Denver Hooperz is a Non Profit 501(c)3 certified competitive basketball organization looking to give inner-city At-Risk youth a knowledge base of academics, life skills and basketball fundamentals to take through school fully prepared and eager to be successful as a student-athlete.
Hooperz mission is to get our players exposure to solid youth program that instills confidence and maturity. Denver Hooperz exposes all the players to competitive competition locally and nationally. DHYO is dedicated to using basketball as a vehicle for our student-athlete’s to learn life lessons, self confidence, responsibility and accountability.
Denver Hooperz was started in 2005 to give inner-city At-Risk youth a better opportunity on becoming a great student-athlete. A lot of inner-city youth don’t have fundamental resources and exposure to the principles of commitment, focus and determination it takes to be a great student-athlete. Denver Hooperz focuses on helping these youth become aware of their potential and how to become a productive citizen(s) in their community.
Denver Hooperz is very proud it’s accomplishments 100% graduation rate and all 5 players of our first graduating class are on scholarships for basketball and football. All of the participants in the program must maintain at least a “2.5 GPA” average and maintain a strict “Code of Conduct” in their home, school and community.
