Host an Event – School Assembly

Host a World Hoop Day Event in your town! 1st timers, Festival Hoopers, or School Assembly, we’ve got ideas for you.

SCHOOL ASSEMBLY School age children have enormous motivation to help the planet, and have fun while doing it.  This year’s WHD will be on a Sunday, and we encourage schools to have an assembly the Friday before to share our mission of keeping kids healthy.

Let’s get the hoop spinning (or the ball rolling). 1st you could ask your principal, then go to your school district office. Often they have funding for after-school programs or to get kids in shape programs. Buying hoops from a large supplier is economical and can be school property for decades to come. There are a few sources online for school gym supplies. Buying more hoops makes each hoop cost less.

You could recruit a few kids to make posters and signs for your walls and do you still do morning PAs? I remember that after the Pledge of Allegiance… to the Hoop of the USA. That is great way to announce World Hoop Day. Also, the PTA, as parents usually have the $, time and interest to help their school become a role-model school. Then, write the mayor, press, etc.  Invite a local hooper from’s list of hoopers near you to perform and teach tricks.

I think you could create quite an impact. You may not get all of the people to respond or come, but since we are in it for the health of our nation, to fight obesity, to fight boredom… (I’m not a big fighter, but these words seem to inspire people to do something.)  Time to hoop.
