News from #UnitedByBasketball

Laurynas Misevičius, Chair of the World Lithuanian Community Sports Committee and the Lithuanian Athletic Union of North America Executive (LAUNA-ŠALFASS)  

The Embassy of Lithuania to the United States invites you to participate in our annual Embassy’s Basketball Cup. It is that time of year again! The tradition that began 17 years ago will look a little bit different this year due to COVID-19 and will be brought to you on a virtual platform.

We are offering you a variety of contests to choose from and an option to participate as a team or as an individual. As long as you can find a basketball court, a ball, and a phone to record your video,  you are all set and ready to join our virtual event! 

We are looking forward to seeing how far your imagination takes you in this contest for that most interesting shot! 

We invite you to join our Virtual Basketball Tournament! Wherever you are in the world – it is your time to shine and show us that you haven’t lost your basketball skills during the pandemic! All you need is a basket, a ball, and a phone to record yourself crushing the three point shooting contest or making 100 free-throws in a row!
