2017 Warsaw Hoopfest
for 5th-8th grade boys and girls
@ Matthew Knight Arena
The first annual Warsaw Hoopfest, formerly known as the KIDSPORTS Invitational, is a coed event where each player will register individually as a "free agent." Registration will close on March 30th. This year, there will be a $10 registration fee per person. Each participant's registration fee of $10 gets them a t-shirt, lunch, access to play basketball in Matthew Knight Arena. Due to the changes in format, we have placed a registration cap of 180 players, so solidify your child's spot quickly! For details on the event and a look at this year's agenda, please visit the Warsaw Hoopfest tournament website.
Throughout the day the players will be under the instruction of staff leaders where they will learn important lessons on sportsmanship, teamwork and integrity all in Matthew Knight Arena. During their time with us, children will be involved in a plethora of activities to enhance their game. For instance, participants will be enjoy sets of skills challenges where they will be able to demonstrate their talents. This event will also include a “round robin” style of play throughout the day where each team will play every team in their respective groups.
In addition to team play, participants and families will have the opportunity to hear from well respected members of the UO Athletic Department to get insight on why it is important to be a respectable athlete. KIDSPORTS very own Bev Smith will provide a seminar for parents and spectators and how you can do your part in supporting your child’s athletic career.
Being that we would like to welcome families to attend and enjoy the day with us, we invite spectators to watch gameplay, participate in the seminars and test their luck in various raffles! Coffee, donuts and other foods will be available for purchase at the event as well. (players are given food)
During their time with us, players will be given a free t-shirt, various door prizes, and will be provided with lunch. To end the day, participants will gather at an awards ceremony where various achievements from throughout the day will be recognized.
