Hawk Hoops is a premier AAU program located in Garden Grove, California. The goal of providing a unique opportunity for youth student athletes to learn and develop their basketball skills in preparation for high school still remains. The program’s mission to utilize youth travel ball, practices, training and tournament games as a platform for players to improve, gain confidence and compete on a high level continues. Through these programs, each player is able to interact and be mentored by Hawk Hoop’s coaching staff of experienced coaches and former college and professional players. One of their primary focuses is to provide all of their players an opportunity to succeed and grow through the game of basketball while having fun. The future of Hawk Hoops looks bright as well. One of its new goals is to utilize all of its resources and connections to help players on the high school and college level. Even though we know every player won’t make it to the NBA, if Hawk Hoops can help players become productive citizens and respectable human beings in society, its mission is complete.
Hawk Hoops was established by NBA alum Juaquin Hawkins. The Houston Rockets’ guard earned 14 years of combined experience playing in the NBA, professionally in six different countries, and D-1 college basketball at Long Beach State. Juaquin’s background, training and playing professionally in the USA, China, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Australia, has allowed him to teach and mentor thousands of kids across the country through his Hawk Hoops Program. Though he started Hawk Hoops as its only coach, over time the program added other former collegiate and professional players to its coaching roster. By using highly skilled and experienced former collegiate and professional players, Coach Hawk sought to uniquely position the program to provide learning opportunities to youth players through after school programs, camps, personal basketball lessons, and club travel basketball teams.
