Dear Shalom Parent/Guardian,


GenNext Weekend 2019 Basketball Tournament

Friday, March 8th at 7pm 


We are excited to share that on Saturday, February 16th, from 12 noon - 2pm at Hazelwood North Middle (4420 Vaile Ave.), we are inviting all interested young gents and ladies, grades 3 – 12 to participate in a series of practices leading up to the tournament.


The Next 2 practices will take place on Saturdays: 2/23 & 3/2 at Hazelwood North Middle.


The Tournament will be held at the North County Recreation Complex (2577 Redman Avenue) on Friday, March 8th, from 7p – 9:30p.


Through our youth athletic offerings we hope to do the following:

  • Promote health and fitness while teaching fundamental skills
  • Provide a positive peer group of Christian influence
  • Nurture character (e.g. sportsmanship, teamwork etc.)
  • Build mentoring relationships
  • Provide an opportunity for fun and fellowship that will nurture healthy relationships between our youth and supportive adults


There will be a parent meeting as well on Saturday, February 16th, from 12 noon - 12:30 pm at Hazelwood North Middle to inform youth and parents of the expectations and guidelines for participation in the Basketball Tournament. If you have questions, please contact the Shalom Church Administrative Office at (314) 653-2316.
