Coop’s Hoops

Coop’s Hoops was founded in 2014 to honor the memory of Cooper Stock, whose passion for basketball and enjoying life was unequaled. We are dedicated to providing scholarships for boys and girls, ages 7 to 17, to attend the Walt Frazier Summer Basketball Camp.

The week Cooper spent at the camp was one was of the best weeks of his life, according to him. In Cooper’s memory, it is our mission to provide a week of fun and learning for children who love basketball, regardless of their means.
