Hooping.org Magazine's Hooping Names Directory is our community service reference
point for those seeking to become hoop performers and/or open hooping
businesses. The goal is to prevent two hoopers, hoop businesses, or
hoop troupes from winding up with the same name. Such a list is based
on a precedent already set by the burlesque and roller derby communities which, like hooping, have also blown up in recent years.
While listing yourself in the Hooping Names Directory can't offer legal
protection, it's a community-based way for hoop performers to say, "Hi!
I'm here" and for new hoop lovers to see what's come before them. It's
our hope that you will honor our community by not choosing a name that
is the same, or even confusingly similar, to something that already
Please add your hooping name ALONG WITH THE WEB SITE LINK by leaving your information in the comment area below. The comment section is
located at the bottom of this page. If you do not have a hooping
related web site, a Facebook profile or MySpace page or such will
suffice. This info is needed so we can check to see if names are still
in use in the future and so someone can contact you should there ever
be a conflict. For more information on why this is needed, please see: Protecting Names, Identities and Trademarks.
If you are here for the first time and you see that a name you are using is already on the list contact that person directly and let them
know so the two of you can figure it out. That's what this list is for.
Thank you for taking part in helping to create a community where we can
all grow and prosper.
