HER TIME TO PLAY is an all girls basketball camp brought to you this summer by DPRD Athletics and Hooper Mentality Foundation.
HER TIME TO PLAY is a national initiative dedicated to championing change on behalf of girls and women and providing them with ways to connect, collaborate, and actively engage with one another through the game of basketball. The participants are taught skills on the court as well as take part in the curriculum, created in partnership with the Women's Sports Foundation which pairs on-court training with off-court life skills lessons to help:
  • BUILD girls’ confidence
  • EMPOWER them to face the challenges of adolescence
  • TEACH values like teamwork
Hooper Mentality Foundation is a nonprofit that provides mental health awareness to student-athletes through basketball camps, clinics and workshops around the United States and Mexico. Aside from mental skills training, Hooper Mentality hosts many initiatives that also teach life skills and leadership skills for young men and women. The founder, Coach Patty Medina, has 16 years of college coaching experience and a background in mental health. She and her coaches not only teach on court skills, but develop confidence and leadership in their participants. Hooper Mentality has partnered with the WNBA, Jr. NBA, and Her Time To Play to provide women empowerment sports camps to the young women in communities.
