More than basketball

Alley Hoops Jam® 3 on 3 Basketball tournament experience was created to help drive diversity and culture in local municipalities through the spirit of sports & entertainment, mental health & wellness, and small business support.  With Alley Hoops Jam® being more than just basketball as the anchor program, our development focuses on addressing health equity, digital equity and bridging the wealth gap.  The experience not only benefits our partners and participants, but also brings recognition to selected non-profit organizations and entrepreneurs that are making a difference in the lives of others.  

Alley Hoops Jam objective is to restore health and wealth in the community through a global market economy.  Whereas local underserved communities lack foreign direct investments, infrastructure support, Alley Hoops Jam strategic platform drives coordinated efforts to galvanize small businesses, aggregate data, bridge quality education, resources and economic stability with community service connection involving key stakeholders initiatives and workforce development opportunities.
