2017 AAU Logo

Spokane AAU Basketball Club (Spokane AAU) is the region’s premier recreational league for boys and girls in grades 4 through 8. This twelve game league offers outstanding competition, beginning in November and culminating in February with a Championship Weekend, Hot Shot competition and All Star games. Spokane AAU also hosts three regional tournaments in the fall (Boo Ball Fall Classic), winter (Santa Slammer Winter Classic) and spring (Shootout Spring Classic). For more information on the league, or getting your child involved, visit the Spokane AAU website.

Outside Tournaments are a great way to stay in shape for Spokane Hoopfest in the off-season! And Spokane Hoopfest has partnered with MGM Resorts International® to bring our a-game to Toshiba Plaza at T-Mobile Arena and the top of the New York-New York parking garage for a weekend of cross-overs and 3-pointers. This event gives “Hoopfesters” the rare opportunity to play basketball while enjoying 360-degree views of the famed Las Vegas Strip.

IBA Logo1

Ignite Basketball Association (IBA – formerly known as Midnight Basketball Association) is a community and school-based outreach program that offers a safe, constructive alternative for area youth in grades 6, 7 and 8. The goal is to strengthen participants’ character, self-esteem and discipline so they are better equipped and prepared for the challenges of their teen years and beyond. This youth basketball program targets the population within the central urban neighborhood of Spokane’s School District No. 81. While basketball is the foundation of this league, the motivational workshops and recreational activity are also crucial elements. IBA has a need for volunteer coaches. This is a great way to spend a few hours a week making a difference in kids’ lives, while having fun. If you would like to coach a team we’d love to have you! Email Chad Smith for more details.

Spokane Hoopfest’s Charitable Donations have been a part of our core from the beginning. Since 1990, Hoopfest has built over 30 community outdoor basketball courts in the region and donated over $1.6 million to local, charitable organizations, including Special Olympics – our primary beneficiary; community centers and various youth sports and learning programs.

Eric Fox Memorial Fund
In July 2014, the Fox family suffered a tremendous loss in losing a husband and father, Eric. It is now the family’s desire to set up a fund to benefit the Ignite Basketball Association in Eric’s memory.

Fox was a Gonzaga University alumnus who was a control engineer and co-owner at Applied Solutions in Spokane. He was active in the lives of his boys and coached both youth basketball and baseball. Additionally, Fox refereed high school basketball games in the area for 20 years and was a member of the Washington Officials Association.

He left behind a family, a love for the game of basketball and a legacy of community contribution. Thus, the Fox family has selected to start a new fund, the Eric Fox Memorial Fund, which is to benefit the Ignite Basketball Association, a community- and school-based outreach program of Spokane Hoopfest Association and Spokane AAU Basketball Club that offers a safe, constructive alternative for area youth. Until this point, the league has been unable to fund paychecks for referees who work on behalf of IBA; the Fox fund will make this possible. Any additional monies will also benefit the larger IBA organization.

To donate to the Eric Fox Memorial Fund, please:

1) Make out a check to Spokane Hoopfest Association
2) Send it to:
P.O. Box 599
Spokane, WA 99210

…or contact the office at (509) 624-2414.

Spokane Hoopfest Association is a Washington non-profit corporation and tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

February is here and although snow is still piled high on Spokane roadsides, we’re already planning for June! Hoopfest weekend is only possible with the support of our many volunteers. In fact, volunteers play such a crucial role that court monitor sign-ups are already underway. Each year, Hoopfest provides Nike swag for court monitors, but for Hoopfest 2017, we're offering even more!





The hype for Hoopfest 2017 has already begun. While everyone is eager for the last weekend in June, first thing's first: registering for the big event! This year's registration is opening March 10, 2017. Don't miss out on a Saturday and Sunday packed with streetball, entertainment and an outdoor festival of good times!
