About Us

Steve Ripley of Carolina Hoops is excited about bringing tournaments, travel team leagues, camps, etc to both North and South Carolina under the umbrella of US Amateur Basketball.

I just retired after 45 years as an educator, basketball coach, and athletic director in Florida.  I also have over 30 years experience with running youth basketball events.  During those years I ran local, regional, and national events. I’ve been asked by the National Office to now run similar events in both the Carolinas.  So join me and be a part of the US Amateur Basketball Organization where things are “Run the Right Way for the Right Reasons” and those reasons are for the student athletes of the Carolina’s.
