Hoop4Hope Charity Tournament
Some last minute reminders about the Hoop4Hope Tourney:
-Please bring an AAU Play Hoops Roster and Scoresheet to turn in at your first game. If you have multiple teams you are coaching you can turn those in as well. Just check off your team and sign your name. We will have check-in spots at each location.
-There is a playoff portion of the tourney that will follow pool play. Each team is guaranteed 4 games. Every team will play at least one playoff game after pool play. If you are interested you can find the brackets online:
Find your team division and click on that button. Then scroll down to the bottom of that page to see the playoff brackets.
-There will be admission at each site...fans will pay once a day and get a wristband.$3 for 18 & older / $2 for 6-17 Coaches and players in uniform will be admitted for free.
-We will have a medical trainer available at the UAC. If you have a player that wants to have his or her ankles taped, it's free if the player provides his own tape. It's $2 if the UAC trainer provides the tape. An injury is different...the player will be treated immediately for no fee.
-A reminder to help keep the little brothers and sisters of your players from racing around the buildings. We will have a site supervisor at each site to keep an eye out, but we'd rather not have to pull kids off of netting and chin up bars...or shoo them out of hallways. Thanks.
-Finally...a plea to the coaches to ask their parents to support players and staff at the tourney...and for coaches to keep it dialed back on the sidelines. I am counting on you to make this tourney about the players and having a fun experience competing. Thank you in advance!
Good Luck in your games!!

We made some minor adjustments to a couple of teams schedules where there were back to back games at different sites. This has impacted a few other teams. Please double-check your schedule!

The Hoop4Hope schedule is now LIVE! We are maxed on every available court. I have checked and double checked for scheduling requests and I think we have addressed all of them as close as we possibly can.
The easiest way to access the schedule is through the E3 Sports app.
But if you really want to torture yourself, you can accces the online schedule by going to www.utahaau.com >Events >Hoop4Hope Tourney >Register. This will take you to our event site and you can find the schedule there.
THERE WILL BE NO CHANGES TO THE SCHEDULE AT THIS POINT.
Please have your AAU scoresheets ready for check in before your first game!
We will have several vendors at the Utah Athletic Center site...including tourney tshirts, concessions, team photography, etc. Remember...this is a charity event and we want to be able to make a great donation to the family of Cazzie Brown! (A flyer about team photography and team pictures is attached to this emai.)
Best of luck in the games!!

We are working hard on the schedule! We have 80 teams...with many thanks to all of your for your support of our charity event!
I will email everyone as soon as the schedule is ready to be published...hopefully by tomorrow night (Monday). All teams will play at least one Friday game.
In the meantime, please download the E3 Sports app. It has the E3 logo in orange on the app. This will be the easiest and quickest way to see your team's schedule, keep up to speed on game scores, pool standings and playoff brackets. I would also encourage you to let your players and parents know to download the app to their phones or tablets so everyone is on the same page.
This is an AAU certified event. All players and bench personnel MUST have a current AAU membership in order for our facility coverage and staff coverage to be in effect. Please go to www.utahaau.com. On the landing page is a box with info about setting up a Play Hoops account and creating your approved scoresheets for the tourney. ONLY these scoresheets will be accepted at the Hoop4Hope.
All teams will check in at their first game. Coaches will need to submit one scoresheet to be kept by the event staff. Please print 6 scoresheets...1 to submit at check in and 5 to use for games.
A parent from your team will need to sit at the scoretable and keep your team stats.
Attached to this email are the game rules. Please share them with your parents and players.
I'll be in touch soon with more schedule details!
