BNSW Hoopfest

The Basketball NSW Hoopfest is a development tournament that will be run by Basketball NSW. The Hoopfest will give elite junior players the opportunity to compete against the best athletes from NSW Country, NSW Metro and ACT. The tournament also allows coaches and athletes to gain experience in high-level tournament play, preparing for potential involvement in future state teams. This event will also serve as an integral part of the selection process for the U18 State team programs.
