Our Story

Halo Hoops was started in 2000 by Dave & Leslie Davies with the goal to provide high quality sports instruction to kids with positive role models, while encouraging them to play on a team with their friends. Dave and Leslie launched the activity as Halo Hoops Ministries, Inc.  The first camp was launched in Lawrenceville, GA. A year later, the camp expanded to Wilmington, NC and over the next few years, the Halo summer camp circuit included Tennessee, Oregon, Washington and Illinois. In 2004, the Davies family moved from a small town in Oregon to the beach community of Wilmington with plans to headquarter the organization and build a strong and consistent presence in the Wilmington area.  Once here in Wilmington, the activity of Halo Hoops became a ministry of Impact Church and that partnership continued until early 2015.  In 2015 Halo Sports, Inc. was started and continued the Halo Hoops activity, camps, clinics and leagues for kids 5-18.  Currently, the Halo Hoops Winter League is the most popular program in the Wilmington community with over 1900 players and 215 teams. As a sports ministry, we partner with like-minded people, churches and community organizations who help provide gym space, staff and service support for the many programs held throughout the year.
