Education Beyond           the Court



Hoops Academy is an organization based in Denver, CO with the mission of "education beyond the court." Our goal is to graduate student athletes who go on to career fields beyond athletics. Our success is not based on how many college or pro basketball players that we produce. Our success is based on how many successful young men and women we produce beyond the court.
