MLK HOOPFEST SHOWCASE
The Shooting Straight Program (SSP) is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization that sponsors the MLK Hoopfest Showcase each January.
Our primary mission for this event is to provide educational scholarships to deserving high school seniors in the Washington, DC area in addition to providing once-in-a-lifetime athletic experiences for the participating student-athletes, coaches, and fans.
SSP’s initiative is to sponsor and promote a top flight national high school boys and girls basketball event whose primary mission is to empower children in under served communities by providing them the tools to obtain financial skills, life skills, and academic lessons that enhance their educational, health and social needs and improves their opportunity for personal success.
