The Street Mayor, Kurke White says Saturday will include stretches and warm ups with professional trainers, the tournament, a free lunch and more.

This year they are encouraging girls to get on board and show the boys what they can do.

"We have a lot of gifts. The last few years we've given away TV's every year, shoes, basketballs, a whole bunch of things for them."
May 31st is the registration deadline and spots are filling up fast. You can sign up online here.
All of the money raised will benefit the Kendall Courts Project; a new basketball facility for the Friendly City.
