    Hi there,

    I wanted to be a court monitor last year but couldn’t because of the training session. I come from out of town and won’t be there until Friday evening. I played in hoop fest for a few years and lots of basketball experience but I’m hurt and can’t play.

      We would love to have you as a Court Monitor. If you want to reach out to Chad@spokanehoopfest.net he can help set up a time for you to get a training session prior to the games. Thanks!

    Like you, Katie, several years ago I was unable to play at Hoopfest, but knew I still wanted to be involved in the existential experience – there is nothing quite like it for the true hoopster. So, my brother, who had coached girls teams at Hoopfest for 18 years, called Chad who set us up on adjoining courts. That was 8 -10 years ago (at my age precise details have little relevance). I come back every year because it is fun, contributes a great sense of comradery for the weekend, and helps me to give something back to basketball and the community that has been such an important part of my life. It does help that my wife is a Hoosier. I just finished my 60th year of play; I’m pretty much able to play because of the kindness of my friends, but I love this game.

    Be a monitor! Send an e-mail to Chad and he’ll get you set up. It is, as my grand-niece – who played for several years and is getting married today – says “crazy fun”!
