Some of our most inspiring experiences are from bringing wildly different demographics together. When the barriers are broken, and you’re playing with someone who you might not interact with otherwise, it changes perspective.
Nick’sVehicles for change
Your community can help you achieve your dreams“The first court I played on was built by my mother, and I’ve been building courts, organizing leagues and events for almost three decades. I wanted a vehicle to bring people together around a shared love of basketball. We fundraised completely through GoFundMe–many friends felt the dream and made it possible!”
Connection matters“The Hoopbus brings change spiritually in people’s minds. The excitement that it creates is a fascinating thing. For most of the past year, we were the only hoop in town.”
Expand your crew“Some of our most inspiring experiences are from bringing wildly different demographics together. When the barriers are broken, and you’re playing with someone who you might not interact with otherwise, it changes perspective. I’ve seen people’s lives transformed.”
Bring people together“We’re looking to unite cultures. There’s great strength in learning from each other. A lot of our work is in underserved places where options are limited. The bond from basketball unites us. We’re only as strong as our diversity is.”
Reimagine your routine“Having an inclusive human interaction through sports, in a way that’s always changing, is more interesting than a gym routine, and we invite everyone in. We’re more community driven than competitively driven.”
