Houston, TX (February 2024) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Electrolit – the preferred, premium hydration beverage made from pharmaceutical quality grade ingredients – is joining forces with Local Hoops to support nonprofit Hoopbus’ fifth annual Show Love series that brings together the global basketball community and local hoopers and organizations driving basketball energy in the All-Star host city: Show Indy Love.
During basketball’s biggest annual event in Indianapolis between February 15 – 17, the trio will unveil the renovated basketball court and popup at Woodruff Place Baptist Church, where they will host a dunk show with Electrolit athlete and viral basketball prodigy Tristan Jass, as well as Chris Staples, Elvin Rodriguez, Amir Smith and Smoove (Dmytro Kryvenko). A celebrity All-Star game with Jaime Jaquez, also an Electrolit athlete, will follow.
“At Electrolit, we believe in the power of community and are thrilled to partner with Hoopbus and Local Hoops to bring these exciting basketball events to the Woodruff Place Baptist Church,” said Jake Sloan, Electrolit USA’s Sr. Marketing Director. “Through this collaboration, we aim to not only provide fun and engaging activities for the community with the helping hand of our basketball athletes, Jaime Jaquez and Tristan Jass, but also to provide long-lasting resources and infrastructure to cultivate local talent.”
Following the inauguration of the new court at Woodruff Place Baptist Church, which hosts youth for weekly basketball runs and a student-led band, youth skills clinics, club runs, yoga sessions and more are programmed to take place over the three-day popup.
Hoopbus Founder, Nick Ansom, adds: “We’re excited to have Electrolit on board for this initiative as we use our hoop buses as a vehicle to drive positive change. Their commitment to supporting community initiatives aligns perfectly with our mission as we prepare to be immersed in Indianapolis’ basketball scene. Together with Electrolit and Local Hoops, we’re looking forward to creating memorable experiences for the community and inspiring the next generation of basketball players.”
