Missed the 25th Anniversary? Rewatch the FUN and Action NOW!!
Hoopfest is a celebration of Wheelchair Basketball, where corporate and community teams of 5-10 players participate in a fun evening that includes a wheelchair basketball tournament, dinner and raffle prizes. This is a great team building and networking event that pairs corporate and community teams with current and former National Team athletes and our next generation Canada Games level team members.
Funds raised from Hoopfest allow BC Wheelchair Basketball to continue to run programs/leagues/tournaments, provide equipment and advocate for inclusive physical activity opportunities for British Columbians with a physical disability.
Hoopfest itself gives our supporters the chance to try-out the inclusive sport of wheelchair basketball, while interacting with the athletes who benefit directly from their contributions. We look forward to announcing the details for our 2021 Hoopfest - where you can impact kids, communities and programs thoughout British Columbia.
Who Can Get Involved?
Partners: Organizations, corporations, or individuals who make large contributions to the evening such as sponsoring a court, providing apparel etc.
Supporters: Organizations, corporations, community groups or individuals who provide smaller (but still very important!) items for registration bags, raffle prizes etc.
