Basketball players of all skill levels flooded the courts at The Forks over the weekend for the NBA Jam Session.

The two-day interactive festival is currently touring Canada and aims to further grow the sport throughout the country.

Players 13 and older competed in the 3-on-3 all ages tournament, which is hitting a total of six cities this summer.

Finalists in the 19+ category in each city will compete against each other in the Canadian National Finals at the last tour stop in Halifax.
