"My students were keeping me on schedule. A day didn't go by without them asking “Are we playing Math Hoops today?” It was a great feeling to know that they were excited about math."

Educator Survey Response

"I have the best video of one of my students yelling and excited at the local competition. When I looked closely I realized she was cheering for the other team. It was great to see her excited about them doing well and she had never met them or played with them before. What a great lesson on sportsmanship."

Educator Survey Response

"My students and I have been excited about math in a way I have not experienced in a long time because of Math Hoops. I have seen a shift in the students’ fluency and confidence. Their sportsmanship expectations for each other have been so high that I don’t need to interfere – the teams take care of things themselves."

Joy, Philadelphia School District

"Math Hoops is a fantastic program on so many levels. The weekly lessons encourage club members to embody good character, good sportsmanship, and to show integrity. The kids who participate are challenged, show confidence in their math skills and support each other during their games. It creates a great atmosphere of healthy competition while they hone their individual skills. Thank you so much for introducing this program to our Club."

Alicia, Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains

"One of my female ELL students, coming into third grade, struggled with addition concepts and automaticity. However, once she engaged in the competition piece of Math Hoops, she began practicing her addition, subtraction and multiplication facts every chance she got. By the end of our season, she was the top multiplication student in class and her confidence had grown tremendously."

Educator Survey Response

"I have a group of 7th grade boys that were super disengaged with learning, but after going over the Math Hoops program with them and sharing all of the cool experiences that they get to participate in, those boys decided to dedicate themselves to training for the regional tournament and prepare vigorously so that they would have a better chance of winning. It changed their outlook about math and school and made them want to play."

Educator Survey Response

"Coaches were amazed by Learn Fresh’s responsiveness, the hands-on and engaging training, and the personalized attention. They felt that Learn Fresh was attentive to their needs and went above and beyond to eliminate barriers and help them and their students."

WestEd Program Evaluation

"This was my first year using the NBA Math hoops so we used it in a lot of locations and with a variety of students. I run a tutoring business that partners with a lot of organizations and schools and we basically used it whenever and wherever we could because the students (and adults) loved it so much. I've never seen kids so enthusiastic and engaged with math."

Billy, Philly Tutors

"The Math Hoops program was an incredible success within our club. Overall, the program taught our kids about teamwork, sportsmanship, and critical thinking. I have definitely seen a positive response for when the kids and I do other physical activities in the gym. Math Hoops has ignited that “carry over” into our other sports activities and kids are responding with more sportsmanship and teamwork than ever. We loved Math Hoops and can't wait to be a part of it next year!"

Shea, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Peoria

"The program has made math fun for our kids. Kids that didn’t really like math in the beginning now have a different outlook on it. Math Hoops has been very beneficial for us. It has actually improved grades for some."

James, Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama
