Basketball players across various skill levels and ranging in age from 15 to 50 and over will participate. 

Several NBA celebrities will make appearances to sign autographs, pose for photos and maybe shoot some hoops. The Westchester Knicks City Dancers will perform.

The previous three tournaments raised more than $200,000. Last year's funds helped 60 underserved youth athletes to participate in Friday Night Tennis, 30 Mount Vernon children to experience weekend summer camp and covered the travel expenses for more than 200 children to participate in a Travel Soccer program. 

Teams will be divided into the following divisions: open (most competitive), 35 years and older (competitive), adult recreation (18 and over) and high school (grades 9-12). 

Games will be played in a round robin format. 

Registration is a tax-deductible $1,800 per team, which includes three to five players, individual jerseys, hats, bags, food, beverage and more.

The fundraiser will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Iona Preparatory School. 

Backyard Sports Cares is a West-chester-based nonprofit dedicated to providing team-based sports for underserved and special needs children.
