IHDL Boys League

Indy Hoops Academy is an independently owned and operated youth basketball program that trains and coaches over 60 teams at a variety of locations just North of Indianapolis.  The company was founded and is run by Matt Webster, a former Cathedral HS assistant coach and professional basketball player.  Coach Webster has a staff of professional trainers and coaches that teach young athletes to succeed on and off the court.  

Eight years ago, Coach Webster expanded his Indy Hoops Academy program by starting the Indy Hoops Developmental League (IHDL).  The IHDL program is a special program solely for kids from CYO/Private schools to either supplement their CYO/Private school season (4th-8th grade) or to serve as a “pre-CYO”/Private school league (1st-3rd grade).  Coach Webster runs the IHDL program side-by-side with Coach Tim Adams, head boys basketball coach and assistant athletic director at Park Tudor.  Coach Webster and Coach Adams are extremely focused on fundamentals and skill development and are very excited to kick-off this years IHDL Season.  Below, you will find details regarding both the CYO/Private School Supplemental program (4th-8th) and the “pre-CYO”/Private School League (1st-3rd).  Should you have any questions, please call 317-896-0800 or email mwebster@indyhoops.org.

 

Youth League Program (grades 1-3)

  • This program serves as a pre-CYO/pre-private school basketball league. The IHDL professional coaches will run a 1-hour practice/training once a week at either Best Choice Fieldhouse (Fishers), The Play School at Legacy (Just West of 146th & Allisonville), The Jungle in Westfield, or Park Tudor for each team based on your team schedule and travel preference. (requests can be sent via email after registration)
  • The emphasis in this program will be skill development for the players. We believe that skill development will increase each player's confidence on the floor, thus increasing the enjoyment of playing.
  • Each team will play in a league constructed by IHDL made up of pre-CYO/Private school teams of the same age group (1st graders play 1st graders...etc.). Games will be held at Best Choice Fieldhouse OR Park Tudor on Saturday mornings (session I games start October 29th and session II games start Jan 7th) and will be coached by your pre-CYO/Private school coach (game coach provided by you/your team … IHDL professional staff handles the weekly training sessions).
  • No game admission fees in IHDL league
  • Fall Session I runs from Oct 24th– Dec 18th and includes:  8 training sessions, 7 league games and 1 tournament
  • Winter Session II runs from January 2nd – February 26th and includes:  8 training sessions, 7 league games, 1 tournament
  • Per player price is $210 per session (pricing is all inclusive – no hidden fees – includes:  practice/training, games and game admission fees for parents and all other spectators that choose to come watch the games)

CYO/Private Supplemental Program (grades 4-8)

  • This program is designed to supplement the CYO/Private school basketball season.  Teams will train for 1 hour weekly with IHDL professional coaches/trainers.  These weekly training sessions will focus solely on player skill development.  Then, teams will also be registered to play in the Best Choice Fieldhouse league (level appropriate and coached by your CYO/Private school coach).
  • This IHDL program designed for 4th – 8th grade CYO/Private school teams will increase the amount of skill development that each player is receiving and allow for competition against different opponents...enhancing the overall CYO/Private school experience and growth of each player.  **IHDL will ensure there will be no conflict with CYO/Private school scheduled games.**
  • Fall Session I runs from October 24th– December 18th and includes:  8 training sessions, 7 league games, 1 tournament
  • Winter Session II runs from January 2nd– February 26th and includes:  8 training sessions, 7 league games, 1 tournament
  • Per player price is $210 per session (since IHDL will register your team to play in an outside league at either Best Choice or PAC/Finch Creek, spectators will have game admission fees that are established by those leagues)
  • Registration deadline is October 15th for Fall Session I and December 15th for Winter Session II

IHDL Girls Winter League

A couple of years ago for Winter Session II, we expanded the program to include an IHDL GIRLS program. The IHDL GIRLS program has been met with much success and therefore, will be continued moving forward every Winter.  We will only have a Winter session as the Cathedral coaches will continue to run their program during the Fall months and we are NOT trying to compete with what they have already started for the girls’ program.  This program was started years ago when I was at Cathedral for boys and with myself having two daughters, I want to continue the growth of girls basketball during the Winter months.  We hope to have the opportunity to work with you and your girls in this upcoming IHDL Winter Session II season.
