Our Story

Bend Hoops is the first dedicated basketball and training facility in Bend, Oregon, where anyone, but young people in particular, may come and find a pick-up game or a path to competitive ball.

Owners Kevin and Jenny Cox started thinking about opening a basketball gym when their son Carson was on his first basketball team and the team had difficulty finding gym space. While on the team they also discovered Bend had a lack of options for kids and their families who wanted quality coaches that understood how to teach basketball in a positive way that fosters self-esteem and confidence. These experiences led Kevin and Jenny to open Bend Hoops. Coaches and trainers make Bend Hoops more than just a gym with hoops. This is why Kevin and Jenny enlisted a former professional athlete and Division I college basketball coach, Byron Jenson, to run Bend Hoops.  Byron is the General Manager & Director of Basketball Operations.  He played professional basketball in Australia and was a Division I college basketball coach for seven years.

Bend Hoops provides a place where players of all ages can play basketball any time of the year.  Programs are offered year-round to boys and girls of all ages regardless of experience, including but not limited to individual and group training sessions, leagues, camps and travel teams.  In addition to the year-round basketball programs, Bend Hoops offers athletic development programs for athletes of all sports wanting to perform at a higher level for their respective teams and schools.

Come join us, play some ball and get fit.
