This summer, the iYes Foundation will be hosting their Summer Hoopfest, available to children in Grades 3-6. The Kids Summer Hoopfest is a competitive summer basketball hoops series taking place in Springdale, Arkansas and is an affordable opportunity for parents in the NWA area that are looking to keep their kids active for the summer.

At the Kids Summer Hoopfest, the participants have the option to compete during any available weekend that they so choose, with the total cost for competing in all 5 weekends being $450 per team. In the competition, the teams are guaranteed a minimum of two competitive games each Saturday followed by an end of the summer tournament scheduled for August 7th.

The Hoopfest will be taking place June 5th, June 19th, July 10th, July 24th, and August 7th at the Springdale Recreation Center.

The iYes Foundation, founded by Dr. Simeon and Stephanie Hinsey in May 2016, “is a Springdale, Arkansas based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the youth of Northwest Arkansas discover their passions and grow their world view through education and sports”. With a reputable history in the worlds of education and sport, the Hinsey’s are bringing their experience to their native communities through both iYes NWA and iYes Bahamas.
