Hoopin' Around The Clock is a unique 24-hour fundraiser started in 2016 as a means for us to give back to our community. Teams from all areas of our community - school and club teams along with businesses, community organizations, and groups of friends - come together to compete against one another in modified versions of a basketball game in the spirit of fun, community, and charity.
We've been fortunate to see the number of participants increase each year. Most recently, at our 4th Annual event in January 2019, we hosted 825 people representing 72 teams.
We've featured teams from the Town of Kingsville, the Ontario Provincial Police and Windsor Police Services, HUB, Century 21 Real Estate, PEPSICO, and Windsor Family Credit Union. Of special note is the opportunity for each of the past 3 years to host the St. Clair College Women's and Men's basketball teams as they competed in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association league competition.
Most importantly, we've all come together each year to raise funds in support of local organizations and the efforts in our community. To date we have raised $157,000.
Hoopin' Around The Clock would not be possible without the generous support of our community. We're fortunate to have many local businesses who believe in our efforts and, like us, are willing to give back to the community. Their interest and support have helped build the foundation that has allowed this event to grow so significantly in such a short period of time.

Hoopin' Around The Clock is about bringing people together in the spirit of fun, community, and charity. As such, it doesn't matter whether you've never played basketball before or if you've played competitively your entire life. Get together with your friends or colleagues, challenge someone to a game, and come join us on the court as we raise funds in support of local organizations and their efforts in our community.
To date, we've hosted teams representing Century 21 Real Estate, HUB, Ontario Provincial Police, the Towns of Kingsville and Leamington, Windsor Family Credit Union, and Windsor Police Services, among many others. Of special note has been the opportunity to host the St. Clair Saints Women's and Men's basketball teams as they've taken on opponents in OCAA league competition since 2017.
