LLhoops Tshirts….We tried, another first for LLhoops, to sell both boys and girls finals t’s. We sold a bunch at the finals games. We are now putting the shirts up on our shop– now we must include the shipping fees. There are limited sizes available for the boys’ t-shirts and most sizes for the girls. We might be doing a second run if we get interest. Special thanks goes to H&L Team Sales for designing and our top salesperson, Missy Atkinson of H&L.
We will also sell video replays of the boys and girls games on USB sticks or DVD formats- $15 includes the shipping.. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. We should have these up in our shop soon- via paypal.

Sponsors for LL finals…
Thanks to all our sponsors for the LL finals. With the help of these fine companies, we could hand out inserts for the programs at no costs (brackets and some rundown of the teams) and bring both girls and boys games at no costs to our followers. Design work by Dessie Jackson (dessiejackson.com). A special thanks to the LL refs for sponsoring the site- they will have clinics running in the spring for those interesting in joining the ranks. Their info will be under the Beats section of LLhoops- LL officials. Prestige Color Printing provided us with color inserts for the boys game -excellent service in a very timely manner- like last minute:) ..and last minute picts provided by Hosh Posh Photography.
