The goal of the Kids Summer Hoopfest is to provide an avenue for kids to have the opportunity to develop their skills, play against tough competition, and most of all HAVE FUN right here in Northwest Arkansas! And if you still want to participate in travel basketball several times during the summer, we've left several windows in our schedule open for you to do so.
WHO'S IT FOR ?
The target market for the Kids Summer Hoopfest is kids completing grades 3 - 6 at the end of the 2019-20 school year. Coaches will be able to create their own teams based on grade, and each grade will have its own division. Each division will be capped at 12 TEAMS, and registration is on a first come first serve basis.
WHEN DOES IT START ?
The start date will be May 30, 2020.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST ?
The dates for the Kids Summer Hoopfest are May 30, June 6, June 13, June 27, July 11, July 25, and August 1.
WHAT'S THE FORMAT ?
Kids will participate in a 45 minute basketball skill development boot camp from 8 - 8:45 a.m. led by some of the top basketball trainers in the area. They'll then transition to a 45 minute 3-on-3 series where the emphasis will be on learning how to play the game the right way. Starting at 10 a.m. teams will begin their league play, with each team playing a minimum of two games/Saturday. Regular season games will take place over six Saturdays during the summer culminating with a end of season double elimination tournament on August 1.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST ?
We believe that youth sports should be affordable for players and fans, and thanks to partnerships in the Northwest Arkansas community, the cost to participate will only be $75/participant for the entire Kids Summer Hoopfest series. The cost will cover all participation and jersey fees. For teams that don't need jerseys, the cost per participant will be $50. For kids that only want to participate in the training and 3-on-3, the cost is $45 and includes a Kids Summer Hoopfest t-shirt. Also, we don't want to forget about our fans. So, to watch your family and friends participate, we will only charge adults a gate fee of $5 and students (high school and below) will only be charged $3. Kids 5 and under will be free.
HOW DO I GET REGISTERED ? Like we mentioned earlier, this is NOT a league where we put your teams together. You get to put your own teams together. So, to register your team or as an individual looking to join a team or just participate in the training and 3-on-3, please click the corresponding link below. For those kids registering as individuals and looking to be a part of a team, we will have an individual tryout day at a date to be determined in early May in order to give coaches a chance to watch your child workout and potentially fill their roster or create a new team. If you need more information, contact (803) 602-4937 or email email@example.com. Registration deadline is May 1.
