Our Mission

Developing youth through basketball

LOCALHOOPS is a training academy. Everything we do has one purpose: to help our athletes develop the skills they need to achieve their basketball goals. We focus on the essential skills of ball handling, shooting, decision making (basketball IQ), and overall athleticism, as well as the intangible skills of teamwork, leadership, and confidence.

We welcome athletes of all abilities, all cultures, and all genders, and we care about each and every one of them. We use the game of basketball to teach our credo, our values, and overall life principles, developing our athletes on and off the court. We're family.

Our Credo

Success Is A Habit

We strongly believe that hard work is the foundation for achieving one's goals, and that building the habit of working hard every single day is the key to long-term success. Our program is built specifically to help our athletes get the most from their dedication. Success Is A Habit.

Our Values

Quality, Integrity, Communication

Our standards and expectations at LOCALHOOPS are very high, starting first and foremost with our coaches, whom we expect to lead by example. We strive for quality, integrity, and great communication in everything we do.

Our History

10 Years Strong

LOCALHOOPS was founded in Seattle in 2009 by Kelly Edwards, starting with just 3 kids. In 2012, we had our first round of teams and now we now work with over a thousand athletes around the greater Seattle area each year. We've grown to include a robust girl's program, an in-house league, a development league, and adult leagues. We've gone from competing locally and regionally to traveling nationally. Join us and be a part of our journey!
