PDF Print E-mail


Trojka iz Bloka (TiB) the popular three-point basketball competition held throughout Serbia, Republika Srpska, Montenegro, USA, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, officialy landed in Canada on April lst. The event raised $15,499 for the 11-member Milovanović family from Loznica, Serbia. The parents with their nine children live in an unsafe run-down structure. SZS is rebuilding the home to provide a safer and environmentally healthier house. TiB Canada had over 100 players take part in the friendly competition organized by Serbs for Serbs and the Sports School Junak. The event was held at the Haber Recreation Centre, Burlington, Ontario.

Thank you to Ognjen Stojaković, assistant coach of the Denver Nuggets, for the TiB promo video and to the Serbian newspapers Toronto Novine and Vesti for keeping the story front and centre.

A big shout out goes to the boys and girls from the Sports School Junak who gamely picked up the balls after every throw, making sure the players had them on time. Serbian sports stars in the making! “Hvala” to Father Jovan Marjanac and Ɖakon Radovan Kodić for their words of inspiration.

During the two-hour event, DJ Neven pumped out the music and MCs Jovan Brkić and Dan Ozimković kept the 300-plus crowd upbeat as they cheered on the shooters ranging in ages from 8 to 58.

Competition was fierce and there were even a couple of ties! But the scoreboard never lies. Winners at the lst annual Canadian Trojka iz Bloka event were:
• 1 st place: Igor Trbojević ​ (14 points)
• 2nd place: Mario Čaušević​ (14 points)
• 3rd place: Mladen Jokić ​ (13 points)

When Serbs come together, great things happen!

That’s precisely what happened when 25 Serbian businesses throughout the GTA stepped up and said “apsolutno” to supporting Trojka iz Bloka Canada.

Huge success of first tournament in Canada is opening new opportunities for TROJKA IZ BLOKA mission!

Be a part of a team that is changing future of socialy endangered children across Balkan!
