Video - What Is HoopLight?
How Many Hours Does Your Kid Stare At Their Smartphone?
Joe (Founder): HoopLight was created for my 21 younger cousins ranging from age 5-14.
During family get togethers, noise levels are high and attention spans are low.
I have some cousins that love basketball and some cousins that don't at all.
What I can tell you though is that they all love HoopLight™.
It gives the kids who love basketball an extra bit of flash in the driveway.
But more importantly!
It gives the kids that don't love basketball something active to get hyped on.
Get your kids unglued from their smartphones and into the driveway.
Whether they are playing alone or with friends, they will always have a ton of fun!
HoopLight™ is more fun than any video game out there!

HoopLight was founded in 2017 by basketball visionary and product designer Joseph Erlic. Upon finishing his varsity sports career, he was fraught with uncertainty. Sports had always been a part of his identity, so leaving that part of his life behind was not an option.
The only other thing that could possibly rival his attachment to sport, was his enjoyment of video games. One day while enjoying a nice game of Super Smash Brothers, the life-changing thought came to him - why can’t sports feel like video games? Now wouldn’t that be fun! And so HoopLight was born.
Joseph was later joined by co-founders and brothers - Jure Erlic, sales & marketing specialist, and Martin Erlic, web & app developing expert. Two other team members in mechanical electrical engineering as well as design currently support the founding team.
HoopLight’s headquarters are located in Victoria, BC, inside a garage next to a driveway basketball court where the team brainstorms, prototypes, manufactures and enjoys the game they love so much.
