The spring is almost here! That means the Prep Hoops Circuit is just around the corner! It is time for us to start previewing the teams participating on the circuit and talking to their directors.
We caught up with Breakaway to discuss their upcoming season! Check out what he had to say!
Why did you choose the Prep Hoops Circuit?
We choose Prep Hoops because we liked the schedule flexibility and the exposure opportunity for our players. Prep Hoops continues to get stronger and we are always trying to find the best competition for our players. We are excited to play in their events this year.
What is the goal of your program for 2020?
Our goal at Breakaway has never changed from Day 1, our goal every day is to GET BETTER. We are the largest skill development program in Illinois training over 8K players a year and partnering with over 300 feeder teams to provide skill development training. This will be our first year for our 4- Invite Only teams to play on the Prep Hoops Circuit and the Under Armour Rise Circuit. We are excited for the challenge.
What is your program’s mission each year?
Our mission is: Teaching players how to work hard and understand that being successful at anything is a process. This process takes focus, hard work, perseverance, and patience. We use the game of basketball to teach these lessons that will translate to their everyday lives.
