This summer, Wilkinsburg is pleased to present HOOPS (Helping to Overcome Obstacles by Perserverance and Strength), a summer basketball league that is modeled after the Project CHUCK league in Homestead which is sponsored by the Best of the Batch Foundation.

The mission of Wilkinsburg HOOPS is to teach our youth important skills in order to help them become leaders and champions in life and our community. Games will be held in Hunter Park and is sponsored by Landmarks Community Capital Corporation, Tri-State Capital Bank and the Best of the Batch Foundation.

Registration events will be held on Saturdays, May 16, 23 and 30, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wilkinsburg Borough Building, 605 Ross Avenue. Youth should be residents of Wilkinsburg, between the ages of 7 and 18. Please bring copies of the child’s birth certificate, latest report card or progress report and proof of medical insurance at the time of registration.
HOOPS is also looking for volunteers to assist in running the program, with registration, being coaches, helping with fundraising so the program can become sustainable. If you would like to volunteer, call 412-867-5882.
