Registration for the 23rd Annual Casper Youth Basketball Tournament has begun.  The deadline to sign up for the tournament is March 1st, 2013.

The City of Casper Recreation Division, along with the Community Recreation Foundation and the Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau are hosting the Casper Youth Basketball Tournament on Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17, 2013 at several locations throughout Casper.  The price to register is $150 per team. The team fee includes a 3-game guarantee, a free throw competition on Friday night, and free admission to a pool party on Saturday night at the Casper Aquatics Center. This enormous tournament typically features over 150 teams from Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Utah and Colorado.  All tournament games are officiated by NFHS registered officials.  The tournament is bracketed in a modified consolation format; therefore, all teams are guaranteed at least three games with most teams playing many more.
