Starting this year we're shifting our CIT program to only be for kids who are entering 9th grade. We will also require that all CIT candidates submit a written essay that tells us why they want to be in the HoopEd CIT program. After receiving all of the written essays our leadership staff will make a final decision on who will be accepted into the CIT program.
HoopEd will only accept 10 CIT candidates for the entire summer.
We will accept essays until May 6th, 2016 for consideration to work camp this summer.
Other important information pertaining to this brand new program can be found below. Please feel free to call HoopEd Director of Operations Dave Bell at (301) 933-0398 (8:30am-5pm, M-F only) or email Dave with any questions you may have. We look forward to having a great summer this year!
