Get ready Tennant Creek – the popular National Indigenous 3on3 Basketball and Hip Hop Challenge – the Vibe 3on3® is heading your way on Wednesday 4th June 2014.

The Deadly Vibe Group produces the Vibe 3on3®, a travelling sport and music festival that brings together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and non-Indigenous students for a fun day of basketball, dancing and music.

The event encourages sportsmanship, teaches new skills and builds self-esteem, as well as promoting reconciliation at a grassroots level.

Students compete in teams of 4-5 players at the Vibe 3on3® in a range of activities. The action packed event features a 3on3 basketball tournament, rapping and break dancing lessons, art workshops, and a dance competition. There is also a health expo, all accompanied by a backing track of the latest RnB, hip-hop and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music.

The 3on3 also features an opening ceremony and a free healthy breakfast and BBQ lunch.

To participate, young people need to pre-register in teams of four or five through their school by Wednesday, 28th May 2014.

“We are very excited to be bringing the Vibe 3on3® to Tennant Creek. Planning is well underway to make the 2014 Tennant Creek event a fantastic and fun event for all involved,” says Vibe Head of Events Mayrah Sonter.

The event is capped at 400 students so get in quick to gain your spot. The event will be held at the Tennant Creek Sports and Recreation Centre, Ambrose Street, Tennant Creek NT.
