Tri-Lakes Shootout was created in 1998 by Todd Mercer. Originally called Reeds Spring Shootout, the first shootouts were located in the Reeds Spring/Branson area. In 2005, the name Tri-Lakes Shootout was created and shootouts have expanded to host events all throughout the state of Missouri including locations in Harrisonville, Excelsior Springs, Moberly, Jefferson City, Sedalia, Clinton, Springfield, Branson, Pacific, and many more. In 2009, Tri-Lakes Shootout hosted its first ever basketball coaching clinic.
In 2020, Tri-Lakes Shootout has started a new mission of focusing on growing the game of basketball and other athletic competitions with a vision of developing coaches, players, officials, spectators, and parents at all age levels including Youth, Junior High, High School, and College programs.
