NBA Jam Session Winnipeg - Aug 13-14 at The ForksWe plan on seeing you at The Forks this weekend! Tons of basketball fun will be taking place on Saturday including appearances by Buckets Blakes from the Harlem Globetrotters, Slamson (Sacramento King's mascot), Toronto Raptors Dance Pak members and NBA Legend Dee Brown! It all gets underway at 11am.  NBA Jam Session is back and gearing up for our six city stops across Canada this summer – join us for a fun, free weekend of basketball events. Both days are jammed packed with activities for all ages!  After a successful inaugural tour last summer, NBA Jam Session will again be visiting six Canadian cities this summer including a stop in Winnipeg on August 13-14 at The Forks.  NBA Jam Session is an interactive basketball festival that includes events for basketball fans of all ages to try their hand at activities that include a three-point shootout and slam dunk contest.  For those that crave team competition, NBA Jam Session will also be hosting a three-on-three tournament for which participants must register. Due to the popularity of this event last year, however, registered teams will be placed into a draft lottery to determine whether or not they can be entered into the field.  For more details on the weekend and a list of all the tour stops...
