The Wild Wild West 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is an annual event to help raise money for the scholarship and grants fund at the West Campus of Des Moines Area Community College. This year's goal is to raise $40,000 for future DMACC scholarships. In addition, this family-oriented event will create a positive economic impact by bringing hundreds of players and fans to central Iowa.
The tournament is designed so that anyone–male or female, young or old, short or tall–can play as part of a participating team, and it encourages community involvement in a fun and entertaining atmosphere. Besides tournament play, team members and spectators can participate in a 3-point shooting competition or a slam dunk contest.
