Part of what makes Hoops 360 different than most other basketball programs is our coaches. All of our programs are delivered by professional and trained coaches. We have a strong player development philosophy and curriculum that has been developed over the past decade training thousands of players. Our coaches are instructed in that philosophy and held to high standards in the delivery of our programs.
Hoops 360 is a USA Basketball Certified youth organization. In addition to our own training program for coaches, new Hoops 360 coaches also complete the USA Basketball coaches certification program.
