Athletic Development 

Dr. Rosalind Osgood Ministries International

Higher Learning Hoops is an organization that specializes in the athletic academic and life development of athletes. Our mission to educate and equip athletes with skills necessary to compete on an elite level. We strive to instill and empower today’s youth with the confidence, commitment and integrity needed to live a productive and successful life. Our goal is to teach athletes the value of respect for themselves, their peers and their community through hard work and discipline. We accomplish this by our fundamental basketball training and encouraging sportsmanship through positive lecture and professional instruction.

Higher Learning Hoops Structure


Summer/Spring Camps are held during times where athletes don’t have school. These camps are week long skill instruction used to strengthen the fundamental skills of an athlete. Each camp has a specific skill focus like speed/agility, basic basketball, or advance basketball. We hope that through detail skill instruction each camper will gain knowledge and greater love for their sport. Each camper will gain the self-confidence and self- motivation necessary to be successful in academics & athletics.
Campers will receive T-Shirt & PlayBook:
