Donate to Coats for the Cold

Coats for cold drop off boxCoats for the Cold is a local drive to collect warm coats and jackets for our community.

Last year’s coat drive was our largest yet! We collected over 500 now coals and over 4,000 gently used coats that were laundered by Mission Linen and given to local children and adults in need. The number of donations shows what a caring community we share.

With temperatures dropping, the need for coats is as great as ever. This year we respectfully ask you to continue your support for Coats for the Cold in any way possible. Your effort truly makes a difference for our community.

2020 Hoopsters Team Assignment Change

We are changing our team assignment process this season.

This season, coaches will draft their own teams instead of our staff putting the teams together.  Due to this we are going to have to rearrange some of the times for the drills during team assignments to allow for a coaches meeting to explain the draft to them and then to also draft their teams.

This will not affect the boys from the 3rd-8th grade divisions as their times will stay the same however it will affect:

  • All the 3-4 grade girls
  • 5-6 grade girls
  • 9-12 grade coed participants

Below are the revised team assignment times.
