Edgemont Travel Basketball Inc., d/b/a Edgemont Hoops, is a New York State nonprofit corporation. It is registered with the Charities Bureau of the New York State Office of the Attorney General and recognized as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service.
While Edgemont Hoops operated informally for many years, the program was established as a legal entity in 2019 by resident Jon Lewis. Edgemont Hoops is managed on a pro bono basis by Jon with assistance from other volunteer taxpayers residing in the Edgemont School District. As an Edgemont-focused community organization, we are eligible to use school district facilities (under the district’s building use policies) for our programs.
The core program of Edgemont Hoops is travel basketball teams for grades 4 through 8. We also offer 1-on-1 and small-group training, clinics, and open play/scrimmage programs throughout the year. The program’s overarching goal is to provide Edgemont children of all ages and levels of skill and interest the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of basketball.
All funds collected by the Edgemont Hoops legal entity, whether in the form of program fees or donations, are held in an entity-specific bank account and spent on basketball activities and equipment benefiting Edgemont youth. Our largest administrative expense is insurance, which the school district requires to utilize its gym facilities. Other major expenses are coaching and training fees, gym rentals, and equipment. All management and administrative labor of the Edgemont Hoops organization is performed on a volunteer basis by Edgemont residents.
Individual programs are priced to a) fund program-specific costs, b) recover program-wide expenses (e.g. insurance), and c) provide a reserve for equipment replacement, financial assistance, and contingencies.
Edgemont Hoops is separate from the Edgemont Recreation Corporation (ERC); however, the organizations work in close partnership to ensure our basketball programs are complementary and schedules do not conflict.
Edgemont Hoops receives no taxpayer-supported funding from either the Edgemont School District or the Town of Greenburgh.
