Purple Fever Hoops is a highly competitive basketball organization that was established in 2019 as a 501(c)3 non-profit. Our basketball organization serves girls and boys in the West-Central area of Pennsylvania. In 2021, we plan on becoming a member of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).
Purple Fever Hoops is not a pay to play organization. It is our goal to put together single age-group competitive teams and teams will only be formed if this is possible. Our goal is to create a safe, family type of environment while fielding teams that are competitive on a national stage.
The Purple Fever Hoops #ICAN - Sideline Cancer Travel Basketball Organization is interested in serious basketball players who are dedicated to the sport and excelling at it. Our organization will provide premier coaching to all players, as well as also offers its teams the opportunity to compete against the highest level of competition. Our teams will challenge your child to become a stronger, more skilled, and tactically sound player. Player and Team development will be the number one priority of our organization.
Through the combination of practices, open gyms, clinics, and tournaments, your child will learn what it takes to become the best basketball player that he/she can be. Your child's ultimate success through this experience will be affected by their attitude and effort.
Our teams are coached by dedicated and highly qualified volunteer coaches. In order for the teams to maintain a high level of play and keep a competitive edge, we have also created specialized training opportunities with some local and national coaches/players. We will travel to various locations through the Mid-Atlantic Region to give our players the exposure and recognition that will hopefully guide them toward athletics in college.
We are also teaching our young men and women about the value of community service. Through our partnership with the Griffith Family Foundation/Sideline Cancer, the teams’ members will be given the opportunity to work on community service projects with the rest of the foundation’s members.
