Hoopsters Elite

Hoopsters Elite basketball provides the opportunity to play as a team in a competitive setting and also compete in a playoff tournament at the end of the season. Hoopsters Elite is for youth between 3rd and 8th grade. Registrants must provide proof of grade at time of registration. Games will be officiated by one certified official and one advanced trained staff official. This league is designed to provide the opportunity to run more advanced game plans, provide more advanced skill development and good sportsmanship in a competitive environment.
Players must already be on a team to register. Players must register as an individual and request your coach during the registration process. If you are not on a team and would like to register for Hoopsters Elite, please call the Pueblo Parks and Recreation office at 719-553-2790 to be placed on a waiting list. Being placed on a wait list does not guarantee you will be placed on a competitive team as coaches have control of their own rosters.
