As we continue to expand our brand into basketball-related goods and services, we're looking to partner with individuals and/or organizations who are truly committed to the basketball lifestyle. If you're a trainer, tournament host, camp organizer or team, looking to be a part of the Hooplife® family, the first step in the affiliation / licensing process is to fill out an application and write an essay. The essay should contain information about your background, what the Hooplife® brand means to you, why you want to be a part of the Hooplife® family, and what you want to achieve by being Hooplife® brand affiliate. It doesn’t have to be long and/or formal, but it should be from the heart.
The next step is to educate yourself with our brand and become immersed in the basketball. As much as we would like to have everybody be a part of the Hooplife® family, we want those who are truly committed to the basketball lifestyle. This can happen in many ways. Send us your social media account(s)... preferably instagram. Follow us @thehooplifebrand. Post videos and/or photos to your Instagram. We want to see you in the gym, training, working, coaching, mentoring, talking to / mentoring kids, etc... share your experiences and tag us on in your content. Doing so, will allow us to see you in your element. We're not looking for the casual basketball fan or affiliate. We're looking for the serious basketball enthusiasts who LIVES basketball. If this sounds like you, then fill out the application.
