Basketball lovers of all ages and skill levels will take it to the net during the Fourth of July weekend at the first ever Lanai Shootout. Held at the community outdoor basketball courts, the three day shootout is a benefit basketball tournament hosted by the Lanai Ballers to support Lanai girls basketball for grades 6-12.

Proceeds will help cover next season’s travel costs, including participation in the Rainbow Warrior Basketball Camp held each year at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

How to Participate in the Lanai Shootout
