What is the Hoopchalk Basketball Podcast?

The Hoopchalk Basketball Podcast is the best Youth Basketball podcast for young AAU basketball players and their families. Our motto is – NO MORE GUESS WORK! Our mission is to help young basketball players and their families successfully navigate the ever-changing world of youth basketball. In this podcast we will unlock all of the locked doors that have become road blocks for youth basketball players. We will also help those who dream, but have no idea how to move towards their basketball dreams.

Figuring it out alone is a pretty daunting task. I was in your shoes. My son Moses and I invite you to learn from our wins and our losses. We hope it will help someone else in their journey toward their dreams. In this podcast, we will cover everything about youth basketball – from what to look for when joining a team, to college recruiting, to social media, and even how to develop the mental toughness that will allow your young athlete to soar in games. “There I was with this kid who wanted to follow his dream of playing pro basketball and, as a non-basketball parent, I had no idea how to make it happen.

When I asked others, I constantly heard things like – ‘You just have to be good and people will find you.’ I knew that waiting for the phone to ring couldn’t be the key to success. So I started digging and I found out that, like every career, there is an actual path that you MUST take to even have a chance. I am excited to share my findings with you. Let’s work together to make this happen for our little and not-so-little ballers!” – Troy Horne See you inside episode 14!
