| Annual

Hoops in the SunHoops in the Sun is an outdoor summer streetball league in the Bronx, NYC, running June through August.

The 2010 Hoops in the Sun tournament begins Saturday, June 12.

The Hoops in the Sun basketball league, which started in 2000, is played at the Orchard Beach basketball court in the Bronx. It's right near the water and is a beautiful setting.

The offical site reports: Hoops in the Sun was created by Rufino (Joe) Cruz, Sr., but was known to many as Joe "Pops" Cruz, and his two sons Joe Jr., and Randy in the Summer of 2000 as an 8-team Pro-Am Men's League for male adults age 18 years and older including current and former college standouts and professional basketball. In 2001, the program was expanded to include a Women's Pro-Am league for female adults age 18 years and older as well as a Youth Clinic in association with the New York City Parks & Recreation for children ages 7-12. Expanding the program has allowed Hoops in theSun to increase the overall participation within the community.

The offical site reports: In 2004, Hoops in the Sun expanded both the Men's League and Youth League Divisions from an 8-team league to a 10-team league. This allowed the influx of talent from all across the Tri-State Area to participate in the league. To date, teams from Chicago, Philadelphia, Albany, Westchester County and Rockland County.
