Hot Shots launched on Labor Day Weekend in 2003. Directed by the legendary Mel Moore, Yakima’s initial 3-on-3 street basketball tournament drew 217 teams. The first event was played on 20 courts spread throughout several downtown streets.

In 2004 and 2005, Hot Shots featured 24 courts and expanded to North 3rd Street next to Ron’s Coin & Books. Over 250 teams have played each of the last two years with nearly 1,000 players displaying their talents on the streets of downtown Yakima.

In 2005, Mel Moore stepped down as event director for Hot Shots. The Yakima Valley Sports Commission staff in partnership with a local organizing committee and Yakima Parks and Recreation, who handles registration, continue to operate Hot Shots. In 2010, a record 366 teams registered for Hot Shots.
