The RUH Youth Sports Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization independent of Rice University and the University of Houston, coached by student athletes and alumni from both universities. Our aim is to promote hard work and inspire learning in a safe, fun environment for boys and girls ages 8-16 yrs.

Teams compete in 5-on-5 and 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, including Hoop It Up, Hoopla 3 on 3, and more, all around Texas in cities including Houston, Galveston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio. Tryouts take place in mid-late February, and the season runs until late August with an awards ceremony each season.

Teams are formed based on the number of players that tryout for a particular age group. There are no coed teams. Team rosters consist of up to 15 players: 5 starters, 7 backups and 3 reserve players. For 5-on-5 there is a 12 player travel roster, and for 3-on-3 there is a 4 player travel roster, with a second 4 player travel roster at the coach's discretion. Reserve players may be developmental talent or talented players that can move up to the traveling (competing) roster by challenging a backup or starting player.

All team fees vary season to season and are nonrefundable, no exceptions.

To tryout for the team, make donations, or find further information, please contact Head Coach Sean Ramey (sramey@alumni.rice.edu).
