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.
The at-home component of our club was born during the COVID-19 outbreak to help players stay active. Today, it fills the gap between in-person workouts.

"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 is always striving to help those committed to getting better. We are grateful for his work with Ashten and for getting her ready for her first season at Stanford. It really paid off."
"Every workout I was pushed to my limit and often over my limit. I appreciated how much thought was put into every workout and how my personal goals were incorporated."
"Working with Mychal the past 6 years has taught me how to hold myself accountable and be more confident. He coaches in a strict, but passionate manner that's inspiring to players. He's a big reason I'm playing at Creighton."
"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."
"Mychal is the best trainer CO has to offer. He has taught me so much over 6 years and he's always willing to learn right along with me. I'm playing college basketball now and he's played a big role in my journey to the next level."
