Rivertown Hoops is HERE!

Play, Sponsor or Volunteer!

In March of 2019, the City of Petaluma voted to cancel the sale of fireworks by small community-based non-profits throughout Petaluma. For many of these non-profits, this was their only fundraising tool. The City came to Petaluma People Services Center (PPSC) and asked that we create a new fundraising event, with all the impacted nonprofits, to offset some of their fundraising loss.

Based on a basketball event out of Spokane, WA, called HoopFest, PPSC is launching Rivertown Hoops. After 31 years, Spokane is now bringing together over 6,000 teams, 3,000 volunteers and 225,000 visitors. We don’t expect to get that big right away, but we do expect Rivertown Hoops to become the premier streetball tournament in Northern California.

The first inaugural tournament will be held Saturday, September 24, 2022 at Petaluma Junior High School. We are expecting at least 88 teams this year. All non-profits who participate in the tournament will receive a portion of the profits.

We are now inviting sponsors, volunteers, food vendors and court monitors to join us in this exciting endeavor. Join us and be able to say you participated in the first year!
