    Of course any school can enter. In the past this tournament has drawn top teams from all over the Province! It is a classic!

    And yes they were both Catholic and Public Schools! Basketball

    I agree - this tournament has become a classic, and draws a great number of high calibre teams from across the province. With the draw being 24 teams, it definitely gives those hoping to 'rank' junior teams something to look at.

    It's too bad that three quality tournaments are all the same weekend this year: Hoop It Up, Henry Carr, and Notre Dame Welland. Hoop-It-Up has always been during this time slot but the other two used to be a little earlier in the month. I wonder why they moved?

    With fewer quality junior tournaments than senior ones, it must be frustrating for the coaches of top teams to have to choose between them when they conflict.

    I agree with you 100%. I can only speak for the Junior Crusader Classic. There was some discussion of arranging the tournament dates. We originally had selected either Nov 27-29 or Dec 4-6. GL Roberts wanted Nov 27-29 and MT wanted Dec 4-6. After discussion with other coaches, the only dates that were open for us was Dec 11-13. Once we had chosen that date and I had approval from the Principal, that was our date. However, the dates that were given for Hoop It Up (Dec 18-20) were incorrect and now we have a conflict. At that point, my hands were tied. I had no choice but to stick with Dec 11-13.

    I have apologized to Coach Morrone and I am sure he knows this conflict is not out of malice. However, next year I will select dates for the Junior Crusader Classic and the other tournaments can adjust. We have traditionally been the first tournament of the big three (Jr Crusader, MT, and Hoop It Up), and that always worked.

    I am hopeful that all three tournaments will field a strong line up of teams. This situation may give some new teams an opportunity to compete in a great tournament like Hoop It Up.

    Thanks for the kind comments and we are grateful of the success and recognition that many of you over the years have provided. I dont know about being a classic just yet but we do take great pride an providing a high caliber, classy and well run event! In the process the rewards have been tremendous over the years in many aspects! I think our numbers and interest always speaks for themselves and being the second largest only behind Xavier's Rimrocker for the past two years and providing some great shoe sqeaks and highlights has been a thrill for us. Despite the the conflicts this year we are happy and look forward to once again providing any team an exciting three days of Hoops and community building. We began this tournament with the intention of building community between our schools and the basketball community and our goal has been achieved over the past few years and I have no doubt it will continue. Hoop it Up does not have to have the top 24 teams from across to the GTA to be successful in our eyes and we are happy with the interest to-date we have never turned anyway away no matter what caliber. We currently have 14 teams confirmed and whether they are 1st place or last place teams in their respective leagues all have and always will be welcomed at Hoop it Up!

    Coach Melnik discussed the issues with conflicts and conflicts do arise there was some misunderstanding in summer at which point I dont usually think about Hoops at all! No malice or ill intentions taken from this Coach Melnik just conflicting dates due to miscommunication, but hey stuff happens. I guess we all move forward and look to provide great events.

    But here we are with 3 high quality tournaments ready to field great teams and create fun filled events.

    We all have alot to offer and we are not worried about competition. I am sure all three will be a great success and will help with the rankings for Rimrocker as well.

    Hoop it Up has been on this weekend since its inception and will continue to be on this weekend as it is has become an annual classic for our school communities, and hopefully Westview, as they have been a close partner and always willing and gracious host. As long as we provide memories and an oppourtunity for the kids to play then mission has been acomplished!

    Thanks to all for supporting Hoop it Up I would like to state the teams confirmed to-date.
