With registration for Hoopfest 2021 closed, we are thrilled to STILL be the world’s largest 3on3 basketball tournament. It goes to show the undeniable spirit of Hoopfest! As we turn our full attention to executing the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth, here are some things we would like you to know.
We are 100% planning for a safe, successful, and fun Hoopfest in September, but like any good point guard, our eyes are wide open to all possibilities. We are certainly watching the latest developments with the Delta variant of COVID-19 and paying close attention to air quality with the Air Quality Index (AQI). To that end, our lines of communication with Spokane Regional Health District, the City of Spokane, and MultiCare Health System are wide open.
All signs point to Hoopfest next month, and we could not be more excited!
However, in the spirit of preparation, communication, and candidness, we must scout both ends of the floor. As we plan for the tournament, we must also look at alternatives, specifically if we are not allowed to hold the event and tournament.
Due to COVID before 8/17: Full team refund, if requested
Due to COVID after 8/17: 20% team refund, if requested
Due to Air Quality or other circumstances: No refund

Simply sign up for your regular Hoopfest non-elite division. Then round up either seven or 15 more Hoopfest teams you want to play against and who agree to play against you and we’ll create your own bracket.
