The Gus Macker Makes Its 4th Appearance in Rochester

 

The Gus Macker 3 on 3 basketball tourney makes its fourth appearance in downtown Rochester on July 16th and 17th. Held in the shadow of the legendary Blue Cross Arena on Court St at the Riverside Festival site. The event features not only a fun, competitive tournament for all ages and skill levels but also free family activities both days. Rochester will be jamming as the Macker features local youth talent showcase with dancers, vocalist and other upcoming stars. There will be activities for all family members from bounce houses to food vendors.  Check out our various community health/wellness agencies, unique retail vendors and other unique buskers.

 

All basketball games will feature paid referees to insure quality play and sportsmanship.  We will host evenly matched brackets for all age groups 8 to 80 years old.  Everyone will have the opportunity to test their skills with our Free-Throw and 3-point Shooting skills challenge.  High flying athletes can showcase their “hops” with the Dunk Contest that is certain to create a new Rochester “hoop-legend” instantly.  Check out the first responder court as the play for pride and the special trophy.

 

All proceeds from the Rochester Gus Macker Event support local youth sports programs in the area. Don't miss your chance to "show your stuff " and be a part of one of this summer's premier events. Get your team together and register today!
