Finally! A place where your children can learn how to play basketball, starting with the fundamentals every SATURDAY morning.


The academy currently caters to children ages 5 to 18 learning the fundamentals of basketball. Classes meet every Saturday and are grouped according to age and/or skill level.

My coaching expertise allows me to work with varying abilities and limitations within each age group.

Each child receives individualized attention according to his or her strengths and weaknesses. The group environment enables the children to learn from each other and excel amongst their peers under my guidance.

Fundamentals training and discipline is the main focus at RHA teaching children the foundation needed for every sport. Various drills are performed that develop speed, coordination, strength and endurance.

These skills are utilized in every aspect of the child’s life and specifically transcends to the team sports arena. Every child is taught to apply these learned skills at the academy in the game of basketball.

Small Group Training

Skill Specific Training: Athletes always train with other athletes who are at a similar skill level. Whether you are at any of our levels above, you will be challenged as you compete in a small group with athletes who are similarly skilled.

Team Training

We host team training sessions at Ramos Hoops Academy where we will work with your coaches to develop individual and team skills, for both offensive and defensive.

Friday Shoot Outs

Friday small group training sessions are dedicated exclusively to shooting from 5:30 - 7:00 pm.

This session will be designed to help you become a consistently better shooter whether you are shooting off the dribble, catching and shooting, or shooting free throws. Coach Ramos will help you improve your shooting form, shooting release, and follow through. We believe that dedicating one day each week exclusively to shooting will quickly improve your confidence and over-all game.
