HOOPQUEENS was founded in 2020 and aims to use basketball to change the narrative of women in the sport. Support from the Community Empowerment Program will go towards programming that provides 500 girls and young women ages 4-25 with on-and-off the court skills and knowledge. They will learn how to have fun; be part of a sisterhood; work through obstacles; take care of nutritional, hygiene and mental health needs; plan for their future; contribute to their communities; and of course, play basketball.
