Bend Hoops will offer individuals the chance to play on competitive travel teams in the SPRING of each year. Teams will practice 14x and play in 4 out of town tournaments (playing 13 to 14 games). While winning is important, it is a process and the focus will be on the effort, not the results. Each individual selected will be challenged to expand their understanding of the game of basketball while being pushed to enhance their individual skill and physical development. Teams will typically practice 2 nights per week at Bend Hoops (part of what you pay for- is 14 practices) and each team play in 4 weekend tournaments throughout the Pacific NW (it is anticipated that two tournaments will not required an overnight stay and 2 tournaments will require a 1 night hotel stay). Kaya Crump is the basketball director for Bend Hoops and he will oversee every practice and will coach 1 or 2 teams.
** For out of town tournaments, the family is responsible for all of the child’s travel related costs such as gas, hotel, meals and any other expenses associated with out of town travel.
“Just wanted to say thanks for a great spring season. It was a lot of fun to watch the team at the tourneys and to see them continue to improve. I know speaking for my son that he had a great time and really enjoyed the practices and the games…he was sad to see it end.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for letting my son be a part of your group. He had a blast and learned so much in those 2 months! Please pass my appreciation on to the other coaches too. This is an awesome program!”
Playing at the Next Level...
Every year, thousands of high school basketball players across the country have the dream of playing college basketball. Unfortunately, that dream ends for many while the select few get the chance to play another four years. In April 2012, the NCAA released the following statistics for male and female basketball players and the chances of moving on to the Division I/II/III, Junior College, or NAIA level. For anyone that would like to consider playing college athletics, be sure to check out the NCAA Eligibility Center. Bottom Line: the odds of playing sports in college is minimal and the odds of being paid to play a college sport is even worse. Your best for capturing college money is to succeed in the classroom.
