Brooklyn’s Love Letter to Basketball
The biggest basketball city in the world will be celebrating the game and the lifestyle that it helped foster.
Brooklyn Hoops Fest will feature NBA All-Star weekend competitions like a Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest, and a Dunk Contest each with their own $1000 prize to coronate our newly renovated basketball courts. Spots are limited for each event and are expected to fill up quickly.
Alongside the contests, Hoops Fest will bolster a trade show with over 40 brands, vendors, curators, and collector tables in partnership with The Sneaker Exit.
Buy, sell, trade, and be the first to hear about what’s hot in the street-wear and sneaker industry.
General admission to Hoops Fest includes spectating the competitions, access to our trade-show, and full entry into our new video game loft above our arcade.
An NBA staple that invites players to use their ball-handling, passing, and shooting abilities to complete the course as quickly as possible within the time frame of a minute and a half (1:30).
The players will start with making a layup, dribble between five obstacles, make a pass into an upright hoop, dribble back full-court, and then make a 3-point shot from the top of the key.
The first round will hold up to (50) participants, the second round only (10) competitors will advance, and the final round decided between two players.
Tiebreakers will be decided with an additional round for the players that tied.
The winner of the Skills Challenge will be awarded the $1000 cash prize. Second place will receive four free open basketball sessions at Aviator Sports that can be redeemed anytime.
