    Connecticut Premier Hoops Development (PHD) was organized as a comprehensive youth basketball program that focuses on various areas in the advancement of players.

    Our main focus is guiding and developing athletes to be able to reach their fullest potential. Our program provides focused, intensive training that is essential for improvement while emphasizing the importance of team work, sportsmanship, and safety.

    We as a group strive to make every player in the program improve in all facets of the game. We use our experience as players and coaches to break down every aspect of the sport. We use our practices to focus on the team aspect and clinics to work on individual skills. Our primary goal is to get every player in our program physically and mentally ready to make the next step as a player, a student, and an individual.

    With two practices per week we coordinate our time to focus on different aspects of the game. Coaches focus on fundamental skill sets while also teaching different offensive/defensive sets to help the players education of the game. No matter the age of the team the coaches have expectations that they hold the players too.

    Our goal is to develop each player into the best athlete and person they can be on and off the court. There is no program in the area that is offering what we provide.
