    Otwell Middle School is joining the fight against heart disease and stroke by hosting our annual Hoops for Heart event to raise money for the American Heart Association!  

    Details and Information:

    1. Students will form basketball teams of 4 players (to have 1 substitute) from your grade level to compete against other student teams.  No replacement players allowed.

    2.  In order to register a team you must fill out the form found HERE and gather donations for the American Heart Association.  To enter the tournament your team must donate a minimum of $40 to the American Heart Association.  However, there is an incentive for the more money you donate.  
    3.  For every $100 raised above the minimum amount, your team gets 1 extra point given during every game up to the semi-final round (Final 4).
    4.  Your team registration (completed form and donation) are due to a PE Coach by noon on Wednesday, February 12th.
    5.  The top fundraising team out of the entire school will win 4 pairs of Nike iD PG 3's (no matter how they finish in the tournament).  
    6.  It will be a double elimination tournament with the winning team taking home an American Heart Challenge prize pack.
    7.  If you are not entering a team, students can donate $3 at the door of the event and will be able to come to the gym to watch the games and have a chance to win raffle prizes.  You can also buy additional raffle tickets for $1 each for a better chance to win raffle prizes.  AND there’s more… during the Hoops for Heart time there will be a “Half Court Shoot Out” where the students that are in the gym can donate $1 per shot for a chance to win a REAL Otwell Bulldog basketball uniform!  
    8.  If you choose to not attend or participate in the event, you will go to a classroom and do an alternate activity. 

    Last year OMS raised $7118.80!  

    Our goal is to donate $10,000 and create a new school record!
