Smarter than Smoking NAIDOC 3-on-3 Basketball Competition
Kununurra was once again the basketball capital of the East Kimberley with the annual Smarter than Smoking NAIDOC 3-on-3 Basketball Competition held the first week of July as part of Kununurra’s NAIDOC week celebrations. There were three divisions within the boys and girls competition. They included the age groups 8-10 years old, 11-13 years old and 14-17 years old. The competition was designed with 8 minute games that made for quick ball movement as there was no time to sit back if your team wanted to make it into the finals. It was three full days of exciting basketball and finals games that were great to watch because they were played at such a fast pace. Awards were given out to players who showed good sportsmanship, helped with clean-up and also to those who played their games in good spirit and fairness.
