Clutch Time Hoops

Clutch Time Hoops ™ (CTH) is a local Basketball Training Facility and Year Round Youth basketball Program based out of Albany, OR.

Founder of Clutch Time Hoops, Ryan Vargas, has been a basketball junkie all his life. He started playing ball as far back as he can remember. In high school, he was a 4 year letterman, and even went on to play a couple years at the collegiate level. Vargas has always enjoyed just being around the game and learning from everyone around him. Coaching the sport and developing basketball players has always been a dream of his, and he is excited to get the opportunity to turn this dream into a reality. Along with working for CTH, Vargas also works for Dutch Bros. Coffee Head Quarters based out of Grants Pass, Oregon. Ironically, his role with DB is to Coach DB franchisee's and help them do what it takes on the back end to maintain a healthy business. It's safe to say that this guy was meant to coach, and being able to coach the sport that he is most passionate about is truly a dream come true! Feel free to message Clutch Time Hoops on here and let them help you take your game to the next level!

Mission: To empower the youth in our community and provide an opportunity for every athlete to maximize their potential.

[11/08/19]   Life is awesome. Don’t forget to enjoy it! #HappyFriday

[11/06/19]   It’s crazy to think that our facility has been open for a year now. What a journey. When I first started CTH, my sole focus was obviously on basketball. I wanted to win. I wanted to be the best. And I wanted all my kids in the program to develop at a high level.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still competitive and I still love to win, however my love for winning now is simply because of the joy it brings the kids from all their hard work paying off. What a cool life lesson that is huh?

Fast forward to today, and for me basketball has become merely the platform that just gets them in the door. My eyes have been opened to a much bigger picture and it’s given me so much more purpose.

Watching kids improve their game is amazing don’t get me wrong, but the greatest gift I could ever give a kid that walks thru that door, is getting them to truly BELIEVE in themselves.

There is power in believing. Believing comes from within. When you believe in who you are, there is nothing outside of you that can shake u. There is nothing this world can offer u that you are not already overflowing with. We were all created for something so special and so unique designed specific to us.

Being great has nothing to do with whether or not a ball goes through a basket. Being great is a mindset.

Thank you to everyone who has loved and supported this journey we’re on, these kids are world changers!

Recently we began a new program here at CTH called Mighty Hoopers.

Our Mighty Hoopers program hosts' several basketball clinics throughout the year for kids of all different ages and all different learning disabilities. Our desire is to provide every kid an opportunity to be apart of a team and enjoy this game of basketball that we all love.

Currently we are on the search for any local businesses that would be interested in supporting this program, by becoming one of our presenting sponsors.

Cost to be a presenting sponsor: $500

What you get?

By becoming a presenting sponsor of Mighty Hoopers, you will get your very own business banner (3x5) up in our basketball training facility, as well as your business logo on the back of every Mighty Hoopers clinic t-shirt handed out throughout the year (as seen on picture)

What does your donation go to?

Your donation will go directly toward helping fund each event. It will assist in the purchasing of t-shirts, medals, prizes, equipment needed etc.

Sponsorships are good for one full year and are available for renewal.

If you know of anyone who might be interested, please feel free to send them our way!

[11/05/19]   We have a couple spots open on our 8th grade girls roster for this winter season.

If anyone knows of any girls who might be interested, send them our way!

Almost that time again! Come join our basketball family!

Life isn’t about striving for’s about becoming AWARE of the greatness that’s been inside of you the whole time.

It's almost that time again. Come join our CTH family!

BIG congrats to Jamie and Rita for winning our raffle drawing! They were both very thankful and very excited. S/O to Dutch Bros. Coffee of Albany Oregon for hooking them up with all the goods!
