2015 was a wildly successful season.  The first year of Shoreshots Pooley proved that the concept of bringing together top juniors in the tri-state area with a common goal can work.  Shoreshots competed in 9 tournaments with many players attending camps and clinics along the way.  The average player was able to be seen by 165 D1 programs over the course of the season, with many receiving more looks at the Hoop Group Elite summer camps.  Highlights included a trip to the Spring Jam Fest Final Four (including wins over Men With Vision, JB Hoops, Team Takeover, and NJ Got Game), a 4-1 showing at Summer Jam Fest, 14 Division 1 offers and counting, and a season of competition and exposure.

The Shoreshots played 38 games against teams from 11 different states, attended 5 NCAA live period tournaments, had 5 players garner Division 1 rankings from a variety of scouting services, and placed all 12 players with a Home for 2016-2017.  Competing in the Hoop Group Jam Fest Alliance Circuit the Shoreshots placed 6th out of 32 teams racking up over 30 HG Alliance Points. With the foundation set, the future looks very bright for the NJ Shoreshots.
