Welcome to Awesome Hoops!

Hey there, my name is Fred. My first experience with basketball was when I was eight years old. My mom enrolled me in a summer camp. I can vividly remember my joy when I finally learned how to shift direction while dribbling. The scrimmages were so fun and I made so many friends!

My mom then enrolled me in the camp for five consecutive summers! I have since been hooked with basketball and have joined numerous tournaments. I have also organized a basketball league.

One of the highlights of my basketball life is watching the NBA Eastern Conference finals live in Cleveland. The energy in Quicken Loans Arena was electrifying. Here’s a photo I took before the tip-off.
