While high school football, soccer and volleyball teams are still in the tournament season, it will be a day of basketball at Northland Pines this Saturday, Nov. 2.
The third annual Northwoods Basketball Skills Challenge and 3-on-3 Tournament will take place at the high school field house for fifth- through eighth-grade students.
Open to any North Woods boy or girl in fifth through eighth grade, the event is a full day of basketball challenges, entertainment, games, a huge silent auction and raffles.
It is not only a basketball-themed fun day, it is the biggest fundraiser for the Northland Pines Youth Basketball Program (NPBA).
