FULTON, NY – This weekend, Fulton will transform into a basketball hub for several youth travel teams to partake in the 2018 Fulton Red Raider Basketball Challenge.

The tournament will include teams from third grade through eighth grade, hosting games at four schools throughout the Fulton City School District and at the Fulton War Memorial.

Games will begin on Friday, March 16 and will continue through Sunday, March 18.

Fulton Youth Basketball director Sean Broderick emphasized the tournament committee’s continued effort to give back to the community by accepting non-perishable food donations in lieu of admission fees for participants and spectators.

Just as last year, the donations will be given to the Oswego County Catholic Charities Food Pantry in Fulton.

Games will be officiated by NYS High School certified referees and each team will be guaranteed at least three games.

Championship games will conclude the tournament for each grade division, offering champion t-shirts to all winning teams.

Fulton travel teams for each grade division have been practicing regularly and competing in tournaments throughout the area, several teams having finished in first place.

The Fulton Red Raider Challenge has hosted teams from all over Upstate New York and Canada in years past, providing an organized, fun, and competitive tournament for youth.
