Entry deadlines for Big Sky State Games adult basketball, youth basketball and some shooting events are earlier than the official July 8 deadline shared by most Big Sky State Games sports.
The adult vasketball and the scholastic (youth) basketball deadline is Friday, June 21. The adult division consists of men’s and women’s open and elite divisions as well as men’s masters. The Scholastic tournament will feature girls and boys teams going into grades five through 12 (as of September 2013). Most teams will play July 20 and 21, but 5th-6th and 7th-8th can expect to play on July 19.
Shooting entries are due by June 30 for bullseye, bilhouette and muzzle loading events. All other shooting events and most State Games sports have a July 8 entry deadline.
The shooting competitions take place July 19- 21. Rifle pistol will be at the Yellowstone Rifle Club, Laurel Riverside City Park, and Billings Rod and Gun Club. The shotgun events are at Billings Trap Club, Blue Creek Sport Shooting Complex and the Billings Rod and Gun Club.
