Basketball is one of the most popular sports in America, with over 26 million Americans playing. A lot of young people want to get in the game as they watch professional players excel and with that desire their parents provide support every step of the way.
With the television broadcast of college and professional games, sports journalism keeps youth and basketball parents in the midst of all the basketball action. Commentary surrounding the game, players and coaches make for interesting content and opens the doors for career opportunities connected to basketball and communication for those who love the game.
n order to effectively serve our target audience of 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade basketball players and their parents, we've developed a progressive program that teaches basketball science and broadcasting. Youth learn the game of basketball and sportscasting while parents learn specific ways they can help their children succeed at the game. Both parents and their children are increasing their HoopSkills I. Q. and SportsCasting Skills I. Q.
Online training is generally held twice a week. Students and parents can choose basketball, sportscasting or both.
I retired from professsional basketball in 2000 and have trained hundreds of youth basketball players aged 8 through 18. While providing professional basketball lessons, I have crosstrained basketball families with at home fitness guidance and nutritional tips. My travels and experiences have euipped me with sports and fitness knowledge gained from living in countries such as Slovenia, Italy, Spain, Greece and Japan.

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've experienced 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.
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 the 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 an 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 about 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.
From helping my students gain access to college coaches during recruiting, to guiding parents on how to a choose an agent.
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. I understand young players just getting started and professional athletes at the top of their game. I also understand how parents can help their children in the sport and how children respond to that support.
Check us out. At the very least, take one of our assessments and see where you stand. I look forward to meeting you at one of HoopCasters’ events, classes and workouts!
