847 Hoops

We created 847 Hoops to provide quality basketball instruction to players in 7th & 8th grade. We strive to use basketball as a vehicle for bringing communities together and creating relationships between people of different races, colors, and socio-economic backgrounds. School district participation includes Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Zion, North Chicago, Grayslake, Warren, and Waukegan.

Our Mission is to offer free basketball clinics to young adults that focus on improving both basketball and life skills while enhancing their understanding of different cultures and socio-economic backgrounds.
