The Hoop School is a skills development academy designed for junior players aged 5 to 18 year olds who show a strong inclination towards basketball and who are eager to learn, develop and implement several often-overlooked aspects of the game (eg footwork, decision-making, passing, conditioning, defence and more).

Every Hoop School program follows a clear progression chart relevant to the age and abilities of its participants.

The Hoop School will:

  • help committed players learn and develop fundamental basketball techniques and skills (e.g. how to shoot, pass and dribble better)
  • correct and adjust bad habits (ie how to unlearn in order to learn better)
  • develop basketball IQ (ie – how to make better and faster decisions)
  • introduce basketball-specific conditioning (eg how to run faster, jump higher, increase physical strength)
  • increase awareness of early functional movement (ie how to move more efficiently on the basketball court)
  • put a strong emphasis on defensive concepts (ie effective man to man defence, rebounding, team defence)
  • teach how to work as a team (ie where to go on the court, what to do when not in possession of the ball, spacing, how to communicate efficiently, etc),
  • encourage and teach effort and resilience (ie not being afraid of making mistakes, not quitting or giving up, getting up if we fall, etc)
  • help create basketball communities by bringing together players from different origins, gender and schools.
  • emphasise that the skills acquired during basketball practice are transferable to life off-court: school, family life, interaction with peers, etc

The Hoop School will not:

  • provide a child-minding program. Every student should attend only because he or she genuinely enjoys basketball and is keen to learn and improve.
  • tolerate any display of verbal or physical violence between students or towards coaches.
