has been decided to also have a “Slam Dunk Contest” for the following middle
school. Our premise is not a “pie in the sky” to “hook you up” with an AAU team
or “plug you” to a college… Now this doesn’t pre-suppose that a scout or coach
might “peep you” throwing down” and offer you a tryout, etc; etc.
goal is to simply provide a “venue” where young people can have fun and
complete in a local slam dunk contest with a 8 foot basket… Be daddy, grandpa,
mama, might be cousin or best friend come to watch them compete. Ditto for the
high schoolers performing in the 9 foot “Slam Dunk Contest”.

winners in winner take all completion. (Spring Break 2021)
