Coming Back to the Hoop, an award winning new documentary produced by Jane Pittman, a local filmmaker and NOVA United member and Wednesday Night Basketball player, is now available for purchase (dvd or digital download).

Coming Back to the Hoop is about Jane Pittman, a promising basketball star at her small town high school who ran off the court never to return...until now.  Forty years later, she is determined to play competitive ball again.  What she never expected to find on this journey is a passionate group of women that came together for much more than sports.  

"Poignant, amusing, endearing, inspiring; I spent the whole film laughing and crying."
