First Hoops® is a one-of-a-kind campaign that captures the emotional magic of one’s “first hoop” through inspiring photographs and videos of athletes, celebrities and everyday fans sharing their very personal memories from that special moment and time. These videos will resonate with an immediate emotional pull bringing viewers of all ages back to the memory of their own “first hoop™” and how they came to love the game of basketball.
 
Although the concept is sports based, it transcends the world of sports. First Hoops® tells the story of inspiration, sacrifice, family, motivation, hard work, determination and achievement touching the hearts of the entire family—kids, teens, mothers, fathers, grandparents—and eliciting those important core feelings.
