BECAUSE WE CAN. 3X3 – Toronto
Lead Thru Sport and 21 Basketball Academy present BECAUSE WE CAN: A 3×3 Tournament to Empower Girls.
The BECAUSE WE CAN. Series is designed to break down internal and external barriers for female athletes. We empower girls to embrace new experiences and explore different opportunities on and off the court. We encourage players to embrace these new experiences with a positive and confident attitude.
Due to the tournament goals of promoting autonomy, leadership, and confidence amongst girls at a young age, coaches and parents were not allowed on the court.
BECAUSE WE CAN. 3×3 tournaments are a safe space for athletes to try new skills in a formalized game environment. The nature of having fewer players on the court allows athletes to truly participate with more touches on the basketball, and to have more opportunities to be leaders and meet new friends.
