Among the former New Hampton players expected to compete in the Chickasaw Hoops Club Alumni Tournament is Kyle Smith, who now plays college basketball at Central in Pella.

Hoops Club is ready to welcome back alumni

Aug. 19 Alumni Tournament will replace golf tournament as group’s fundraiser

    It wasn’t that the Chickasaw Hoops Club didn’t find its annual golf outing to be a fun, enjoyable or even a profitable fundraiser.
    But something was missing.
    “We honestly didn’t get a lot of former basketball players back,” said Hoops Club member Bruce Zwanziger. “We’d get a good turnout, but we were looking for a way to get former New Hampton basketball players back.”
    And the club thinks it has one: An alumni tournament that will be played on Aug. 19 at the high school gymnasium.
    The entry fee is $25 per player and includes a tournament t-shirt for those pre-registered by Aug. 1 and admission to the Pub at the Pinicon for an evening social that begins at 7 p.m. that Saturday night.
    For those who would like to attend the social, which is open to anyone in the community, the admission is $15.
And while the Hoops Club is hoping to attract former players, the tournament is open to all New Hampton High School graduates, regardless of age or basketball experience.

    More information on the event may be found in the July 25 Tribune.
