Hoops Mania FAQ's

Scheduling

Where can I find the tournament schedule?

A: We will use Tourney Machine for our scheduling. The goal is to have the schedule finalized and published the Friday (8 days) before the tournament. We will update Tourney Machine throughout the tournament with results.

How does scheduling work?

A: The goal is to get all teams 2 games per day. 

Can I request not to play at certain times of the day?

A: Yes, we will attempt to work with you on scheduling. For example, we understand that early games are difficult due to travel circumstances for some teams, or maybe you're coaching two teams and don't want the games to coincide. Don't be afraid to make a request.  However, we cannot guarantee all requests will be met, as the need to schedule 4 games limits scheduling flexibility!

What level of competition will we play?

A: This is dependent on the number of teams per age group. In the past, we have had a good variety of skill level which allows for competitive games. We'll do our best to match-up teams as evenly as possible.

Awards/Merchandise

Do we get anything for winning our pool?

A: Teams who go 4-0 get a Hoops Mania championship T-Shirt. 6th Grade and below teams who go 2-0 on either day receive medals.

Dick's Sporting Goods has given us prizes for drawings to giveaway, coupons, and other giveaways. They have been an outstanding supporter of Hoops Mania!
