Port Hoops is a private club team and a feeder program for the Port Washington High School Basketball program. We are open to anyone who resides in the PWSSD or attends a PWSSD school looking to play basketball at a competitive level.
ENCOURAGE & PROMOTE youth basketball for boys & girls in the PWSSD.
Promote the strong desire to play basketball at a level beyond
the traditional rec league & school district basketball.
We stress fundamentals, teamwork, dedication & good sportsmanship in strong coordination with the systems & goals of the PWHS program, and we strive to hold those things above all else.
Our goal is to improve the skill level of each & every player by providing focused instruction in a competitive environment. We offer competitive team play for girls and boys in 3rd through 8th grade and a separate Skills and Development program.

There are no set dates that teams will practice on, the day of week and times for each practice will fluctuate based on gym availability.

Port Hoops offers a Skills & Development program to players in 1st through 4th grade (both Boys & Girls). The program consists of 10-12 practices where younger players will begin to learn the fundamentals of the game. Practices start in late November or early December. This program is a great way to get your player started with basketball. Skills and Development is also a great program if you are unsure your player is ready for 3rd or 4th grade team play.
We have lots of opportunities for parent involvement. Please contact your team's coach to see if they need any assistance. There are volunteer opportunities at any events and tournaments that we host. Watch your email or our facebook page for these opportunities or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more opportunities to volunteer.
Port Hoops will use a tiered refund approach depending on when the request is made. Our final uniform orders are due after the August registration period ends. League registration for the LBL and WYBL occurs in October. Once uniforms are ordered and league registration fees are paid, then a partial refund situation would occur.
