The game of basketball has always been a way to teach life lessons. The D1 Sports Training facility will hold a tournament designed to promote just that.

The second annual North Clic 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, scheduled for next Saturday, Nov. 14, is designed to bring awareness to the positive healthy relationships basketball creates, promote understanding of how to communicate properly and good sportsmanship.

For this year’s tournament, North Clic will be partnering with NBA star Chris Paul and his Chris Paul Foundation, D1 Sports and Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. Paul is from the Winston-Salem area.

North Clic originally began as a clothing brand, but founder Lloyd Leonard Jr. decided to revamp the brand into a fundraising opportunity for youth programs.

This year’s tournament will have some added flavor: Last month it was announced that Joe Pope will be hosting the tournament. Pope was voted Streetball’s Best Announcer in 2014. He is mostly known for announcing the Under Armour Elite 24 tournaments that are aired on ESPN.

The tournament will feature a live DJ as well.

A number of participants from last year’s tournament said they had been looking forward to this year’s tournament to show their skills. They expect the tournament to be a lot bigger than last year’s.

Registration for the tournament will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14. Those looking to pre-register can do so by signing up at D1 Sports Training at 1901 Mooney St.

The tournament is open to all genders ages 7 to 45.

Cost for team registration is $50. Proceeds earned will go to the Chris Paul Foundation and the D1 Sports Training facility. For more information on the tournament, call (336) 825-7004 or (336) 210-4788.
