The Hardwood Invite (THI) began as a grassroots basketball concept to fill a necessary void taking place in the NW region. A highly competitive and nationally established basketball event, providing an opportunity for the best basketball programs in the region, showcased against top level national competition. We believe with the experience of the HoopSource Grassroots brand, powered with the support of the basketball community - The Hardwood Invite will continue to empower the athletes, it's programs, families, and fans for generations to come. Seattle, already with it's rich basketball tradition, will provide an exciting atmosphere for all who attend. Our goal is to provide a true one-of-a-kind basketball experience. This event will annually host top talent from around the country, with eyes from the most exclusive scouting and nationally recognized media outlets. It was time for the spotlight to shine on the Great Northwest Region – that time is NOW!
