To our Hoopfest family,

We recognize there is a lot of uncertainty around COVID-19 and we hope everyone is staying healthy in these unprecedented times. Our hearts go out to each and every one of you as we adjust to our new normal and we thank you for your patience as we navigate this together. While COVID-19 isn't in any of our playbooks, the health and safety of our community remain our top priority.

Hoopfest has been a bright spot every summer for the past 30 years - not only for the 24,000+ athletes, but for our local businesses as well. We are continuing to operate (from a safe distance) and monitor the situation in hopes of celebrating the 31st Hoopfest in June. Registration is and will continue to remain open for June 27-28; however, COVID-19 is wildly unpredictable so we’ve reserved August 22-23rd as an alternative date. As our situation is changing daily, we will make the ultimate decision to postpone by the end of April. 

There is a great deal of agility required by all of us to overcome the challenges presented by COVID-19. We know many of you have planned for an amazing Hoopfest 2020 since Hoopfest 2019 and we acknowledge the complexities around travel and accommodations. We are working diligently to make Hoopfest 2020 safe and available to all. 

For your peace of mind, we modified our “no refund policy” so that you can feel safe in your financial commitment. If we postpone Hoopfest 2020 to August 22-23, you will be given the option to maintain your registration, request a full refund from our office, or donate your registration to support the organization* during these challenging times. 

We will unite again as players, volunteers, fans, and sponsors together under the hoop. We are one team in Hooptown USA and it is more important than ever to remain optimistic and remember that we will be there for you this summer and for the next 31 summers.

See you soon,

- Spokane Hoopfest

Every year Hoopfest is made possible by the 3,000 plus volunteers it takes to run the basketball-packed weekend in downtown Spokane. Offering a number of different positions, with varying times throughout the weekend, it is easy to find something that will fit just right for you! Can’t be here Hoopfest weekend? There are several volunteers needed for pre-Hoopfest tasks for which we would love your help. And of course, volunteering doesn’t come without its perks. As a token of our appreciation, every volunteer receives a free t-shirt.

Volunteers will receive a confirmation shortly after signing-up for Hoopfest. Final confirmations, including shift locations and times, will be sent approximately two-weeks prior to the Hoopfest weekend.
