Hoopfest is an exciting wheelchair basketball tournament held annually since 1994 to raise funds in support of wheelchair basketball programs in British Columbia. A variety of corporate and community organizations such as the fire fighters and community service clubs participate in this event. Join BCWBS for an opportunity to play basketball sitting down! We'll supply the wheelchairs - you just come and have some fun!
A Fun Community-Based Fundraiser
- Hoopfest is a fun and unique one-day fundraiser hosted by the BC Wheelchair Basketball Society since 1994.
- Wheelchairs are provided for the teams, made up of a maximum of ten people, who participate in a round robin tournament finishing with the top two teams in a play-off game.
- A variety of corporate and community organizations such as the fire fighters, local media groups, and community service clubs participate in this event.
- Selected provincial and national wheelchair basketball players coach each team, provide instruction on how to use a wheelchair, and how to play the game of wheelchair basketball.
- The day also includes a demonstration of wheelchair basketball by BCWBS players and a fantastic silent auction.
Why support Hoopfest?
- As a not-for-profit society, BC Wheelchair Basketball utilizes Hoopfest to generate funds to support wheelchair basketball programs throughout British Columbia.
- The event itself creates awareness within the public sector about wheelchair basketball, the athletes involved and the abilities of people with disabilities.
How are funds raised?
- Funds are generated primarily through the registration fees that the teams pay in order to participate. A $1,000 registration fee includes entry for a team of up to ten participants, T-shirts, and lunch for all team members.
- Other organizations choose to make a donation without sending a team and of course we have sponsorship opportunities.
When does Hoopfest take place?
Hoopfest generally takes place in the Spring each year.
