Building a strong community bond is as important to Salem Sabres’ owner, Rhonda Alexander, as is forming an elite basketball squad. For the team's first season in the American Basketball Association, Rhonda recruited young players who shared her enthusiasm for the sport, but also a passion for helping others. Between practices and games against Pacific Northwest Division foes, Sabres players take time to host community events and volunteer at local schools, performing in anti-bullying skits, playing pickup games with the students, and giving kids expert tips on how to spell "horse" both on and off the court.
The Hoop’s sprawling 51,000 square feet house a universe of athleticism, rolling out six basketball courts, six volleyball courts, and a fitness center stocked with cardio and strength equipment. Thrilling tournaments and regional competitions take place at The Hoop, where up to 3,000 spectators can witness fast breaks, powerful serves, and mascots performing elaborate mating dances.
The Hoopla Hoop Camp is a basketball camp for kids between ages 7 and 14. During the day, players will hone offensive and defensive techniques, face off against one another on the court, and hear from a special guest speaker.
