Alaska Hoops was founded in 2009 by Buddy Bailey with the purpose of helping progress basketball in Alaska. The goal and mission of Alaska Hoops is to help more young men and women of Alaska get their education paid for through the sport of basketball. We understand that basketball is a tool to help the youth of Alaska develop character, leadership skills, work ethic and moral awareness. Our intentions are to help more student athletes get to college and by extension have more successful lives.
Alaska Hoops offers many different opportunities for the youth of Alaska, including: Summer Camps, Clinics, One-on-One Workouts, Tournaments, Leagues and more!
