The Wells Fargo Advisors Shootout was created in Spring of 2017 with the end goal to bring quality High School Basketball back to the Cedar Rapids metro area.  The event began as a one day event and then interest blossomed and in our first year we had two full Saturdays booked.

January 13th and 20th of 2018 were the dates of the first two events.  Our event provides a very unique opportunity for High School student athletes, coaches and fans the chance to play in a large arena.  The US Cellular Center is hosting the event for the second straight year.

"We are very excited to host year two of the Wells Fargo Advisors Shootout.  We have 27 teams this year over two days to provide the fans with 14 great games of High School hoops.  

I want to make a special shout out to our title sponsor Wells Fargo Advisors and Ryan Koester.  Without them none of this would be possible.  As well as our Gold Sponsors Moden Woodmen (Doug Grenier), BSN Sports and World Trend Financial (Tory Meiborg).

We are also very excited to bring in Make-A-Wish Iowa this year.  Our team has put together a great program with the efforts to help fully fund a local child's wish.   We appreciate your help in making this work.  Every $5, $10 or $50+ donation to Make-A-Wish will help us reach our goal of $10,000 over the two weekends.

Thank you for attending the WFA Shootout, and we hope you enjoy your time.  Reach out to me personally if you have any questions, comments or concerns with anything during the event."
