Currently, we are building an exciting Basketball program at New Hope Academy. Inspired by the vision of Coach Caldwell,
we expanded our Basketball programs adding girl’s and boy’s Varsity, Junior Varsity and Middle School teams.
In addition, pre-K through elementary students participate in co-ed intramural basketball skills training programs
and older Elementary students competing in local basketball leagues.
Our vision for New Hope athletics is to develop high level student athletes who excel on and off the court.
