompanied by a backing track of the latest RnB, hip hop and Indigenous music.

To participate in the Vibe 3on3®, young people need to pre-register in teams of three to five through their school by Friday 30th July. The event is capped at 400 kids so get in quick to gain your spot at the 3on3. The event will be held at Toowoomba PCYC on James Street, Toowoomba, on Friday August 6, 2010 & will feature an opening ceremony, face painting and a free healthy breakfast and BBQ lunch.

The Vibe 3on3® aims to promote healthy lifestyles, strengthen communities and boost self-esteem. The Vibe 3on3® is also an excellent opportunity for health services and related organisations to introduce themselves to the wider community. For more information go to

The Vibe 3on3® would not be possible without our sponsors Rio Tinto Aboriginal Foundation, the Jimmy Little Foundation, and the Department of Health and Ageing through the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Vibe Australia. Thank you to our local sponsor, the Toowoomba PCYC.

We also thank our supporters the Koori Mail, Deadly Sounds and Deadly Vibe.
