We're Back on August 19th!
Join us on 8/19/23 at the Roxbury YMCA for #HoopHop2023!
Our Ninth Annual Tournament! Follow @hoophop617 for more info.
See You There!
The purpose of the annual Hoop Hop Basketball Tournament is to create a space for local artists, community activists and grassroots entrepreneurs to simultaneously showcase talents and positively impact the greater Boston metropolitan community, primarily the youth. Teams are comprised of members of the Greater Boston music community (singers, rappers, producers, promoters, etc.).
By combining the twin energies of art and sport, the Hoop Hop movement is firmly anchored in the belief that true community empowerment must be both active and creative. Furthermore, by raising funds to provide opportunities for inner city youth, Hoop Hop aims to foster an environment that promotes growth and encourages those with musical talent to follow that path. With a fun day of activities including exciting b-ball moves, a community awareness resource fair, local artisan’s marketplace and live entertainment, Bakari J.B. and the Hoop Hop team have crafted one of Boston’s premier events.
Hoop Hop is a FREE event and relies on sponsorships and/or donations. You can support our efforts by clicking the PayPal link below. See you on the court!
