Empowering the Hoops Community with Tools to Navigate the Grassroots Journey

Grassroots Hoops Summit

Grassroots Hoops Summit, powered by USG, 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 will be hosted Sunday, February 26th, in Houston (TX) at Hilton Houston Post Oak. The one-day event will feature a number of informational sessions from 2:00 - 7:00 PM (lunch included), covering an extensive range of youth basketball topics and valuable insight from grassroots industry experts.

Inspired by our signature collection of USG sporting events and community initiatives, GHS23 is intended to celebrate 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, both in the near term and well after their playing days are done.

GHS23 is designed to give parents, trainers and club / high school coaches 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 must-attend hoops conference will be a perspective-altering experience that will forever change how the hoops community prepares for the long, challenging and exciting journey known as grassroots basketball.
