The 2021 Midwest HoopFest has been cancelled. While Illinois updated its guidance and removed some of the COVID-19 mitigations that were in place, local authorities are interpreting the guidance to read that "tournaments" are not allowed. They will not allow teams from outside Illinois to participate in any type of competition, nor will they allow an Illinois team to participate if the team comes from a region that is not in Phase 4. Quite frankly, there are way too many hoops to jump through to hold a successful event. While we believe the rules are overly strict considering that all surrounding states are allowing events, we will continue to respect and follow them as best we can. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Refunds will AUTOMATICALLY be processed for registered teams and will take 3-10 business days to post to your credit/debit card. Please do NOT e-mail or call to request a refund, they are already in process.
We do intend to run our summer event as normal. Please visit www.NationalSummerClassic.com for information about our 6-game guarantee event that draws 300+ teams on average.
