Following in the footsteps of HSBCAMPS, the countries fastest growing youth basketball program, Director Carson Sofro and colleague Michael Quinney opened the states first year round training academy last fall in Eagle. Just eleven months later, HSB Academy is not only home to some of Boise’s top talent, but the country’s as well.
For three weeks this summer, HSB Academy has played host to a handful of athletes looking to improve their game, including those of NBA stature. Players with contracts in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the NBA-Development League, and most recently NBA veteran Mike Harris, have made the trek to Boise to take part in the innovative and challenging sessions offered by HSB Academy personnel each and every week.
“I have to say, the training at HSB Academy is up there with the best of them,” shared Houston native and European pro JR Harrison. “The combination of real live game action and situational training they incorporate into every workout is amazing. It’s like playing in a real game.” Others have quite the same to report.
Mike Harris, whose accolades include a decorated career both in the NBA and overseas added, “This training is on a different level than almost anything I’ve ever experienced. The combination of conditioning, skill work, and mental toughness, pushes players to their limits and I always look forward to the getting to push myself every opportunity I get.”
Training talent from the early elementary grades to the collegiate and professional levels, HSB Academy is a must for anyone looking to step up their game. “We have a great following in Boise and have done so somewhat under the radar,” shared Academy Director Carson Sofro. “There are several hundred athletes in the program to date, and the results and achievements we have been able to be a part of with each an every one of them has been amazing.”
