Our love for basketball can help
solve the global water crisis.

785 million people don’t have access to clean water.

Countless hours are spent getting water instead of learning, making a living, or playing sports like basketball.

    Ballin’ for buckets since 2018

    70,000 people served  |  10 clean water wells funded

    Hoops2O unites basketball players, coaches, and communities to raise awareness and educate supporters about the global clean water crisis. Our Hoops2O team knows that clean water access not only saves lives, but it also saves thousands of hours for those we serve. With the gift of time, kids can go to school, women can develop skills and earn income, and communities can sustain agriculture

    Hoops2O was founded in 2018 as the third program in the Waterboys family by five professional basketball players, known as the Starting 5.

    When we hit the hardwood in 2019 for our second season, University of Virginia’s men’s basketball coach Tony Bennett’s leadership expanded the Hoops2O footprint to basketball coaches at the college level who want to be game-changers and join the Waterboys mission of bringing clean water to 1 million people in need.

    To date, Hoops2O has provided clean water to over 70,000 by funding 10 clean water wells.

    One night of basketball…

    can rally your fans and community to join you in ensuring access to clean water for everyone – and you are the catalyst.

    Together as a team, Hoops2O coaches will increase clean water awareness and action through grassroots advocacy.
