The Mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to enable all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

 

“One of the most difficult things for us to do is to get every single child involved. No matter what their age or skill level is, getting them all involved and getting them involved together,” said Alicia Hodge. In June, 360 Hoops had the opportunity to partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida to facilitate an engaging hour long program for their Sanford location. With nearly 100 kids in attendance, you would think the task would be difficult. However, to the surprise of all of the Boys & Girls Club staff, our hoop was able to provide an engaging environment filled with drills, games, and competition for all of the children in attendance. After seeing our hoop in action Alicia said, “my club director asked me IMMEDIATELY how he can get one for his club.”

This is why we are partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida to begin raising funds to put a 360 Hoop in every one of their 16 club facilities. But we don’t want to stop there, 360 Hoops wants to help put one of our hoops in every Boys & Girls Club in the state of Florida and then expand nationwide. After seeing the limited time these kids have to participate in character building and wellness activities, there is no doubt in our mind that our hoop is needed in every Boys & Girls Club in the nation. But don’t take our word for it, watch our story video on this endeavor below.

Every basket donated will be custom branded with the name/logo of the person or business donating it. If you have the heart and desire to help the Boys & Girls Club engage, develop, and nurture children to achieve a high level of success on and off the court, we strongly encourage you to contact us today!
