Welcome to the world of Hoop Dreams Club/Travel Basketball, where our founder, Mike Scott, has been at the helm since 2007. With an extensive background on top circuits like Adidas Gauntlet, Adidas Gold, Under Armour Rise, and Nike, Mike has consistently led Hoop Dreams to the forefront of the travel basketball scene in Kentucky. Over the years, his teams have not only competed at a high level but have also successfully helped placed hundreds of athletes into colleges nationwide. As Mike continues to grow his basketball empire with Hoop Dreams Basketball Academy, you can trust that your child's journey to the next level is in expert hands.

Hoop Dreams is proud to announce that it will be exclusively rocking with New Balance, making us the only true Kentucky program, organization, or team to participate in a top-level shoe circuit. This means players from Kentucky no longer have to leave the state or join a neighboring program in Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, or Tennessee. Hoop Dreams is committed to being the top-level program that keeps Kentucky players right where they belong—in Kentucky.
