at the Otis “POPS” Brown Basketball Court!

SLAMfest is our annual basketball tournament and fundraiser benefiting elementary school children in the DFW metroplex. This event is spearheaded by Otis and Rosie Brown Foundation Board Member and organization co-founder, Jamaal Brown.  Jamaal created this event in 2009 to give back to his alma mater, Sam Houston High School AISD, by bringing together current students and alumni with a fun filled, competitive day of community basketball games and community giving.  

Join us for our 11th annual celebration on August 14, 2021, from 4 pm to 8 pm, at the Otis “POPS” Brown Basketball Court at Bob Cooke Park in Arlington, Texas!  Bob Cooke Park is located at 2025 Craig Hanking Drive Arlington, Texas 76010.  This event is FREE to attend. Food trucks will be onsite selling concessions. 

To register a team or to play as an individual on an existing basketball team, please email Jamaal Brown at for more event details.
