Cleveland is home to the 2016 National Basketball Association’s (NBA) National Champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers. As a proud community, we knew in order to showcase our city’s deep passion for the game, we had to offer the sport of basketball to our masters athletes during Summer 2024.

A team sport, in this case 3v3, basketball features players competing with one backboard and a half-court set up. Teams alternate by dribbling, passing and shooting to move the ball down the court into the net with the goal of outscoring their opponents.

The 2024 Pan-American Masters Games is one time where traveling in basketball is okay. To Cleveland we mean, not on the court.
