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
with older Elementary students competing in local basketball leagues.
We will represent New Hope Academy and the DMV by displaying what it means to have DISCIPLINE, MOTIVATION, and VISION.

strong academic qualifications providing them with more opportunities for their future.

ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH
Basketball has given me an opportunity to travel the world and touch athletes at all levels,
professional & amateur. I plan to use that experience to help the New Hope boys program
compete at an elite level. We will represent New Hope Academy and the DMV by displaying
what it means to have DISCIPLINE, MOTIVATION, and VISION. These attributes will assist us
in obtaining our goals both on and off the basketball court.”
