HoopImpact History

Founded in June 2013 in the hometown of the founder, Joppatowne, Maryland, HoopImpact Basketball clinic was a basketball camp for boys and girls age 8-17 standing on the principles of education, positive impact on the community and building skill in the sport of basketball. Today, HoopImpact Sports and Entertainment is still just that, and has also grown from a clinic to a lifestyle. Community outreach and involvement, service and philanthropic initiatives are now what define the organization. We encourage our clients and business partners to uplift a positive society.

The 2nd Annual HoopImpact Basketball Clinic will be held on June 22-26, 2015 at Joppatowne High School in Joppa, Maryland. If you are interested in registering your player, please visit our registration page.

About the Founder

Ryan Stokeling
Ryan Stokeling

Ryan M. Stokeling is the Founder and Executive Director of HoopImpact Sports and Entertainment. At the young age of 20 years old, Ryan turned his vision into reality. At an early age, Ryan took interest in basketball and quickly got involved with Joppatowne’s Park and Recreation Basketball travel team and Magnolia Middle School basketball team. In high school, Ryan continued to pursue his passion by joining the Junior Varsity basketball team at Joppatowne High School and later, the AAU Dream Team (Harford County). Ryan rounded out his high school career as a captain on the men’s varsity basketball team, where he exemplified sound leadership on and off the court prior to graduating in June of 2011. Continuing to pursue his passion in his collegiate studies, Ryan currently attends Neumann University (Class of 2015), and studies Sports Management. Ryan founded HoopImpact with one guiding principle in mind – to make a positive impact in the lives of those participants who attend the clinic on and off the court – setting them up to not only be successful at the game of basketball but the larger game of life.
