Lil Hoopers

Lil’ Hoopers is a unique, non-competitive youth development program for boys and girls ages 3 to 8 that uses basketball as a foundation. We provide a safe, learning environment while using fun, action-packed games that incorporate fundamental basketball skills such as dribbling, shooting, passing and catching.

Our innovative curriculum and dynamic coaches will have a positive impact on your child that goes far beyond the basketball court. Each class is carefully designed to enhance the social, emotional and physical development occurring at each age. In addition to building strong physical skills, we also build the self esteem and social skills necessary to be successful in life. Children in the Lil’ Hoopers program will have the chance to progress into more advanced classes as they learn and execute the understanding of the skills taught in the beginning classes.
