RAPID CITY - Sunday, Sacred Hoops Basketball set up shop at East Middle School in Rapid City, 67 youth from 11-17 years of age participated in what was billed as a tryout but was treated as more of a workout, focusing on strong fundamentals.

Sacred Hoops states that their goal is to teach the game of basketball, teach the game of life, we’re out to provide multiple opportunities for youth and those who work with youth in South Dakota and surrounding states. Sacred Hoops is dedicated to giving athletes the opportunities to play for highly competitive travel teams in tournaments that provide outstanding competition and working with individual athletes to help them improve on their needs.
