Phoenix has long been a popular destination for college basketball teams. The city and surrounding area offers breath-taking views, many things to do, and some of the warmest weather in the country over the Christmas break! Trip Sports is excited to bring an event to this attractive destination.
This event has suggested travel dates of Dec. 27th – Jan. 1st. However, you have the option to adjust the length of your stay or alter the actual travel dates. Sightseeing options for teams typically include a Phoenix Suns game, basketball games at Arizona State University, day tours to Sedona and the Grand Canyon, and possibly college football bowl games.
Each team receives two games in the event. The Arizona Shootout is open to men’s and women’s teams that compete in NCAA Div. III only. The competition site for the event is Scottsdale Community College (subject to change).
The official hotel for the Arizona Shootout is the Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options. In addition, the Metro Valley Light Rail is also within walking distance and allows participants to travel to Tempe in an inexpensive, quick, and safe manner.
