On Friday, November 15th, 2019 The Vernon ROCKS Coalition held our Annual Community Basketball Tournament. The yearly event aims to provide youth with a safe, healthy and entertaining activity on their Friday night and demonstrate that there are alternatives to using substances.
The tournament had over 45 players, comprised of 9th-12th- grade students playing 3-on-3 with officers from the Vernon Police Department and staff from Rockville High School, reminding students that they have positive adult role models in the community that they can go to when they need help or just need to talk.
The coalition would like to thank everyone who participated and helped make the event possible!
