The mission of the HoopBus is to rebuild, empower, and amplify communities through basketball. It is a retrofitted school bus with hoops in the front and rear. The bus will leave City Hall at 11 AM on Saturday, April 16 and make its way through the City until it reaches Cadwalader Park.
The Spring Basketball League is set to begin the first week of May and runs through June 11, 2022. The Summer Basketball League runs from June 20 through September 1, 2022. Both leagues are free and for City residents ages 4 and up. We welcome the support of coaches and volunteers. Background checks will be conducted.
“We’ve developed a robust program and activity schedule for City youth and young adults beginning mid Spring through the fall,” said Mayor Gusciora. “These programs and activities are important to the physical and mental health of all our residents.”
