NESYB HOOPS is a youth basketball organization offering year-round basketball opportunities for boys and girls 1st-11th grade (7u-17u age groups).

For over 25 years, our mission has been to influence the lives of our area youth through the game of basketball. Using basketball as a tool to help develop positive members of today's society.

Our goal is overall youth development with an emphasis on academic excellence. We strongly believe in building a culture based around an outwork, outlast, and outplay mentality.

Through passionate leadership and mentorship we push our coaches to focus on team and player development through purposeful practice plans, building bonds and team/community chemistry.

 we aim to grow respectful, disciplined, fundamentally sound athletes who play & practice with great effort, have high basketball IQs, and possess the qualities needed to succeed in basketball and life off the court.

Outwork. Outlast. Outplay.
