The Hip Hop Congress of Rockford, IL (RHHC) is expanding its community-involved events into a basketball tournament on Sat, September 28th, 2013 from noon to 6pm, at Booker Washington Center, located at 524 Kent Street in Rockford.
This tournament is the first event of its kind for RHHC and still encompasses all of our core values with the hip hop culture. This tournament will be double elimination and will consist of 3 on 3, half-court basketball games. At least sixteen teams will be competing for a $300 cash prize and RKFD hats from the popular local clothing line and sponsor, RKFD Collection. Teams can register for the tournament by going to www.rockfordhhc.org/allcity and filling out the registration form. There is a $30 registration fee for teams, with a maximum of 4 players per team, and only for ages 16 and up. Players can pay online at the registration link, or teams may also sign up on the day of the event.
The event is absolutely FREE to the public, and will feature food provided by Anjan’s Eats, a popular food vendor among our events and also participants at the Rockford City Market and beverages will be sold by Booker Washington Community Center. Bourbon glazed pork chop sandwiches, brats, cakes, hot dogs, fries, water, and soda for sale while you watch some of the best local talent Rockford has to offer.
Music will also be a special part of this event. Live DJs will keep up with the games with kid friendly tunes and special performances from popular Rockford hip hop artists are scheduled before the championship game.
THE RKFD All-City Basketball Tournament will begin at noon on September 28th, and we are anticipating the event coming to a close at 6PM, at which point, the winner of the tournament will be presented with the $300 cash prize by RHHC and also their own RKFD hats by RKFD Collection.
