Hoop Education is the premier facilitator of year-round youth basketball and sports programs in the Washington, DC area. HoopEd runs programs for school downtime -- spring break, holidays, and summer - and also offers fundamental clinics, after school programs, and special events on a year-round basis.
We adhere to the philosophy that sports are played to have FUN, and that many of life's greatest lessons have been learned on playing fields and courts. The founder's passion and genuine love for sports, particularly basketball, is something kids have been responding to for more than a decade. While fun is always at the top of the agenda, learning and getting better are always the priority at HoopEd events.
