REGISTRATION OPEN FOR JAY DOOLEY 3-ON-3

dooley-1172682On Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17, the Jay Dooley Memorial Foundation (JDMF) will present the Fourth Annual JDMF 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament at Holy Cross School in Rumson.

The two days of hoops action will feature fun, camaraderie and serious competition…but most importantly, the Tournament will raise funds for local children and teens with learning disabilities and depression. One hundred percent of proceeds benefit JDMF community partners, and help families in need of critical mental and medical health services for their children.

The Tournament attracts more than 500 individuals and 100 teams, including many high profile Shore players and former college players. Tournament age brackets are girls: ages 10-11, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-19; women: ages 20-29 and 30 and older; boys: ages 10-11, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-19; and men: ages 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and older. Start times are 4 p.m. on May 16 and 7:30 a.m. on May 17. Official game times for age brackets will be posted the week of the tournament at www.jaydooley.com.

“The JDMF Annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is an occasion when we can gather as family, friends and community to celebrate a sport that gave my son Jay so much joy,” said Jay Dooley Memorial Foundation president Jerry Dooley. “We look forward to the tournament every year. Funds raised at the event  We seek to be a community resource for these families and honor Jay’s memory through the JDMF’s mission.”

Jay Dooley (pictured) attended Forrestdale School and Holy Cross School in Rumson, where he developed his athletic abilities and his love of the game of basketball. He played three years on the varsity basketball team at Rumson-Fair Haven High School, where he scored over 1,000 points. After graduating from RFH, Dooley accepted a full basketball scholarship to Monmouth University, where he was a member of the 2001 Hawks team that played Duke University in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Cost to register is $150 per team of three, and an additional $25 per player for up to five players. Individuals are also encouraged to register, and will be matched up with a team. Games are officiated by certified officials according to National High School Federation Rules. Go here to register, or email [email protected] with questions.

Donations are accepted throughout the year. Visit www.jaydooley.com or mail your check to: Jay Dooley Memorial Foundation, Attention: Jerry Dooley P.O. Box 22, Rumson, NJ 07760.
