Hot Shots is a tremendous event that draws several thousand people to downtown Yakima over a two-day period. This is a great opportunity for your business to join the lineup of companies that make this event possible.

Reach out to local residents as well as out-of-town visitors who participate as players and spectators at Hot Shots.

Almost all sponsors get a free entry into Hot Shots and great visibility to sports fans with disposable income. In addition, your sponsorship participation supports a local non-profit organization.

To get more information on becoming a Hot Shots sponsor, contact Rich Austin at 509-573-3090 or email rich@visityakima.com.


The commitment and service of local volunteers is the key to sustaining Yakima Hot Shots. Join the group of people who make Hot Shots a great experience for everyone.

If you’re basketball savvy and can supervise a court or officiate youth games, you can take part in the festivities as a court monitor. A court monitor must be willing to learn the rules of Hot Shots and enforce them during the competition. Court monitors must agree to go through a brief training seminar. Court monitors will receive special event gear.

If being a court monitor isn’t what you are looking for opportunities exist with registration, souvenirs, results, set-up, tear down courts and other duties. You don’t have to be a basketball expert to help with Hot Shots.

There is a place for you on the Hot Shots event team. Please call the Yakima Valley Sports Commission at 509-573-3083.
