This tournament is based on the annual Team izzat 3-on-3 event that has been running since 2004. The Team Izzat is a group of police officers and college students who volunteer on their time off to connect with youth through sports and educational programs. 

Team izzat 3-on-3 is very well established with approximately 80-100 youth participating each year. Izzat means honour and respect in Punjabi and Hindi. Team izzat was created by S/Sgt Jet SUNNER while working with Richmond RCMP in 2004.

The inaugural Richmond RCMP/ICBC tournament will feature three divisions — Boys Grades 10-11, Boys Grades 8-9 and Girls Grades 8-10. Co-ed teams are permitted but must compete in a boys division. 

Teams can range from three to five players. Entry deadline is Monday, May 20. Register by sending an email to jet.sunner@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. Please include all players names, phone numbers and division your team wishes to play in, as well as your team name. Every player gets a free t-shirt and pizza. Winning teams also receiver medals.

For any additional information call 604-644-4415.
