WHAT THE HYPE'S ALL ABOUT

Stacked with South Texas’ top talents from stunters and b-boys to tumblers and dancers, the Spurs Hype Squad is redefining “home-court advantage." Freestyle routines. On-court contests. You name it, we bring it. And when game night’s over, you can find us on the streets—spreading that same energy to the city we rep through community outreach and corporate appearances. ‘Cause when it comes to S.A, there’s never such a thing as too much Hype.
