Hoops of Fire was conceptualized by sports enthusiasts at HLC International School. It is a one of a kind sporting event designed to encourage children to not just play but instil true values and spirit of sportsmanship, integrity, and respect for the sport.
Since its inception in 2015, the event has gained a lot of attention. From parents to elite coaches, the event has received praises for its core values and the concept behind its existence. School children are often taught to play a sport, but they are often also taught that it is ok to falsify their age or be selected without trials. Sports needn’t be this way. Children must be taught to deal with losses as much as they are encouraged to be successful. Teaching them that recognition at all cost is undoing not only to the sport, but more harmfully, the fabric of our society.
