ABA’s Summer Jam moves indoors

Rescheduled event runs Tuesday and Wednesday at Abbotsford’s W.J. Mouat

The Abbotsford Basketball Association’s 3X3 Summer Jam will be taking its talents indoors.

The event, originally scheduled for Aug. 8 and 9 at Dave Kandal Park in west Abbotsford, was postponed due to the poor air quality in Abbotsford earlier this week.

According to Environment Canada’s Air Quality Health Index, the Central Fraser Valley’s ranking for both Aug. 8 and 9 was a seven – a high risk to those engaging in strenuous activities outdoors.

ABA organizers have now moved the tournament indoors at the W.J. Mouat Secondary school gym, with games occurring on Aug. 15 and 16.

“Thank you everyone for understanding and supporting us,” stated the organizers in an online message. “It would have been an unreal outdoor event, but the reality is it’s not logical.”

Day one features U12 to U15 athletes, while day two sees U16 and over divisions competing.

Registration on both days occurs at 4 p.m., with games running from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The event is expected to feature approximately 51 teams from all over B.C. and Alberta.
