Mychal Martinez
Owner of Hoop Academics

During his playing career, Mychal Martinez led The Meadows School (NV) to 4 straight state championships. At Yavapai Community College he started 40+ games. He finished his college career at top 25 ranked UNLV.

In 2012, Mychal co-founded Colorado Premier Basketball Club with his uncle, Keith Van Horn. As Director of Operations, he built several skills training programs from the ground up and managed their competitive boys travel teams.

Over the past 10 years, Mychal has helped Colorado's top players and programs improve their skills on the court. He's directly mentored 25+ athletes that have successfully made the jump to the college ranks.

Who can join?

Hoop Academics is divided into co-ed middle school and high school divisions. Our athletes are typically experienced players that are looking for a higher level of detail, accountability, and support in their skill development programming. While most of our members have goals of playing at the college level, it isn't a requirement to join.

Train in game-like settings

We offer up to 4 in-person group workouts per month - sometimes more. Sessions are 60 minutes long and include game-relevant skill work.

Training reviews

"I played in Qatar on a career-saving contract in 2016. I trained with Mychal in the offseason and averaged 20 and 10 the next year on a team in Finland and then made the 1st pro league in France."
