About the event

"Hooping Helps" is a community intiative that leverages the beloved and therapeutic game of basketball as a tool to bring men and youth together from different backgrounds and neighborhoods to connect, bond, and build stronger networks. 

This space will also support open and brave discussions around issues impacting local communities such as gun-violence, mental health, employment, and fatherhood--and challenge the group come up with real-life solutions to help address them. 

Join us once a month for competetive and organized basketball and to meet and build with local hoopers, fitness professionals, entrprenuers, youth leaders, coaches, faith leaders, and community leaders who all want to see their communities heal, grow, unite, and prosper in the present and for generations to come. Bring your A-game, ideas, resources, networks, and let's build & ball!
