Midnight Madness is the big final celebration of the basketball year.
Held at the conclusion of Term 4 Navigators just before Christmas, Midnight Madness involves all kids who have been a part of the Tauranga City Basketball Representative & Navigators Programme throughout the year. Those who participate in Navigators Term 4, get discount and first right of entry.
All kids from Under 9s through to Under 19s are drafted onto teams & encouraged to dress in the team colour allocated to their team.
The event is huge hit with all athletes as they get to come together to play the game they love, all the way through to Midnight.
Shooting competitions, parents versus players games, team prizes and individual prizes are all part of the night.
A particular highlight is the pizza, fizzy drink and pudding handed out at around 9.30pm.
Each player leaves with an enhanced love of the game, and a Christmas present.
More details will follow closer to the time but an evening not to be missed!
This year’s Midnight Madness will be held on the 16th December.
"Midnight Madness 2016
12 teams x 12 players = 144 players, maximum could have involved with 6 courts utilised. Mega event, heaps of fun ... Thanks volunteer coaches, admin and help throughout the evening. Thanks senior players for being awesome role models and getting into spirit of event. Always amazed how the very youngest can find second and third wind to last to midnight. Been a great year, fantastic way to finish off, bring on 2017!"
