Hoops 101 Returns to Asia!!!

Hall of Fame Basketball Coach Bob Hurley Sr., Hoops 101, and Gunner’s Adult Basketball Camp have joined together to start the 1st Annual Gunner’s for St. Anthony.

When you have a moment, please check out the trailer below, for Coach Bob Hurley Sr.’s movie The Street Stops Here:


The event will held May 14th and May 15th at the Archangel Michael Greek Church in Port Washington, NY.  Coach Hurley will be overseeing each of the segments of the camp on both days.  It will be open to adults only and will have 2 age groups – 25 to 40 years old, and 41 and over.  Details regarding the daily itinerary of the 2 day camp can be found in the camp brochure (2016 Gunners for St Anthony).

The camp will be open to the first 40 people who register.

All proceeds will be going to St. Anthony HS.  Included in the camp brochure are cost of the 2 day camp and details regarding the opportunity to attend and watch the camp if participation is not an option.  There is also the opportunity to sponsor the event at a few different levels.

Coach Hurley is a personal friend of mine.  He represents everything that is right about helping young men to grow on the court as players and off the court as people.  St. Anthony is a school that must raise a certain amount of money each year just to keep the doors open.

We are hoping that this different concept of an adult fantasy basketball camp can be the start of a new fundraising effort for St. Anthony of Jersey City, NJ.

Here’s what Coach Guy Molloy (current Head Coach of the WNBL Melbourne Boomers) has to say about Hoops 101 –

“I got to see Mike in action during a clinic in Melbourne (Australia) recently.  Aside from the superb technical content, what impressed me was Mike’s passion, focus, and complete humility.  After all, it’s rare we get a US coach with Div 1 coaching experience prepared to come so far and work with players as young as 11 or 12.  The night in question was in a cold gym with lots of distracting noise, and only a small crowd of parents & coaches in attendance.  Yet, if you didn’t have this perspective, you could swear Mike was doing a clinic at the Final Four such was the quality and energy of his presentation.  I would highly recommend Mike to you, your coaching staff, your Club, or School.  You won’t be disappointed.”

Some of Guy’s career successes are:
  • Current WNBL Coach – Melbourne Boomers
  • Head Coach, Australia U17 Men [Silver Medallist FIBA World Championship 2012]
  • Head Coach Australia U21 Men
  • Head Coach Victoria [Metro] U18 Men – Australian Champions 2007, 2008, 2009
  • Australian Coach of the Year 2009
  • WNBL Coach of the Year 1995 and 2014
  • Assistant Coach – Australia Olympic Women’s Team 1990, 1992, 1994
