LGR Hoops opens Season 4 on Aug. 12

LGR Hoops, the fastest growing commercial league for people from all walks of life, is opening its Season 4 on Augu. 12 to cater to a bigger audience competing in different divisions.

Following the success of Season 3, organizers of the tournament have decided to expand the different divisions—the Novice, Novice Plus and Corporate Divisions—and put a ceiling to every category to make sure the balance competition.

The Novice Division, which is normally for players who use the sport as recreation, will have a six-feet-and-below event.

For players who want to take their game to the next level, the Novice Plus division is their sanctuary. The division is open to players not taller than 6-foot-3, who haven’t played professional, amateur and collegiate leagues.

In the Corporate Division, players of unlimited height are allowed to play provided that they haven’t played in professional, amateur and collegiate leagues and they must be regular employees in the company which they’re representing.

Two more divisions were added this coming season—the 5-foot-10 and below division and the 38 years old and above, whose players should not exceed the 6-foot-2 height limit.

In the 38-years-old-and-above division, players who previously played in the amateur league and collegiate players who last played in the league in 2012, can compete. Players from this category must submit their NSO certified Birth Certificate.

Registration is now ongoing and participating teams have until  July 28 to submit their line up. Entry fee for each division is P25,000 with a P15,000 reservation fee and P3,000 cash bond.

Interested participants can call mobile nos. 0908-8162829, 0917-3775629 and 0927-5409731. They can also make their deposit at LGR Athletic Wears, Inc. thru its BDO Account No. 007330052229.

LGR Hoops had already attracted more than 80 teams competing in different divisions and the league is expected to grow more with the inclusion of the Professional’s Division in future events.
