"Hoops in the Hood More Than Just Basketball"

TWE's staff member Michael Tidmore and his fellow coaches have been working closely with our community youth to coach them up so that they will perform well at this important tournament. "We are more focused on how our youth will conduct themselves and show good sportsmanship at the tournament and not just working on playing basketball", says Michael Tidmore. Hoops in the Hoods is providing a peaceful setting for our youth, and they are responding in a very positive and productive way by showing up and being involved on a team, cooperating and working together as a group.

The Hoops in the Hood City-wide Championship is scheduled for August 23, 2014 at Seward Park, which is located at 375 W. Elm Street. Games will run from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Despite all the negative one hears about how our youth behave, these youth are a great example of "what good in Englewood looks like". Instead of just focusing on the basketball skills they are learning to become solid young men
