On June 23rd, 2018, the world celebrated the greatest game on earth with Go Hoop Day - basketball's global holiday. All over the globe, people and organizations participated in Go Hoop Day by getting out and playing.

The Jump hosted the Toronto event at the Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre in downtown Toronto to build and amplify the basketball community in our city. While basketball is a sport that doesn't need more than a ball to play, an indoor facility comes as a luxury to some people and we were fortunate to partner with the #GoHoopDay team and Jordan Brand to bring that to life. The event was open to all ages and free of charge.
We started off with a private training session with Jelani of icanball.ca to take our influencers and ten of our followers through a professional elite-level basketball workout.
After that we opened up our doors to the public for an hour of open gym and games.
