We’ve got an exciting new event coming to JustAgame Fieldhouse this June. We’ll have a basketball tournament every day from June 10 to the 25th. We’re calling it the BIG 1,000 Hoop Fest with the goal of drawing 1,000 teams over those 16 days. There will be a mixture of one, two, and three-day events. There are a variety of divisions for club/AAU, school, college, and adult teams.
Drawing 1,000 teams in just over two weeks is a crazy goal and no easy task. In order to get anywhere near that number, we know we’ll need to do a little extra. Our aim is to create a festival type atmosphere. JAG will be sponsoring live music several of the evenings at the new Duchess Plaza which is just two blocks from JAG at the intersection of Broadway and Oak St. right downtown Wisconsin Dells. All players will receive a free pair of sunglasses. In addition, we’re in the process to reaching out to area businesses and our advertising sponsors. We’ve got some exciting give-a-ways and promotions in the works. There will be daily raffle prizes and special events.
In order to make this an extra special event, we’ve got three charities on board. We want to make the BIG 1,000 about far more than basketball. $25 from each one-day, $35 from each two-day, and $45 from each three-day entry will be pooled together and split equally between the MACC Fund, Easter Seals Wisconsin, and Garding Against Cancer. A 5K run/3K walk will also be held on Saturday, June 24th. All of the profits will be donated to Garding Against Cancer. We want to help raise awareness for Coach Greg Gard and his wife Michelle’s new endeavor.
In addition, every entry into a BIG 1,000 tournament will include a $50 credit toward any future tournament entry at JustAgame Fieldhouse.
Registration for the BIG 1,000 Hoop Fest Tournaments is now open. See our website for the full schedule or check out our calendar. As always, register online or print and mail an entry form.
Thanks and hope your squad can be one of our BIG 1,000.
