WELCOME TO HOOP KIDZ
At HOOP KIDZ, we serve up a fun and rewarding basketball learning experience. From our after school camps during the week, to our Saturday and Summer Camps at the Jamaica College basketball courts, HOOP KIDZ is a co-ed basketball camp geared to teach young kids fundamental basketball skills in a fun learning environment. Kids learn dribbling, passing, shooting form, triple threat stance, defensive stance, positioning and team work. We are committed to giving our kids a head start in developing their basketball game while prioritizing their enjoyment of the game. HOOP KIDZ offers a wide variety of entertaining, engaging and inspiring basketball activities for boys and girls from ages 7 to 11.
The HOOP KIDZ experience promotes confidence, independence, decision making, socialization, skill building, creativity, and self discovery in a safe and nurturing environment. Our kids are encouraged to be themselves,
to try something new, and most importantly, to have fun!
Basketball is an exciting game, played by millions of young boys and girls around the world.
The sport fosters the development of peer relationships, team spirit, confidence and self-esteem, leadership qualities, and physical health. Basketball is a welcoming and inclusive sport that
can be played by people of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities.
Best of all, basketball is fun to play!
WHY HOOP KIDZ?
Unfortunately, most young people in Jamaica don’t start learning to play basketball until High School. By that time, they are already way behind their peers in the US and with lucrative NCAA college scholarships to compete for, there’s a lot of catching up to do. At Hoop Kidz, we are committed to giving kids a good head start by shaping a basketball experience that balances health, well-being and teaching the fundamentals of the sport, with fun and overall enjoyment.

My son wasn't interested in football or running tracks at school. I wanted something else to give him as an option and this looks like a good fit.
- Leo, Kingston
I need to get Joshua off the tablet and the video games this summer. Basketball camp will get him outdoors and get him active and more physical. I love it.
- Tanya, Kingston
I know coach Dwayne since his NCAA days so when I heard that he was the head coach at Hoop Kidz, I quickly signed up Kyle.
- Nigel, Kingston
Finally a team sport for my two girls. I wasn't very happy with the lack of team building sports and activities at their school. I think this is going to a very good experience for them.
