When is the team entry deadline?
In order to guarantee your desired division, Hoopfest must receive your completed registration form on or before the guaranteed deadline (exact date is still TBD). After the guaranteed deadline, we will welcome your completed registration only on a space available basis until final cut-off, which will be posted once registration opens.
I went through the online registration process, but was not able to complete the payment step at the end. Is my team registered?
No. In order for the online registration to be submitted and processed, the payment step must be completed successfully. Upon successful completion of the payment step, a receipt will be sent to the email address entered during the payment process. Once the team registration has been fully processed, the team captain will receive an entry confirmation email within 24 hours containing the team number as well as other vital tournament information.
Do all team members have to be the same grade/age?
No. You can build your team however you like. Keep in mind however, that it may not be possible to bracket teams with very diverse player characteristics against other teams of similar makeup and youth and high school teams will be bracketed by grade-level according the highest grade-level on the team.
Does Hoopfest offer a family division?
Yes, there is a family division. All team members must be related to your designated team captain. See complete information in the Standard & Other Divisions section under "Play".
Can I play on more than one team?
While we do allow individuals to play on more than one team (teams must be in dissimilar brackets), we cannot control game schedules to guard against scheduling conflicts. Individuals playing on multiple teams could have multiple games scheduled at the same time.
Can we enter a co-ed team with only one member of the opposite sex?
Yes. Keep in mind, however, that co-ed teams must have members of the opposite sex on the court at all times. Therefore, on a team with three males and one female, the female would have to play the entire time, each game with no rest. If this female would become injured or otherwise unable to play, then the entire team would be disqualified.
Our youth team consists of both 4th and 5th graders. Will we still play on an 8' hoop?
No. Mixed-age youth teams will play at the level of the oldest team members. We will make every attempt to bracket teams such as this against other teams of similar makeup.
Can we get a sponsor for our team?
While some teams elect to recruit team sponsors to help cover the cost of registration, this is solely the responsibility of the team, as Hoopfest does not recruit or provide individual team sponsors. You or your business can receive a complimentary team entry by becoming a Hoopfest 2019 Court Sponsor.
What are the official rules of Hoopfest?
Hoopfest is a 3on3 streetball tournament, so the rules and regulations might be different than what you're accustomed to using for organized, indoor basketball. Don't worry though, you can get familiar with our rules here.
WHAT impact does hoopfest weekend have on the local economy?
Thanks to students from Gonzaga University, we have a document available that highlights those numbers. Check out our stats here.
