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.
