This year, Community Hoops is tentatively scheduled to begin on June 23 and culminate with its big Hoop-a-Thon fundraiser on Aug. 23, in which players shoot free throws to raise money and win prizes.
“It’s eight weeks, it’s succinct, it’s hopefully going to end before our college students go to college,” Petty said. “It’s going to start after everyone is out of school so it’s easier that way.”
