I use a one- of- a -kind online HoopSkills I.Q. Assessment that first gauges you and your athlete's basic basketball knowledge. I then use Pre, Mid and Post Assessments. We then meet as a group or in person for Q & A, webinars and one on one coaching. If you're raising a young athlete and you have no basketball experience, this training is for your family.
I am a retired professional basketball player that uses a unique online method of teaching basketball to 6th through 9th graders and their parents! I have been training young basketball players for 15 years. I'll increase your entire family's HoopSkills I.Q. from the comfort of your home.

Hey! I’m Coach Reed and I love basketball! I love playing, coaching and talking basketball. Throughout my years in the sport, I have grown to understand what it takes to be a well-rounded athlete. And, I am passionate about helping young people achieve their basketball goals!
Basketball has opened a lot of doors for me both personally and professionally. Fortunately, I had great success since I was 16 years old. Early achievement was one of the things that consistently propelled my career. As a Junior National Team Gold Medalist, the opportunity to play basketball in Montevideo, Uruguay was an amazing experience. Playing with outstanding teammates such as Grant Hill, Allan Houston, Calbert Chaney, Terry Dehere, Luther Wright, Conrad McRae, and many others helped build my career. The gold medal I won in Uruguay made me work harder to become a better person and athlete.
In high school, I was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and named “Mr. Basketball of the State of Louisiana.” This led to a full scholarship at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. I worked hard my freshman year and earned the title, “Freshman of The Year in The Metro Conference.” It was a great honor and privilege to lead the team to 9th in the nation after helping Tulane reestablish its basketball program in a very short period. I was inducted into the Tulane Hall of Fame, The Louisiana Basketball Hall of Fame, became the “All-time Leading Scorer” in Tulane’s history when I left the university. And, to top off a great college career, my #55 jersey was retired and hangs in Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldhouse.
And then… In 1993, I was drafted by the World Champion Chicago Bulls! Now that was exciting! It felt great! I’ll never forget that moment with my family. We were all so nervous waiting for the announcement. Ahhhhh! I can still feel the tension just thinking about it. It was what I had worked so hard for and now I was starting to see the fruit of all those suicide drills, seventeens, running miles at a time, up early and in the weight room, and extreme exhaustion. I’m going to the NBA! Yeah baby!!!
I went to camp with the Bulls and then decided to play in Europe. I played in several countries and experienced the game of basketball with some of the best coaches and trainers around the globe. Learning different techniques and strategies from different cultures provided me with in-depth respect, knowledge, and understanding that can help young athletes with all aspects of the game including earning scholarships, sports nutrition and how to position yourself for success. I can also give parents insight into how they can support and help young athletes from an early age. I will tap my vast network of former collegiate and professional players to ensure and contribute to the success of all participant athletes.
The wonder of this team sport is that it builds character, encourages teamwork and promotes social skills. Playing basketball is fun… anywhere in the world. I invite you to come and expand your horizons with us at HoopCasters.
Everything about my career has perfectly positioned me to help young basketball players and their parents. Check us out. At the very least, take one of the assessments and see where you stand. I look forward to meeting you at one of HoopCasters’ events, classes, and workouts!
