HHA Fall/Winter Team Information

Fall/Winter 2017/2018

The HHA select basketball teams will consist of players from around Omaha and surrounding areas and states. This fall/winter the academy will be represented at each level from grades 3rd-8th. Each player will be placed on teams that are most beneficial to individual development and team success. Teams will be competing at the most competitive tournaments possible to provide for individual evaluations of strengths and weaknesses.

While competing at local and/or regional summer tournaments, HHA team members will receive player development training in their very own practice facility located in Gretna, NE. This top-of-the-line instruction combined with competitive basketball tournaments will ensure progression into maximizing each player’s potential.

 

Philosophy:

Coach Hoffman and the HHA Select team philosophy is based on player development. What sets the HHA program apart is the dedication to making each individual player better for not only the HHA team program but to provide them with skills that will translate to each of their high school programs and to make a successful transition into college. I am excited to work to your player to bring not only a high level of skill instruction to help them to become confident, creative players but also bring the enthusiasm and passion for the game to help foster their own enthusiasm and love for the game. The HHA offensive and defensive system is consistent throughout the entire organization. Players will learn how to play and will be given the skills necessary to be successful within that system. Each grade level/team will continue to add layers to the system to help them learn each aspect of the game. Although we always want to win every game, HHA is more concerned about the process of developing individual players within the team concept and the results will follow. We will get many “game experiences” throughout practice by simulating game situations without the fear of failure. Players will learn new skills and reinforce previous skills by our detailed practices. It isn’t just a practice it is an education at HHA.
