List of Hoop Tricks Articles (Chronological)


Did you know that The Spinsterz has been sharing videos and writing articles since 2009, known through the previous website,! All that time has buried the oldest articles and there are gems just waiting to be rediscovered! The Spinsterz are currently in the process of moving all articles from to this blog location at The Spinsterz. Until then, here they are, from newest to oldest. Happy digging!

(Note: this article will be a work in progress as I add the names/links of the articles. I will start at the oldest and work my way forward, so keep checking back. Once the article is caught up we will keep it updated!)
