NSC Hoops will focus on bringing unique basketball event experiences to youth and adults in different parts of Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota in 2017.   One of the goals is to create two of the best international youth basketball tournaments and are inviting teams from Manitoba to consider joining.

They have two signature events this summer - NSC Basketball Cup which takes place July 28th - 30th and NSC 3x3 Basketball Cup which takes place August 4th - 6th.  Both events are open to international teams and will also feature many teams from across the US.

Event Highlights Include:
  • Outstanding facilities with adequate parking
  • Qualified referees and a professional event staff
  • Activities outside of play such as skills competitions, food and other Minnesota attractions
  • Individual and Team Awards
