About Connecticut Hoops Coaches
Our Mission

We believe that basketball is a game of basic fundamentals. We feel that if the players develop their game under a fundamentally sound program the game will be easier for them and they will be way ahead of the competition. Our approach is driven by the idea of fundamental development mixed with pickup basketball. The concept is that pickup games done after fundamental exercises help establish the sound techniques in a open hoops environment. We also use video to help establish sound fundamental shooting and passing techniques. Most players have never seen their play on video in a teaching environment. We have developed quick video lessons that allow the player to find easy changes to enhance their ability.

We hope that you find our ideas sound and worth further review.
