Hoopology is based upon an idea to develop participants overall academic and basketball skill set. Camp Head Coach Jim Cleamons, uses his experience as a collegiate, NBA player and International Professional coach to teach his philosophy that continues to garner him success. Coach Cleamons partnered with former NBA players, the Los Angeles Lakers Youth Foundation and Brotherhood Crusade to create the annual Jim Cleamons Books and Basketball week long day camp for the last 13 years. Cleamons along with his wife enhanced the idea and began Hoopology Camps in Columbus, Ohio using a similar model to mentor academic athletes to become effective leaders in their community or as we say CHAMPIONS. Jim played with and learned from the best, which fuels his ambitions to teach practical life skills and the sport of basketball. He is known for his collegiate era with The Ohio State University basketball team, and NBA Championship coaching with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.
