Every SSNL Provincial Tournament includes some prize draws and give-aways and we wanted to make sure we honoured that during our virtual Hoopla Provincial. That’s why we’re introducing ‘My Hoopla Moment’.

Starting on Monday April 20th, we will be running the ‘My Hoopla Moment’ contest. Students have the opportunity to win an autographed, Carl English Molten basketball or some SSNL50 branded swag. Just as we would have done during the Provincial, we will draw for one autographed ball and a selection of SSNL swag from all the girls teams, and draw for a second autographed ball and a selection of SSNL swag from all the boys teams.

To enter, student-athletes must ‘mention’ @SchoolSportsNL in a 15 second Instagram-story where they state their name, their position, and their team. They must then name-drop the contest and follow it up with an impressive basket.

ie: Hey School Sports NL, My name is __________ and I’m a ________ for the ____________, and this is My Hoopla Moment! *Score impressive basket* @mention SchoolSportsNL

Understanding not everyone has a full-size basketball net at home, students can use whatever means they have to make the basket – paper ball in basket, sock in hamper, mini basketball in mini hoop, etc. Get those creative juices flowing!

All participants are also encouraged to challenge their teammates in their video.

How students win the prize:
Unlike the Fan Choice Bracket, My Hoopla Moment is not based on voting. Everyone from a Hoopla Qualified team who submits a video, has the same shot at winning one of the prizes.

When an individual shares their Instagram story and tags School Sports NL, we will repost the video to our own Instagram stories and add the player to our draw list.

Individuals can record their videos in advance, then upload them to their Instagram story at any point from Monday (April 20) to Thursday (April 23) of next week. We will draw for the prizes on Friday, April 24th!


  • This contest is only open to individuals on the 65 teams that were qualified for the SSNL Hoopla Provincial
  • Students will only be entered into the draw when they tag @SchoolSportsNL in their story (so we can track the entries) AND identify their team name (so we can confirm they qualify for the contest). **NOTICE: Students with private Instagram Accounts must send their video directly to School Sports NL’s Instagram messenger to qualify.**
  • By entering the contest you are giving SSNL the right to repost your video on our Instagram Stories & SSNL Varsity FB Stories
  • My Hoopla Moment is not a voting contest – all individuals who enter will have an equal chance to win the prizes.
  • This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram.
