Casper, Wyoming (January 3, 2019) –
The City of Casper Recreation Division, in conjunction with the Community Recreation Foundation and the Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, will host the 29th Annual Casper Youth Basketball Tournament for boys’ and girls’ 4th through 8th grade on Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17, 2019 at several locations throughout Casper.
The deadline to register a team is February 28, 2019. The team fee of $160 includes a 3-game guarantee, a free throw competition on Friday night, March 15, and admission to a pool party on Saturday night at the Casper Family Aquatic Center. This colossal tournament typically features 130 or more teams from Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Utah and Colorado. Proceeds generated from this event benefit the Community Recreation Foundation which provides scholarships for youth and seniors and free special events in the Casper area.
During the two day basketball extravaganza, hundreds of games will be played at gyms throughout Casper. The tournament is bracketed in a modified consolation format; therefore, many teams play more than their guaranteed three games. All games are officiated by experienced referees.
Discounted hotel room rates are available for those attending the tournament. The Ramkota Hotel & Convention Center is the 29th Annual Casper Youth Basketball Tournament host hotel; the hotel’s reservation number is 307-266-6000. For Casper area information and lodging go to www.casperwyoming.info
