Hoopfest registration is underway


With Hoopfest just days away, teams are starting to check in and get ready for a weekend full of hoops.

On Thursday, teams picked up packets and got their first glimpse at the 2013 player t-shirt. 

Kianna Nelson, 10, said she planned on putting her own twist on the players shirt for the weekend. Nelson added she’s looking forward to getting on the court.

“Because this year I think I will finally have a good team and I think I have a good chance of winning,” Kianna Nelson said.

Tanner Marr’s checked in all three teams he’s playing on this year.

“I know I’m crazy but I like it,” said Tanner Marr. 

“I like playing Hoopfest, I do it every year.  And I have just a bunch of friends I wanted to play with so I said why not lets do three,” he added.

You can find team check-in near the Nike Hoopfest Store in Riverfront Park.  Check-in runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday.  Volunteers said you need to bring ID and know your team number. If you don’t check-in your team will be disqualified.
