This is a statewide tournament. We are going to find the best coed 4 on 4 team in New Mexico! There will be four regional tournaments on four different weekends in June and July. Every team will play a six-game pool. The top 16 teams from each region will meet in Rio Rancho July 21-22 for a double-elimination tournament. A few teams might have to play a seventh game to pick the top 16 in their region.

Championship Round

The championship round will be held in Rio Rancho July 21-22. The top 16 teams from each region will play a double-elimination tournament to decide the state champion. Records in the regional rounds will determine seeding in the final round.

Registration Fees and Deadlines

Registration is $200 per team (plus tax). That's just $25 per player for six games guaranteed, and another two games guaranteed if you make the top 16.

The deadline for registration is midnight on the Thursday before your regional round starts. On-line registration and payment must be received by midnight. Paper registration forms must be received with payment on the same day (D.K. Hoopsters' address is printed on the form). These are the deadlines for each region:

Etc.

Teams are not required to wear formal uniforms, but jerseys and shorts need to match so it will be clear who is on a team. In the event that two teams playing each other have confusingly similar uniforms, D.K. Hoopsters will provide vests for one team. All players must be dressed appropriately for playing basketball and properly equipped for playing safely on an outdoor court.

All teams must send a team photo one month before the tournament start date. Team photos will be displayed on the D.K. Hoopsters web site. Company logos will be displayed with the photos, so every team is encouraged to provide a high-quality image of their logo that will display clearly on the web.
