Ontario Basketball believes that 3x3 basketball will play a vital role in the development and growth of the sport in this province. 3x3 is gaining steam worldwide with the FIBA 3x3 World Tour and World Championships.
The 3x3 Canada Quest East Finals is one of two Canadian qualifying events for the FIBA 3x3 World Tour and is open to adult males (ages 18+).
The winning team qualifies to represent Canada in the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters in Mexico City on July 16 and 17 (all expenses paid). The finalist from that event earns a berth to the World Tour Masters Final in Abu Dhabi on October 27 and 28, 2016.
