Welcome to our 8th Annual Loren Larson Memorial Shoot-Out! Since the start of our tournament in 2011 we have continued to grow and hopefully are providing an atmosphere that will bring you back from year to year. It is our hope that we can build upon that success and continue to offer a first class tournament for your teams to compete in.

The Loren Larson Memorial Shoot-Out is being held in the honor and memory of Loren Larson, who was a long time basketball coach and Physical Education teacher in South Dakota and Gillette, WY for over 40 years. He had a passion for the game of basketball and a passion to share his love of the game with thousands of kids over the years. It wasn't just for the game itself, but the many different aspects within the game that are carried over into everyday life. Not only was it important to teach a controlled dribble or a proper jump shot, it was important that kids gave their best effort and learned to work hard and establish a good work ethic. Kids were expected to show respect for each other as well as the game itself, in both their attitudes and good sportsmanship. He spent countless hours in the gym, not to develop the next Larry Bird or Michael Jordan, but to teach kids the game of basketball, while at the same time teaching them about life. His family and friends would like to continue sharing his passion for basketball and his passion for youth for many years to come.

It is our hope that you have chosen to come play in this tournament because you share that same passion for the game of basketball and you are committed to displaying that passion in a hardworking, sportsmanlike manner. We promise to give our best effort in making this a successful basketball tournament for you and your team.

Best of luck and we thank you for your interest and participation in the Loren Larson Memorial Shoot-Out.

Sincerely,
The Family of Loren Larson
