Sixers Math Hoops & Coaching Café

Sixers Math Hoops

Sixers Math Hoops is an exciting, fast-paced, basketball-themed board game and curriculum that teaches students fundamental life skills such as sportsmanship, teamwork and problem-solving while also fostering their math literacy and appreciation skills. Students have the opportunity to “draft” their favorite Sixers and other NBA and WNBA players while improving not only their math skills and understanding of statistics, but also their ability to collaborate more effectively with their peers.

More than 1,500 students participate in Math Hoops across Philadelphia and Camden.

Coaching Café

An extension of Sixers Math Hoops is Coaching Café. Inspired by Michael Bloomberg’s Cities in Service program, this early-evening prevention/intervention program engages parents and caregivers in their child’s growth and development, while also strengthening community bonds.

The Coaching Café occurs bi-weekly and includes 30-60 minutes of physical activity conducted by Up2Us, 60 minutes of Sixers Math Hoops competition, all followed by a prepared meal that students, parents, caregivers, and teachers can all enjoy together.
