About

SIMPLE MISSION:
HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER PLAYER AND ENCOURAGE YOU TO LOVE PLAYING

We want to help you improve your skills, self-confidence, self-discipline, and work ethic. We want the privilege of helping you excel on and off the court. We work on developing skilled mentally tough players who are enthusiastic about getting better each time they step on the court.
Getting better is a choice.

CAMPS PHILOSOPHY ON HELPING YOU GET BETTER:
We create an optimal learning environment by building an atmosphere of enthusiasm and intensity. It is important for every player to challenge themselves to the fullest of their abilities. We celebrate the effort of getting better.

COACHES:
At Mass Hoop Academy coaches care and want to invest in your game.  We believe you excel when there is synergy between coach and player. The player has bought into the focus of the task at hand and accepts the challenge. Coaching requires the ability to teach, correct, and encourage.
We run drills that help elevate skill mastery.  You get better through repetition, verbalization, and intensity. We believe you have the capacity to become the best player you can be, regardless of what your beginning is. We believe in brief classroom learning, because everyone learns and absorbs information differently. We believe the best learning happens on the court.

LEADERSHIP:
We want to help you become a leader, who makes everyone around you better. We do team building activities to help players become confident in their voice and actions. In my years as a coach I have learned that the best teams had several individuals who were of strong character and had great leaderships skills.  These lessons do not only apply to basketball, but in life as well. Every team should be better because you are on it.

We believe in these three important steps:  1) Show up    2) Compete     3) Succeed
