OAKLAND, Calif. - Jan. 23, 2014 - PRLog -- If you follow youth, college, and pro basketball then the Oakland Soldier’s Basketball Organization is not a stranger on your list of present day and longtime history.   The Soldiers Program announced recently that they are undergoing a huge expansion to improve youth basketball in the bay area, where they originated. This extension includes partnerships with major training programs like Triple Threat Academy, Hoop Matrix, and Project Basketball.

The Soldiers Organization has become bigger than a game of basketball.  It has become a lifestyle that promotes positivity, a high focus on education, and giving back to the community. Now with the new partnerships, there will be added levels to the program, which include teams at every skill level from ages 8-17 years old.  This will enable more youth to be a part of the brand, along with being able to compete with some of the best.

Triple Threat Academy has been around for 12 years and is led by former Soldier players and coaches, Tony Freccero and Lou Richie.  Former Cal Berkeley star, Randy Duck leads the Hoop Matrix program.  Project Basketball is the brainchild of You Tube training sensation Kelvin “KP” Potts and another former Cal Berkeley star, Ayinde Ubaka.   All three organizations have similar outlooks and strong supremacy to carry out the visions of this power move.

Mark Olivier, Director of the Soldiers basketball organization said, “We are very excited for the growth of our program!  I think it will also challenge our players to want to play at an elite level.  We are in a position to improve and change the game, so that is what we’re doing”.

The Soldiers have had NBA players like LeBron James, Chauncy Billups, Eddie House, Drew Gooden, and Chuck Hayes come through the program.  The Soldiers program also has alumni like Aaron Gordon (Arizona), Brandon Ashley (Arizona), Nick Johnson (Arizona), and Dominic Artis (Oregon), to name a few that are currently playing college hoops. Present-day highly ranked high school players like Stanley Johnson (Mater Dei), and Ivan Rabb (Bishop ODowd), are also members of the Soldiers program.

A first set of signups/evaluations takes place this upcoming weekend on January 25th & 26th.  Registration and all information on the Soldiers Basketball Organization can be found at For information on Triple Threat Academy, please visit, for Hoop Matrix, visit and for Project Basketball, visit
