There are three divisions: Junior Divisions (18 years of age and below), Adult Divisions (19 years of age and above), and Top Divisions (Most experienced level of play). If you've never participated or attended the Macker, then you are missing a fantastic and fun event.

They also need volunteers, scorekeepers and basketball officials for the event as well. If you're a new official, this is the PERFECT event to get your feet wet and get some experience in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

You'll meet some fantastic people, make friends while having a great time. I'll be back for a second year and my only regret is that I didn't become a part of this sooner. It's as fun as it looks.
