Guardian is our official 2019 Sportsmanship Award sponsor

Guardian is our official Sportsmanship Award sponsor

Guardian is the newest Major sponsor of Spokane Hoopfest, and they’re going all in to encourage inclusive, fair and just play on our streets. This year, Guardian is supporting the disabilities division courts and is the Official Sportsmanship Award Sponsor of The Best Basketball Weekend on Earth.

As this year’s Official Sportsmanship Award Sponsor, Guardian is arming each Court Monitor with Good Sport Award cards. Court Monitors will give these cards to any player that they see exemplify what it means to be a team player. If a player is given this card, they can take it to the Guardian tent located on the corner of Spokane Falls Blvd. and Wall Street and receive some AWESOME prizes. Some of those include a miniature Hoopfest Nike game ball, custom designed Hoopfest socks, basketball water bottle and cooling towel.

Join us for a game of HORSE on Sunday, June 30 at 11:25 am with Washington native and 2x NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas and Phillip Croft, ParaSport Spokane athlete on the courts next to the Guardian tent. The game will be MCed by Dr. Feranmi Okanlami and will show that “disability is not inability.”

Watch Dr. Okanlami’s story below:

Hoopfest wouldn’t happen without the support of our sponsors and Guardian has stepped up to make #Hoopfest2019 our best one yet.
