Families and friends fill the stands to cheer on their team during Hoops Madness!
Inspired by March Madness, the NCAA college basketball championship, Hoops Madness offers kids and adults a chance to play half court, 3-on-3 games of basketball, and participate in a variety of shooting contests. Players are encouraged to form teams of four (three players and a substitute), or they can be placed on a team the day of the tournament. Brackets are based on specific ages, and children compete against his/her peers.
All players will receive a CHCA Hoops Madness t-shirt and are eligible to participate in the 3-point, foul-shooting, and half-court shooting competitions. Families and friends are also encouraged to fill the stands and sidelines. Throughout most of the day, six games will be going on at once and, in between games, players can warm up and practice their shots. Matt Paul Sports is one of the event's sponsors and provides basketballs, referees, and coaches to help players in between games. Food and drinks are available.
Typically held in mid-to-late March
The price for children 6 to 18 years old is $15, for adult CHCA Members $20, and for non-members $25.
