Hoops Mania FAQ's
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: Teams who register for the $175 Four Game option will play two games Saturday and two games Sunday. The goal is to place teams in three team pools each day, and to play four different opponents over the course of the weekend.
Teams who register for the $100 Two Game option will choose to play their two games on Saturday or on Sunday, with the goal being to place each team in a three team pool.
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. We cannot guarantee all requests will be met, but we always do our best!
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 multiple pools for most of the age divisions, often three or more. We have a good variety of skill level in most years which allows for competitive games. We'll do our best to match-up teams as evenly as possible.
Do we get anything for winning our pool?
A: Teams who go 2-0 in a pool will receive medals. If a team goes 2-0 on Saturday and 2-0 on Sunday, they will receive an additional award.
