Player Development Hoops

Player Development Hoops (PDH) focuses on developing and empowering young athletes both on and off the court. We are focused to not only make our young athletes better basketball players but to help them grow overall as young adults.

We will provide a challenging yet fun environment that allows our athletes to create lifelong friendships and basketball skills. We strive to teach our athletes the why’s behind the game of basketball helping them to get an edge on their opponents. It does not matter what level you are when you start with us with each player we will build on their strengths and improve their weaknesses. Through time, effort and commitment we believe our players will get better and have fun doing it.
