Regular season games will take place on Saturdays in venues throughout the Spokane area. In addition, we also host three weekend tournaments over the course of the season.
The Home team must wear a white jersey. The Visitor team will wear a dark jersey.
The Spokane Regional Club Basketball League for the 2023-24 season will ‘Grandfather’ the current 6th grade boys (who participated in the 2022-2023 league) into the upcoming Club Basketball Season.
In addition, any/all 7th & 8th grade boys and girls teams are eligible to participate in the 2023-2024 league season.
Teams will be registered strictly on the basis of their grade in school for the school year, as of September 2023. Any questions regarding grade level will be verified with the school listed by individual players. Any player that is in a lower grade level may play up a grade level.
In addition to our 10-game season, Spokane Hoopfest Association will feature three additional events that add to the overall experience for each of our athletes. Whether it’s the culmination of six seasons in our program with the 8th Grade Boys and Girls All-Star Games or our free throw and three-point contest for players to show off their clutch shooting skills, Spokane Hoopfest Association offers a season full of games, competitions and festivities.
The 9th Annual Spokane AAU All-Star Game will occur on Sunday, January 21, 2024, at West Valley High School. Our 8th-grade players will use the regular season to perfect their skills, with a select few having the opportunity to battle it out on the court!
Within Spokane AAU, every 8th coach nominates two players from their team and two players from the other 8th grade teams who they believed performed exceptionally during the season. The players with the most nominations are chosen, and the teams are formed for what have become some of the biggest games in January each season.
Nominations for the All-Star Game must be remitted no later than Monday, January 8th, 2024 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to provide our athletes with another opportunity to play and be celebrated. This is what our All-star game accomplishes for our league.
Rosters will be posted the Monday prior to the games.
The Hot Shot Competition is a great way for athletes to test their shooting skills against others. We offer both a free throw and a 3-point contest. Each team can qualify one free throw shooter and one 3-point shooter (they cannot be the same athlete). This is FREE for the athletes and gives a chance for every team to be represented in a fun competition. The Free Throw and 3-Point Hot Shot Competitions are always packed with young athletes with the ability to shoot the lights out!
The names of each team’s two representatives must be submitted no later than Monday, January 8th, 2024 to email@example.com.
Round 1 will take place on Sunday, January 21, 2024, at West Valley High School with the Final Round taking place on January 28, 2024. For additional information regarding rules and times, download a copy of the 2024 Hot Shot Information form.
Championship Weekend will be held on January 27-28, 2024! Save the dates and help us celebrate our 33rd Anniversary and the teams that competed all season for a chance to participate in this exciting weekend.
What fun – to cheer on the teams as they compete for a championship title. These teams have put in countless hours of hard work and practice to prepare for what is set to be the biggest weekend of their season.
Tentatively, on Championship Sunday, the finalists from each grade level that competed in Round 1 of the Hot Shot Competition will have an opportunity to win it all during the half time game of their respective grade. The top four competitors from each grade level – for both the Free-Throw and the 3-point contests, will be shooting in Round 2 and will showcase their skills.
Each team is responsible for its own uniforms. Uniform types may be either a reversible jersey or two separate jerseys. Regardless of type, there must be one white (home) and one dark colored (away) jersey for each game. Numbers must be on both the front of the jersey (minimum 4” tall) as well as the back of the jersey (minimum 6” tall), and must be centered vertically as well as horizontally. The numerals 6, 7, 8 and 9 are illegal and cannot be used alone or in any combination. The officials must be able to signal the jersey number with one hand.
The entire coaching staff (head coach and maximum of two assistants) for each team will be required to sign-off after attending the meeting. Only the head coach will be able to pick up the team’s packet – picture i.d. will be required.
Meeting date TBD
If the head coach and assistant coaches do not attend one of the scheduled meetings, they will NOT be eligible to coach in the league during the upcoming season.
