 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the cost to enter the tournament?

Standard Fees, maximum roster is seven players:
Teens (15-19): $125 per team
Adults (20 & Up): $150 per team

What are the tournament age divisions?

Boys 15-19
Girls 15-19
Men 20 & Up
Women 20 & Up

Please note that our divisions are by age. The division a team plays in is determined by the birth date of the oldest player on the team. All players must match the appropriate age, and no player may be older than the age listed for that division or the entire team will be flighted in the next age division. In instances where there are less than four teams in your youth age and skill level, your team will be moved up to the next age grouping in the same skill level.

What is the deadline to register?

The deadline to register for the event is the Tuesday before the event at 5:00 p.m. (CST). Once the deadline has passed it is very difficult to add additional teams as the scheduling process will have started.  If you have missed the deadline and still wish to register, requests will be evaluated on a per event basis to ensure that adding a late team does not cause a negative impact on those teams that registered on time. Please contact us at 866.543.4351. 

Do we have to wear a jersey?

No, you do not need to wear jerseys with player numbers, however it is very helpful if possible.  Your team should plan on wearing the same color of shirt/jersey and to bring a back-up set of a different color since two opposing teams can’t wear the same color in a game. 

When do we get our schedule?

Schedules will be posted online to the Hoops & Hope Tournament page by Friday afternoon at 1pm CST.

Can we change our team name?

We can’t guarantee that your team name change will be reflected in the brackets, so it’s important that you give us your correct team name when you register online.  If you want to change it, however, we can do our best to make sure it’s reflected in the brackets – just call us at 866.543.4351 and we will do what we can.
