Advertise with Us

Online advertising is an excellent tool for gaining tremendous exposure to a highly motivated, targeted audience.

While spending thousands of dollars on billboard or magazine ads is a sure way to reach a large audience, the majority of people who see those ads have no interest in the product at all. 

Individuals who visit this website, on the other hand, are interested in a particular niche. Our readers come looking for helpful information relating to youth basketball, basketball skill development, coaching, and working with young kids.

They are more likely to click on relevant, well-placed ads they see here because they are searching for specific information, products, and services.

Compared to other ad forms, online advertising is quite affordable and offers a lot of "bang for the buck".

So why not put the power of the world-wide Web behind YOU to target profitable markets at a fraction of the cost?

About Youth Hoops 101 website

I started this website as a way to share my experience and passion as a basketball player and coach with other parents, coaches and players looking for helpful information relating to youth basketball of charge.

Maintaining a site of this size, however, isn't free, and I have realized that the only way to be able to keep it free for all of my visitors is to offer a few, high-quality,  well-chosen partners the opportunity to advertise on this site.

For my visitors, you will see that my goal is to provide sound information and recommend products that I have personally found helpful or that receive good recommendations from other users. I am selective with the ads I allow on this site and with the products I choose to promote.

For potential advertisers, the most successful ads on this site offer something of value to an audience that is interested in the broad niche of basketball and the more specific niche of coaching young people and improving basketball skills.
