HOST A GUS MACKER TOURNAMENT
The Gus Macker Tournaments currently travel throughout the United States and Canada. Our goal is to create the ultimate hoop experience for players of all ages and talents. This family-oriented basketball festival visits about 50-75 communities each year. We hope to celebrate the half court pickup game while raising funds for worthwhile local charities.
The Macker system involves a partnership between our National Organization and Local Community Groups. These community-based groups are typically such organizations as:
- CIVIC/SERVICE CLUBS
- THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
- VISITORS AND CONVENTION BUREAU
- CITY PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENTS
The relationship between Macker and the Local Group requires the local group to own the event, while Macker provides tournament expertise and project management. The Macker model gives a national brand and tournament system to a locally promoted and sponsored festival.
Please feel free to contact us and request further information about hosting a Gus Macker Tournament. The more background information you can give us, the better we can direct your efforts. This program normally takes a minimum of 6-8 months to organize, so please plan for this type of timeline. Thanks and we hope to see you on the court!
