Urban Dreams has made it part of our mission to improve community-police relations in the Des Moines Metro. We are excited to collaborate with Beyond Ball and law enforcement agencies across the metro to host the first annual Kids and Cops 3-on-3 basketball tournament.
This 3-on-3 basketball tournament is like none other. Yes, there are standard age divisions (2nd grade – 12th grade) for both boys and girls playing games to 21. However, what makes this tournament different is that high school aged teams will have a police officer on the team as the fourth player. A police officer will coach the teams in the younger divisions.
We know that out-of-car experiences are beneficial for both police and the community that they serve and protect. Therefore, we like to be part of making it happen.
We hope that you are ready to ball at the Kids and Cops 3-on-3 basketball tournament. High school teams should only register three players per team. We will assign a Police officer to each team.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions. If you would like to sponsor a team, multiple teams, or the event in general, please call Izaah Knox at 515-288-4742.
