Empowering the Hoops Community with Tools to Navigate the Grassroots Journey

Grassroots Hoops Summit

Grassroots Hoops Summit, powered by USE, was birthed with the objective of equipping student-athletes with the knowledge to navigate grassroots athletics on an elite level. This first-of-its-kind hoops conference was hosted in Houston (TX) at Hilton Houston Post Oak. The one-day event featured a number of informational sessions covering an extensive range of youth basketball topics and valuable insight from grassroots industry experts. Inspired by our signature collection of USE sporting events and community initiatives, Grassroots Hoops Summit celebrated the value and impact of grassroots basketball, while also equipping the hoops community with the tools and resources necessary to maximize the experiences and outcomes for student-athletes now and after their playing days are done.

Grassroots Hoops Summit provided parents, trainers and club / high school coaches with the information needed to guide their student-athletes in the areas of college preparation, navigating the recruiting process, player development, NIL, mental health and more. This premier hoops conference was a perspective-altering experience that will forever change how the hoops community prepares for the long, challenging and exciting journey known as grassroots basketball.
