A team from Rockford Park District’s Jr. NBA Basketball leagues is heading to the Jr. NBA National Basketball Championships in Dallas, Texas.

The 3v3 championships will be held April 13th, 2019 at the Gaylord Texan Resort.

The 12U Rockford Rim Rockers defeated nine teams in the qualifying tournaments in Aurora earlier this season.

Rim Rockers team members are: Champ Parker, Ellis, Damareay Davis, Kennedy; Sterling Hoarde, Flinn; Christian Cummings, Eisenhower; Milli’on Riley, Lutheran; coach Herbert Parker, Jr., and team mom Quatecia Jones.

The national championships will consist of 96 teams in eight divisions of boys and girls. All players will receive free lodging, meals, uniforms, shooting shirts, and will meet NBA and WNBA legends at the welcome reception event.

“These young men competed against some of the best athletes in the Midwest, and also showed outstanding sportsmanship throughout the tournaments. One of our goals at the Rockford Park District is to identify recreational trends, and 3v3 basketball is a growing trend for our youth. It’s a fast-paced game that can be played on a half-court, with only six players needed. Jr. NBA will ensure these kids have an experience they will never forget,” said Lamont Jones, Rockford Park District Youth Sports Manager.

Rim Rockers team members are: Champ Parker, Ellis, Damareay Davis, Kennedy; Sterling Hoarde, Flinn; Christian Cummings, Eisenhower; Milli’on Riley, Lutheran; coach Herbert Parker, Jr., and team mom Quatecia Jones.
