Where does COMPETITION fit in with Hoopaholics.
A: We believe working hard and doing your best leads to the fun of succeeding together as a team. Fun can often have a lazy or care free attitude, but we perceive it as the enjoyment of the process of hard work and developing basketball and life skills. Competition within ourselves and our teammates fuels our desire to be the best player and team we can be - winning is just a byproduct of our work ethic and good habits built over time.
Who are the Coaches?
A: We are proud of all our coaches - qualified and experienced, but more importantly, care about their players and their success. Our coaches value the details of the game and work hard to build strong basketball habits in our players.
