Parents of students in Grades K-8 are invited to join their children for lunch. In-N-Out orders for parents will be walk-up only on the day of the event for $12.00.

Thank You to our Sponsors!

Thank you to our neighbors and Hoop-A-Thon sponsors for underwriting the cost of the t-shirts and lunch, ensuring that all students will be able to participate:

Join Us!

  • Parents are welcome to join us in the Gym to cheer on their children as they show off their skills and self-confidence. Students are often nervous to dribble, run, and shoot in front of a crowd, and it means the world to them to receive encouragement and see smiling faces in the stands. Parents of students in Grades K-8 are also invited to join their children for lunch. View the class shooting and lunch schedule below.
  • Parents can shoot hoops, too! After each class/grade level is finished shooting, parents will be invited to participate in the Parent Shoot-Out ($20 per parent). The top male and female scorers will have their names etched onto our championship trophy. Secure your spot by signing up when you make a pledge in honor of your child at the link above.
  • Show off your skills in our Pop-A-Shot challenge ($5 per game). If you're quick and accurate, you could have your name etched onto our Pop-A-Shot Trophy!
