We empower competitive youth basketball players to own their skills training

Develop your skills within a hybrid basketball training model that encourages autonomy while demanding accountability.
Why Hoop Academics

On average, youth basketball players meet with their trainer for 1 hour per week in a private setting. There's little to no decision-making involved and no accountability outside of their in-person sessions. It takes months to see translation into games because of the lack of relevance.

While individual training can breed confidence, it shouldn't be your main source of skill development.

We teach team-critical skills in a group setting while developing your individual skills remotely via our mobile training app. By combining the in-person connection with at-home accountability, you'll get the in-game results you want faster.

Who we train

Hoop Academics is divided into Middle School (13U-14U) and High School (15U-17U) divisions. Middle Schoolers should have 1+ years of competitive team experience. High Schoolers should have 3+ years of competitive team experience or JV/Varsity experience.

Where we train

The Courts Sports Complex, 11295 Washington St, Northglenn, Colorado 80233

What you get

Your membership guarantees 2 group workouts per month and 2 at-home workouts per week. We typically schedule 4-8 group sessions every month. You can attend as many workouts as you'd like at no extra cost.

Improve your skills at-home

Remote training started as a way to help our players stay active during COVID-19 shutdowns. Today, it fills the gap between in-person workouts.

"I started with Mychal in 2019. I was a good shooter, but lacked the skills to play DI. In 2 years, he gave me the tools I needed to play at the next level and also invested in me as a person. I consider him to be one of my greatest mentors."

"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."

"Mychal has worked with pro's, top collegiate talent, and prep stars but has also effectively worked with beginners. He's the best in the Rocky Mountain Region and is the first recommendation I make to anyone in Colorado."
