The newest addition to the Haggen Family 4th of July Celebration will give the area’s hoop stars a chance to shine! Our area’s first ever Hoop It Up 3×3 Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 4 at Bellingham’s Zuanich Park.
Hoop It Up is the premier 3-on-3 basketball tour in the United States. Since 1989, Hoop It Up has reached more than 500,00 athletes. Our Hoop It Up tournament, presented by Haggen, is currently the only Hoop It Up event scheduled to be played in Washington in 2015.
Each team must consist of four players: three starters and one substitute. Games are played under FIBA rules on half-courts. Divisions include categories for youth, recreational adult, competitive adult, and height requirements. Winners and second-place finishers in each division will receive an award.
“Hoop It Up is great for adults who play pick-up games at the gym, or kids who play together in their neighborhood. Anyone from pros to couch potatoes can compete,” said Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Guy Occhiogrosso. “It’s also ideal for high school basketball players who want some competition while staying in shape, or college students who are looking for a summer alternative to intramurals.”
Teams may sign up directly through the Hoop It Up website. Anyone age 8 or above is welcome to form a team. The team registration fee ranges from $100-$140 depending on the division.
