The most skilled -- or in most cases -- the luckiest contestant to hit a long-range shot in a series of qualifying rounds could win amazing prizes from Toyota! It’s a fun way to participate even if you aren’t an elite player or a player at all. Contestants must be 18 years of age or older to participate. Just $10 for your chance at three shots. Good luck!
Rodda Paint Contest Zone

Contestants will be split up into three different age groups: Adult, High School, and Youth. Take your shot at winning some amazing prizes! Just $5 to participate.
Slam Dunk Competition
This one is fun for contestants and a show for fans! Watch as some of Hoopfest’s top athletes fly high to sink those exciting slam dunks at Nike Center Court.
