  With the first decade of the HOOPFEST BC Tournament in the books, the summer of 2015 looks to write a new chapter in the history of the event.  On the weekend of August 15/16, CENTRECOURT once again welcomes players and teams out to the Langley Events Centre to participate in the annual summer basketball tradition.  With no frills and no gimmicks, the Hoopfest BC Tournament provides participants the opportunity to compete in up to six games against some of the best talent that BC has to offer. For the past two years, two teams have dominated the spotlight of the event as Athelite and UFV Cascades have captured back to back championships in their respective Men’s and Women’s divisions.  Winning one championship is a challenge in itself, but defending that title not only once by twice is something that very few teams do, no matter what level of sport you play.  Will...

  Over the course of ten years, there have been three teams to lay claim to the Hoopfest BC Men’s championship (The School 6, Runnin’ Rebels 2) and as of August 17, 2014, Athelite can proudly join the list as repeat champions.  Not to be outdone, the UFV Cascades matched Athelite’s accomplishments by becoming back to back champions in the Women’s Division, setting a precedence for any challengers in the second decade of the Hoopfest BC Tournament.

The 9th Annual Hoopfest BC Tournament presented a changing of the guard (pun slightly intended) as for the first time in tournament history a team other than The School or Runnin’ Rebels was crowned Men’s Division Champion, while on the Women’s side the continued growth leads to promise for local female ballers down the road.  Over the course of August 17/18th, 8 men’s and 5 women’s teams from throughout the Lower Mainland filled the Langley Events Centre Field House for the largest Hoopfest BC field  in  tournament history.  While the on court action was not only a resounding success, this talented collection of players came together to raise $710 for Kidsport Langley through the GET BUCKETS program. MEN’S DIVISION Last year, Athelite suffered a two point loss to the Runnin’ Rebels in the tournament championship game.  This year they extracted...
