3×3 Basketball has become an Olympic Sport, and there’s an event on its way to Atlanta bringing the best of the best to Stone Mountain. Red Bull 3X is the series of events that identifies elite men’s and women’s players who could potentially represent USA Basketball in future competitions.
As part of the partnership, Red Bull is hosting qualifying tournaments across the country in seven different cities, and the hoops hot bed of Atlanta is home to an upcoming stop on Saturday, September 17.
The top teams at the Atlanta qualifier will advance to the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Regional, and potentially to the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals, which will be used to evaluate players for USA men’s and women’s 3×3 national teams for the Olympic Games.
3×3 is played on a half court with a 10-minute game clock and 12-second shot clock, where the winner is the first team to score 21 points or the team in the lead at the end of the 10-minute regulation.
Located at Stone Mountain’s International Sports Arena at 5639 Memorial Dr, don’t miss RedBull 3X on September 17, from 12pm until 5pm. The Women’s Division will be taking place from 12pm until 2pm, followed by the Men’s Division from 2pm until 5pm. Click here for more information by visiting their website.
