12 Jul FIBA 3×3
Since July 2017, Saskatoon has hosted the FIBA 3×3 World Tour Masters in Canada. The event — organized by Saskatoon Sports Tourism, in partnership with Canada Basketball — takes place in conjunction with Taste of Saskatchewan in downtown Saskatoon.
The FIBA 3×3 World Tour event sees teams from around the world participate in the main event, a slam dunk contest, and a three point shoot-out contest. There is also an amateur 3×3 tournament held alongside the main event. The FIBA 3×3 YXE event is a 74-team amateur tournament, comprised of youth teams from across Saskatchewan. SIGA has been the proud sponsor of 3×3 YXE since its inagural year in 2017, giving opportunities to our youth from the North and South to come to Saskatoon to compete in 3×3 basketball.
SIGA understands that they are not just developing athletes, but they're developing future leaders. - Michael Linklater, 3x3 professional athlete
