The Bahamas Hoopfest is an NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Thanksgiving Classic that will be hosted November 27-30, 2019 on the island of New Providence in The Bahamas. This will be the first women's basketball event of it's kind to be hosted in The Bahamas' capital city of Nassau during a Thanksgiving weekend. Each participating program will play two counting games, enjoy some fun in the sun, and participate in our "GIRL POWER" Junkanoo Thanksgiving Celebration. We'd love for you to be a part of this amazing event for NCAA Division I Women's Basketball in Nassau, Bahamas.
Eight NCAA Division I women’s teams will be partnered with 800 elementary and middle school female students (grades 5 -8) from various Bahamian schools that will be identified. After the 8 women’s teams are identified, we will begin a campaign from July of 2019 through November 2019 where the teams and their partner schools will interact through a social media campaign on the Bahamas Hoopfest social media pages. Students will each be given different colored “Girl Power” shirts that represent their respective team partner. This campaign will also serve as a promotion leading up to the event.
On Thanksgiving night, November 28, we will have a Junkanoo Thanksgiving celebration for the teams at Kendal G.L. Isaacs (KGLI) Gymnasium. This event will take place from 5 - 7 p.m. This event will be open to the public.
