SALEM, OR - Monday, April 29, 2019 - Team registration for Hoopla XXI is open.
Pricing in 2019 is $180/team if you sign up by June 17, and then will be $200/team thereafter. In 2019, teams will be allowed -- if they like -- to have up to five players on their roster. In the past, four players was the maximum allowed.
"We think this will help facilitate mutliple team participation, something that has really skyrocketed in recent years," said Hoopla Tournament Director Jason Unruh. "Having five guys alleviates some pressure if a guy or two happens to have games on two teams at the same time. Beyond that, it also reduces concerns about injuries. At the same time, if a team wants to have three or four guys, they can still do that. We think the five-player max will just create greater flexibility for all."
July 16 will be the final team registration deadline.
Hoopla XXI will be held August 3 & 4, on the streets surrounding the Oregon State Capitol Building in Salem. Hoopla, with more than 1,000 teams, is the grand-daddy and largest of Oregon's 3v3 street basketball tournaments.
