2016 Wild West Shootout Teams Announced

The 13th Annual Wild West Shootout is set for December 1-3, 2016 at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School. The Wild West Shootout brings together top high school basketball teams from throughout the West.

This year’s teams include:

“This is a great family event, celebrating high school basketball players from throughout the area,” said Dr. Tomas Hinojosa, Sierra Kids Foundation president. “But the best part is that it raises money to help children with autism, while also helping their families.”

Funds raised through the Wild West Shootout basketball tournament will go toward helping families with an autistic child attending the UNR Early Childhood Autism Program, which specializes in early intensive treatment for young children with autism. The program offers a comprehensive, individualized treatment program that emphasizes the child’s development in the areas of language, communication, socialization and personal behavior. With its connection to the University of Nevada, Reno, the program is also a training site for university students involved in the science and practice of treating these children.

All-tournament passes are $25 for adults and $15 for students, children seniors and military. Daily passes are $10 and $6.

The 2016 Wild West Shootout is made possible, in part, by the Reno Bighorns, Herb Santos Jr. Esq.; Holland & Hart and Sutton Law Center, among others.
