IndiWorld4 : What To Expect This Year at the IndiHoops’ Signature Event

IndiHoops – The Authority on Club Basketball and Team Rankings since 2012, has put all of its focus into 1 event. Welcome to IndiWorld. The 4th rendition [IndiWorld4] is June 28-30, 2019.

Champions and Legends are made here.  It has happened time and time again. As usual with us, we innovate every year.  Here is what is going on.

IndiWorld Circuit hits Dallas again this year.

  • The games will be played at Duncanville Field House.  Duncanville is a city just outside of Dallas. [Fly into DFW Airport].
  • The format will 48 teams and for the first time ever, will feature 7th grade division (tournament style) and a 6th grade division (tournament style).
  • IndiHoops announces that team rankings will go from 17u all the way down to 9u now.
  • We have released the 9u-14u rankings a few weeks back, they are included below.  The new rankings will drop June 6th, 2019.

IndiWorld is a Rite of Passage before HS.

The event will officially start June 28th, with the finals being June 30th followed by a closing awards ceremony.

The Experience Will Be Bigger & Better

IndiWorld4 will continue to push the culture forward of cutting edge technology covering youth basketball — simultaneously making a fun and experience that will last a lifetime.  We aim to outdo and improve on our leadership in this space, and operational excellence.

The new format/venue/location will allow for more teams to come compete as our network and rankings system have grown exponentially year after year.

The New Format

48 Teams. 3 Champions.

Going into year 4, we have gained valuable insight on what will make this event even better.  Last year we tested out a 7th grade preview division. The teams featured Team Griffin, Malcolm Thomas All Stars (Featuring: Mikey Williams and Elijah Fisher, 2 of the top players at the time in that class), San Antonio Hardwork and Drive Nation.

It was so much fun that we decided to expand the event to INCLUDE this division, with a 6th grade division.  This time, they play for keeps and a top ranking and championship.

15u will have a showcase division for the first time.

The Facility

Duncanville High School (EYBL Held Here in 2016)

IndiHoops – Flexes Its Muscle Again

IndiHoops continues its path on making the youth basketball experience and journey more enjoyable and organized through cutting edge technology and resources.  The IndiWorld in the past has been a time to “show off” the latest in technology and developments of our company.

More importantly, it is about providing the best platform for club basketball development, experience and advancement.

At the end of the day, we want a journey through IndiHoops, IndiWorld, IndiLockers, etc to be special, high quality, resource and something that a young player looks back with fond memories when they are older.

Scouts and Media Will Be In Attendence
