Call for AYOF volunteers

The 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival is coming back to Sydney in January 2013, with Basketball 3x3 as its main event.

From 16 -20 January, 2013, Sydney will be alive with the Olympic fever as young athletes from around the world come together to experience their first international multi-sport event. With 24 nations competing in 17 sports in venues across Sydney, and an Opening Ceremony at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, this is a really special event.

To top it off, the Basketball 3x3 Competition will be staged at one of Sydney’s most famous locations- Darling Harbour. On outdoor courts at the Chinese Gardens forecourt, teams will play through three days of competition with the aim of standing on the podium at the medal ceremony.
