 Hoop Group Academic Elite


The Hoop Group Academic Elite Sessions give high academic students a chance to be seen by high academic colleges
and universities. Just like every Hoop Group Elite Session, exposure is a key ingredient to what we provide at Academic Elite Camp.

With our 3.0 minimum GPA requirement, college coaches from around the country know that they can come to Hoop Group Academic Elite to find a student that fits their needs on the court and in the classroom. Schools from all over the country come to evaluate and recruit at Academic Elite every year!


In the past 7 years every Ivy League Champion has had multiple Hoop Group Academic Elite Camp alumni on their roster!  Ivy League Champions:


  • Princeton (2017) – 9 Hoop Group Alumni

  • Yale (2016) – 6 Hoop Group Alumni

  • Harvard (2015) – 8 Hoop Group Alumni

  • Harvard (2014) -10 Hoop Group Alumni

  • Harvard (2013) – 7 Hoop Group Alumni

  • Harvard (2012) – 9 Hoop Group Alumni

  • Princeton (2011) – 10 Hoop Group Alumni


Exposure has always been a key pillar of what we provide at Hoop Group Elite, but the reason camp is a must attend is because of the instruction that comes along with it. Our staff is made up of some of the best D2, D3, and high school coaches in the country. Our staff prides themselves on developing our campers into college players. Through skill development, film study, positional work, and guest lectures, our campers gain the tools to become successful student-athletes.
