In its fourth year, The Hustle Up Street Ball mission remains the same: bring the best street ball players in the world to your community, not only will the players entertain the audience with their skills and talents on the court, but they are known for devoting their time to every city they visit.  During stops in each city, the performers visit local schools and youth organizations, speak to the youth about the importance of education and avoiding drugs and gangs, award certificates to students with outstanding grades, distribute game tickets to the underprivileged, donate a portion of the door proceeds to the high school that hosted the event, and visit the local pediatric units to spend time with children.

The half-time show will feature a Slam Dunk exhibition and pre-expo warm-up using JUMPUSA's Jumpsoles so you can see how the players got their ups. 

There will be an autograph session held after the game.
