Our Mission : Spreading God's Love Through Hoops and Clothing.

Everything Starts As a Seed

Hey there! My name is Giovanni Washington, founder of Chasing Hoops. Chasing Hoops is on a mission to spread God's word and love through the game of basketball and clothing. I've always had a passion for basketball. When I was younger, I had dreams of going to the NBA to play professional basketball, but God had other plans in store for me, considering he only blessed me to be 5'7, maybe 5'8 on a good day! 😅

Despite that, I still had an extreme love for the game. But after I realized I wasn't going to the league, I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. After college, I went home and pretty much lived the average life; going to work and hanging around. I went through a total identity crisis. I didn't know who I was and what I wanted to do, but I knew for certain I wanted to do something purposeful and that I didn't want to just live a life of going to work and that's it.

Little did I know, this was God trying to get my attention, and it was the beginning of a beautiful journey. I eventually got into making designs for clothing. I tried many different niches, but I really couldn't feel a connection with any of them, and so they all ended up failing, mainly because I was only chasing money. One day as I was just shooting basketball in my backyard, it hit me, and I knew it was God speaking to me because the words were so clear: Chasing Hoops. As soon as I heard it from God, that same day I went to create social media accounts and emails with the name. I was going to make sure that I would never forget it. It was a seed that God planted in me, and that was the beginning.

Gametime!

Now before Chasing Hoops got put into play, I was still working my regular full-time job of 4 years, and I just came off another clothing business failure, so I wasn't really motivated to get back into the game. At this point in life, I gave up on my dreams of doing something purposeful. All I did was work, and eventually, I got so depressed and tired of feeling trapped, that I quit my job and tried to go into high-ticket sales. Again, I was on a money chase and ended up failing in that venture as well. I finally had enough of trying to do things that I had no passion for and said, "Forget it! It's time to start Chasing Hoops!". I dropped everything and went all-in on it. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with the brand, but I knew I wouldn't quit this business because my passion was tied to it, and the thought of impacting lives through the game I loved was something I couldn't let go. I knew God had his hands on this one! It was GAMETIME!

A Glorious Turnaround!

Chasing Hoops started with no real direction. I tried many different things, but none really made a connection. It had gotten to a point where I almost gave up on the brand as a whole because I just couldn't figure it out, but still, God was telling me to keep going. Eventually, I realized that what God was wanting me to do is point athletes towards Him. Once I started to put His plan into play and not my own, the brand started to grow fast, and we finally started to have a clear direction for the Chasing Hoops brand. Now, our content and clothing designs are centered around Christianity; every design represents our Lord and Savior. We share God's word daily on all of our social media accounts, spreading love to God's children. The brand is called Chasing Hoops because of basketball, but it's really about chasing God! God gets all of the glory for everything that Chasing Hoops has done and will do in the future. We are so grateful for everyone that has come in contact with the brand and beyond grateful for everything that God has done. Chasing Hoops would not be here today without the hand of God over it. All praises to the Most High!"
