Hoopfest, Spokane's famed three-on-three basketball tournament, is extending its popular outdoor, all ages event to more than one weekend a year.
The organization has announced it will host an outdoor league, starting in March.
“With the move to Phase 2 high risk sport games are able to be played out doors, so we want to spin this up because we know that people are interested to play basketball,” said Connor Walsh, the Program and Events Manager for Hoopfest.
He said the league will host full court, five on five games. Teams will range from third grade to adults.
The outdoor games will be played at basketball courts scattered throughout the Spokane City Park System. Everyone involved will be required to wear a mask, including the players.
Registration opens Saturday at 8 a.m. and is first come first serve. The league will begin March 13 and will run for eight weeks. Registration is $600 per a team.
Information on how to register can be found on Hoopfest’s website at hooptownusa.com. Scholarships are also available for players who cannot afford the entry fee.
