Summer 2017 Tip-off

As tip-off approaches, we would like to take the opportunity to announce two new divisions: the Young Hoopers and the High School girls’ division. The Young Hoopers is a nine-week camp structured around 4 weeks of skills development and 5 weeks of organized play. Participants will get the opportunity to learn from our trained staff as well as guest professional athletes and compete just as the unlimited and HS divisions do.

Opening day is June 19th, 2017. The HS girl’s division will play its first game, Bingo Allstars vs Bronx Storms. The Unlimited division will see a rematch of last year’s championship game, 618 Squad vs Guard Up, the defending champions. You won’t want to miss this!
